what do you think about the kid ban??

I can't link the article. ..but it rather annoys me. There are restaurants, airlines, grocery stores, & movie theatres banning children. Children are apparently just so annoying that they should be left at home with a sitter, should we actually entertain the idea of going to dinner. While I agree some kids are out of control, it's the we know it all people who have no children, who wrote the article. They call themselves Dink or dual income no kids. This is the situation a friend of mine is in. She always wants those kids to just shut up, or if that was my kid I'd beat them. That's what her dad did. He didn't tolerate that. Maybe that's why they barely talk..on a side note, I get so annoyed with friends who don't have kids. For example. " Alexander was up at 3 am this morning. "(Me) " Whhhyyyyy????!!" Says my friend. Well, how the heck should I know? Or how much longer are you going to breastfeed? The same question at least weekly for the past year. I honestly CANNOT wait til she has kids...Ahhh ..lol.
How about you, what are your feelings??

Oh, and how happy would you be after making your list,packing up your kids, to get to the grocery store, & they say, " oh these are the kid free shopping hours?" I would be less than pleased. Apparently there is a whole foods in Missouri that does this.

I think kids need to go out in public so they learn how to behave in public. I try to take dd with me everywhere I go, but there are some days when she's just having meltdowns left and right and I need a break away for an hour or so. If I took dd anywhere where they'd didn't allow kids, I would ask them to give me money for a sitter or else I wasn't leaving. Sitters aren't free, but taking your kids out to run errands with you is (most of the time..lol).

I agree. Parents do need to get a grip on their kids. My son is not aloud to scream. We address it as soon as it starts. It would be nice to be able to go without him, but like you said, who can afford a sitter to just go to the grocery store?

I don't really have a problem with it.

I would not do business with those establishments. I will go out of my way to stop doing business with someplace I don't like. And I think if all parents did that, these places may not survive. People with children are a lot of people. Kind of like a strike.

I really don't have a problem with it. When my husband and I got out or take our couples vacations we try and find places that are not kid friendly and do not allow children.

 honestly, I don't think they could legally refuse service if you showed up w/ your kids during a kid free hour.

Personally, I think such things are ridiculous. Any business that put such a ban in place would lose my business.

I guess I just couldn't imagine vacationing w/o my son. But then again, I don't like to really leave him at all!

I respect that it is their decision, however I find it unnerving that the world seems to be less kid friendly these days.

Are kids becoming THAT obnoxious, or are people really becoming so intolerant of our youth?
