Restaurant Banning “Loud” Kids Has Parents Outraged
Why are so many parents outraged over stuff like this? Nobody wants to hear your screaming baby or brat when they’re out at a movie or a restaurant.
When I was a kid, my parents did this thing called PARENTING, where if myself or my siblings began crying or throwing a temper tantrum, they’d carry us out of the establishment. My parents did not subject other adults to my or my siblings’ annoying kid behavior – why should today’s kids be any different?
Sorry, Christians, but parenthood does NOT make people more compassionate, giving, moral, or loving – as a matter of fact, parenthood seems to make some people even MORE selfish and demanding.

Three-Year-Old Boy Sets House On Fire And Kills Entire Family
Normally when I read of news stories of kids who die, I feel sorry for them. This one, this particular kid in this particular situation, not really, since the kid was an idiot.
He was playing with a lighter all day. Yes, I know he was only three, and I still don’t care about that. I’ve always had a hard time having sympathy for people (regardless of age) who bring about things like this based on their own stupid choices.
I do feel sorry for his mother and two siblings who died in this fire.
This is another time when I’m glad I never had kids.
When I was a kid, I was friends with a neighbor boy (who was a few years older than me) who was an arson bug. The kid loved setting fires. I knew it was wrong, even though I was under ten years of age.
