I've had friends with kids tell me that a lot of the kiddie babble and noise they've learned to tune out in their own because it just happens constantly. They don't always notice the low roar because it seems subdued to them, but is annoying the shit out of everyone else in the room.
^^^ i think that is true to some extent. they babble and sing constantly, and are just learning to use modulated speaking voices.
and those are among the reasons why we haven't taken our toddlers to the movies yet. and if we did take them, it would be to a G-rated animated movie during the daytime.
I'm saying that society and it's prevailing attitudes DO have a direct influence on children. A society that thinks its OK to be rude TO kids is going to result in kids who ARE rude to society. Kids who are rude are going to raise further rude kids. Clearly the mother in the story was a rude cunt herself or she would have taken action before anyone got pissed off enough to tell them to be quiet. Knocking a kid's tooth out of his head is not going to teach him manners, especially when he obviously isn't learning them at home.
I would have just asked them to please be quiet. If that didn't work I would talk to an usher. If that didn't work I would ask for a refund. Would I be annoyed? Hellz yeah. But then I would get on with my life. It's just a movie, not worth getting charged with a felony.
What don't you get? No one here is disagreeing that it is inappropriate and wrong to assault someone's child, regardless of how annoying they are. How is this opinion an unpopular one in this thread? Are you reading the same thread as the rest of us????
I have two children, one almost 5 and one 2. They are well behaved, they know if I take them any where in public that they best be angels and not make too much noise, run around or bother people. I understand they are kids, but I refuse to allow them to act like feral animals around other people. In fact, I can't tell you how many times people, usually elderly, have stopped me to tell me how pleasant they are. That's my fucking job, people are wonderful to them because I am doing my job of making them well behaved humans. If you are an asshole parent and raise assholes, how do you think society will treat them- like fucking assholes!!! And as a parent, if I go to an adult movie or a restaurant that is not family friendly at night, I expect not to have kids running around and disrupting everyone. It's called respect and it's not my job to teach their children about it.

I don't necessarily think it's the role of society to parent my child, but I do hope that society is kind and helpful if my child is ever in need. To me, I think that is sort of what "it takes a village" is all about.
And my kid can be a shit. She's 18 months and the world is all about her right now. We don't get out to eat much
I'm 31 and I'm STILL afraid of my mom lol.

Healthy is merely the slowest possible rate at which one can die.
^ ugh, there's a typo! I am really hating my iphone's autocorrect, it's constantly changing the words I type! It makes me look illiterate and I swear I spend more time correcting my autocorrect to the point that it's not a time saver anymore.
