Screaming for 8 Hours and Videotaped...Mom shaming or not?

Cafemom and other outlets wrote about a flight from Germany to Newark, NJ which entailed an horrible flight with a child who screamed through most of the 8 hour duration. Another passenger recorded the incident and posted it to YouTube with a "demonic" child caption. Do you think this is mom shaming?

Secondly, others are stating she shouldn't have brought her son with behavioral needs on the flight in the first place. What are your thoughts?

Special needs or not screaming for 8 hours would drive me crazy.

I think people need to realize that it’s a risk you take while flying.


ETA : I thought this was a crying baby, I didn’t watch video

Do you guys think she shouldn't travel if she's unable to control her child?

That mom was not parenting her child.  I would have been pissed.  That was outrageous and yeah, she should be shamed.  In one of the videos the child was crawling/scooting all over the top part of the airplane seat.  She had zero control over that kid.

So where I think this is a mom fail, I think for a kid that age to scream for 8 hours straight he had to be in some pain. I’m wondering if he has ear issues and the pressure change was causing him pain. Even with behavioral issues (and I have one with behavioral issues) a 3 year will tire eventually. For 8 hours...that kid had to have been in some pain.

My head would explode listening to that noise for 8 hours. No. Not okay and she needs to figure shit out. I wouldn't take video and post it but she needs to be put on notice. Fellow passengers do not appreciate that type of behavior.

Quoting ninjakids: I think people need to realize that it’s a risk you take while flying.

I watched some of the videos.  It went beyond just screaming.  She was letting the child crawl and scoot over the top of the airplane seats, over peoples seats at that.
