Why do people bring toddlers to a PG-13 movie?

Went to see Mountain Between Us last weekend.  A very dark, LOUD, violent movie.  A couple in front of us had their toddler with them. I just don't understand. it. The child, less than two years old I am sure, cried for the first ten minutes of the movie The mom finally stepped out for about ten minutes. They came back and then the child proceeded to talk, jabber and whine through the rest of the movie.  I just don't understand why parents bring little ones to these movies.  I wanted to go to grown up movies when DS was little but I DIDN'T. Why are parents so selfish??

I absolutely hate that. I've had it happen a few times, and I've reported it to the manager. There is NO reason for that (or for anyone) to talk through a movie and ruin it for others).

I always have, since my kids were born. None of them have cried, talked or made noise during a movie. They just quietly slept on us or in their infant seat as babies.

Maybe they don't have anyone to babysit.

I was thinking this too.

Quoting virginiamama71: Maybe they don't have anyone to babysit.

My kids have attended movies since they were infants. I never had an issue with them being loud.
