You were inconvenienced for a few hours and this woman who you don't know is a total failure?
I wonder if you will think of yourself as a total failure when this happens to you.

Hey, she wasn't a total failure. But, she could've done a little more research about kids on aircraft. Getting on the forum would have been a great start.

So this was an older kid? I thought baby, from your description. Like I said, my kid was a great traveler, even as an infant, but babies have ear issues. If my child, as a toddler, was annoying people, I always took her away. I never wanted to be "that parent."

Oh, babies...
Yeah, maybe best if they're sleeping.
And, they can't chew gum, so that's out of the question.
Yeah, that's a part of "all things considered"
That would be relatively difficult to control.

Well I'm not sure of what this guy is talking about, because he says crying and screaming and then talking non-stop. If they're talking non-stop they're obviously not infants or toddlers. When my daughter was a baby I gave her a bottle during take off and landing. I tried!

I get what you're saying, but Ear Barotrauma is an actual condition that can be proven.

I get the descent and you can't control kids all the time, just try and do better please for the consideration of the rest of us. Thank you for listening to the PSA.
If the kid is allowed to act like a wild banshee, then I'd speak to them directly.

No, I wouldn't ask the parents to do anything. I would tell them or I would tell the kid to be quite (if they were a little older).

Yes, they do. They can't allow their children to disturb the whole plane....they run the risk of being removed from the flight. I can understand a baby or young toddler crying, but any child over the age of 4 is old enough to understand that they need to sit quietly, not kick the seat in front of them and not whine like Calliou.

It's a tricky issue as some parents really seem to lack the awareness of how their kids drive other people insane.

On the other hand, I flew to Dubai once and there was a lone mother with 5 kids under 7 years old. I didn't ask if they were all hers but she was a nervous wreck. Myself and an older lady did our best to comfort and entertain the younger ones. I quite enjoyed it.

Sometimes it's important to reach out and lend a hand rather than pitch a fit. We flew a lot when I was a kid and have no doubt that I would have driven people nuts with my inability to sit still.

Also, cabin air pressure can be quite painful on the ears of young kids.

Some lib would make sure you were charged with child abuse and lose custody of your child.
