So I will be flying with 3 kids this week--one that has autism with sensory issues, another that is a baby who babbles a lot, do you think it would be tacky or appreciated if I made goodie bags for some of the surrounding passengers with like ear plugs and some chocolate?

I think it would be appreciated... most people I've flown with have been pretty great when the kids were younger...

I don't think it's necessary... I think it'd be kind of weird...

St his is my thought on those. They're stupid. Your children are passengers just like everyone else, they will act age appropriate, and the surrounding passenger will just get over it.

I fly a lot and have heard my fare share of babies freaking out on planes, and I'm ok with it. Babies or special needs get will do that, and it's ok.

There's nothing to be sorry about. I mean the annoying guy who doesn't stop talking doesn't hand out "I'm sorry I'm annoying bags" so you shouldn't either.

Dont they sell earplugs on the plane? If people have a problem they can buy some.

Sorry folks but that's life.

I fly a lot.

I don't like ear plugs. I like parents who control their kids and silently entertain them. It's kind of like giving your taxi driver a bucket of soapy water and a scrub brush and saying, "here is a gift. I get car sick often."

I get that but as stated, it will be their first time flying aka maybe be more fearful than usual, sometimes controlling a child with autism is easier said than done and a baby is a baby and saying "be quiet" doesnt work.  Get off your high horse and be realistic and not uppity.

I wouldn't draw attention to myself like that.  While it's a nice thought, in this day and age, it may give some the wrong impression and make them more aware of things your kids do that they normally wouldn't have.
