That's the way it is in this spread-out, mobile country of ours. Sorry if that doesn't meet the needs of those "grownups" who can't stand the sound or sight of children.
And thank Southwest for giving you the means to do that. This sounds more like a brag than it does a contribution to the thread.

We weren't talking about defending anybody's non-sense behavior.

No, this child was not JUST talking. The kid would not stop and was loud, more than just talking in a regular voice. I shouldn't be asked to fly only certain times of the day to avoid those critters.

Well no, obviously not.

Surely you cannot expect parents to discipline their special snowflakes. Everyone is supposed to adapt to them and be considerate of their situations

The mere thought of disciplining their child is too much effort.


Even within this thread we have that special segment of the population who won't bother to control their children because they think once a child's source of entertainment has died it is a reasonable free for all to let their kids act Ill behaved.

For shame that such incompetent individuals decide to procreate...

If you get one of those annoying, kicking your seat, kids behind you...wait until a snack/drink or meal is served, then drop your seat into recline really quick. Funny as heck and usually takes care of the problem!

I only had one for that very reason. It allowed me to be a better parent, as I was able to give and undivided attention to that child.
I like reading each and every one of your posts. You are a sensible, caring and considerate person and most of all a wise mother.
