well, it wasn't clear what kids age are we talking about here. seems like parents supposed to shut up their kids no matter how old they are... I've been on each side of this fence and cannot stand when people talk the way you did - you hate screaming kids? get a private jet or get over it... Many people are driving me nuts on the plain - people from India who don't know that showers exist on this planet, or fat people who take half of my sit - so what? I learned to deal with it so other people annoyed by young kids should do the same.

^^^^Not to start a fight but it's kind of arrogant to bring a kid on a flying tube & having the rest of the passengers held hostage by its crying. It's almost as if you expect everyone else to deal with your kids behavior & they shouldn't be annoyed by that? Sorry but kids are annoying.

so what do you suggest if you HAVE to travel and MUST take your kids with you? Do you really think parents are enjoying the scream???

it's a good idea to have ear plugs....

For children with developmental difficulties, there are ways to ease travel. Social stories are a good start.

No, I had a typical child. It is not normal for a child to scream and carry on for an hour or more at a time once they are well into their first year.

Exactly. I never would take a colicky child on an airplane. Not fair to the child or those around them.

Since I don't have a live in nanny or even family to watch over my child, I guess my dog would do a fine job of caring for him in my absence.

Are people really so arrogant and dismissive of everyone else's circumstances that they think leaving a child at home is the answer to whether or not they should be brought on flights?
Unless it was to take the child to a doctor across the country for life saving treatment, I'm not so sure there was a need as opposed to a want.

There's so much wrong with this post that I'm not even going to begin.
