The sad thing is that people create drama in their own lives by making various choices and then expecting others to fix the problems they create with those choices.

You aren't able to amuse your children without electronic babysitters? My point is made.

Wrong. When I fly I generally NEED to be there. It's called making a living. It's not a trip to Disney or a trip to visit the grandparents. If I wasn't on the plane, I wouldn't have a job. That is a need.

Then the mother failed. Try first class, far less children, although when they are there they are usually spoiled rotten hellions.

The age of 3-4 was mentioned in an early post. Old enough to understand "inside voices."

Best article ever about sedating children on flights.....this woman deserves an award!

Why I drug my children on airplanes: We all know the hell of bawling toddlers on flights. But some mums have found a controversial solution... | Mail Online

ok, I didn't read the ages when I posted yesterday. People mention the ear concerns: that is real, but I am betting these kids need someone else to tell them to quiet down. Would I say something? I am a big chicken so I don't know, but I would applaud anyone who did. The ear problem isn't going to be the entire flight and if a child is 3 or over he/she would certainly have said something about their ears hurting.

Since there are so many incompetent parents out there I am sure they would appreciate your advice.
Why are they in pain? Did I miss somewhere that said these children were stabbed, beaten, or had tripped and broke something? My understanding is these were just kids being loud because they were raised poorly.
