So, I'm sure you've all heard about the parents that took their three or so month old out to the midnight showing of batman when the shooting happened. There've been a few debates on my Facebook with people discussing if it's ok to bring an infant to a midnight movie theatre. Well, some parents are arguing, saying the baby is fine cause it just sleeps through the movie, or how not everyone has a babysitter to go at that time. Um, who cares?! If you don't have a babysitter, don't go to the movies! There is NO excuse to bring a brand new baby to a movie theatre! I leave those places with my ears hurting from how loud it is, I can't imagine what that baby would be going through. Not to mention, that baby should be sleeping at home, not out in the cold standing in line and then a theatre for hours! When you are a parent, you have to give some things up, that's what being a parent means. I can't believe how selfish some people are.
Edit: I am in no way saying this is what I got out of the event that occurred. What happened was a tragic event, and my hearts go out to the families. All I'm talking about, is the light that was shed onto the situation from this. It's just a discussion about weither or not it's ok to bring an infant to a movie theater.
