    When I'm paying money to attend a movie, or go out to dinner, I expect to be able to enjoy it without disruptions from a child who is too young to be there in the first place and is unable to control its behavior. There have honestly been times at the movie theater when I wanted to to turn to one of the parents sitting there with a babbling toddler or screaming baby and demand that they reimburse me for my ticket.
    Like on a public bus??

    Thanks.

    Getting back on topic though, I am betting Megan Denise Fox will be one of those lazy mothers that let their special snowflakes piss everyone off in the theater!

Deal with it or don't go. If you can't cope with kids in public don't go where kids might be in public. Simple as that.
    Fuck that mommy zombie bullshit. Kids should not be in adult movies. Kids who cannot behave should not be in theaters period. Same with restaurants: If your stupid brat can't control themselves because of your shitty parenting, or you ignore them when they act out, or think it's "cute" and your attitude is "fuck the rest of you, put up with my shitty kid because ITS A PRECIOUS SNOWFLAKE AND DOESNT DO ANYTHING WRONG" then you're a complete asshole.

    Teach your kids how to fucking behave, teach them manners and how to act in public and if they act up, you discipline them or REMOVE THEM FROM THE SITUATION. It's called "consequences".

    Either that or leave them the fuck at home with a babysitter. Either way, this "kids/shitty parents first" thing is played out.

    No one is even arguing for that, Grimm. That was supposed to be a ridiculous statement that is equally ridiculous as "if your kids don't know how to behave in public dont bring them out" statement. Kids need to get out to learn how to socialize properly. Responsible parents know this and ANY parent knows that kids are actually, like, little people. Often with their own needs and moods that don't always match up with our expectations at the time. A responsible parent uses that unpredictable energy to teach their children the expectations of their family and society. A parent who lets their kid run around and act like an animal is not being responsible.

    Responding to bad manners with physical violence is some pretty piss-poor manners. If society isn't polite, how can they expect their children to be?

But even if the parents are irresponsible, strangers should not be taking it upon themselves to assault other strangers because they do not behave the way they think they should. Don't hit kids. Hell, don't hit anyone. That's pretty basic shit, in my humble opinion.

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.

    Unfortunately there are always going to be unruly annoying kids in these places, that's life. It doesn't mean they should get attacked though! If you can't control yourself not to hit an annoying child then that's your problem. That's a general 'you', not aiming that at anyone btw - (well apart from the guy this thread is about)

    But yet not the ones that directly contradict those...it's tough to passionately take both sides of a conversation.

    So what you're saying is it's ok to hit kids, right?
    If being cunty is wrong, I don't wanna be right.
