Good. I don't hang around Chuckie Cheese and drop f-bombs, and your small child doesn't need to annoy diners in restaurants meant for adults, either.

If you don't understand this, you are a crappy, indulgent parent.

New research supports letting babies self-soothe

That's always worked for me.

Absolutely this. There's a time a place for children. Mainly back at home. But if you insist on bringing them out in public, either make sure they're well behaved, or restrict yourself to places where loud obnoxious children are accepted by all. There are plenty of family restaurants, parks, playgrounds, etc that you can take your spawn without bothering others. Do so.

I recently suggested to a friend that all babies be emissions tested, and the ones that are too loud or annoying get mufflers.

I was out to lunch and a baby there was, I swear, honking. I'm generally pretty tolerant of crying babies, but this thing was half-baby, half-megaphone-duck.

Subtard is subtarded.

TFA talks about night crying and not restaurants. Most parents know this already, so does that make the subtard more tarded than most?

How does letting your child self-soothe at night have anything to do with keeping babies out of restaurants??

Message to the OP: Since you seemed more intent on trying to complain about kids in restaurants than focusing on reading comprehension, I'll put it simply for you. In no way does the article suggest that you should just let your child scream and cry during the day when everyone's awake. Rather, when putting them down, you should let them try and fall asleep on their own.

Now, if parents are trying to put their child to sleep in a restaurant, that's another problem...

Uh, neither of my protohumans have ever caused any interest from other patrons no matter where I take them. Maybe it's not the kids, it's the parents.

Not runnninig to your baby to give it attention every time it cries is exactly how you should parent. I guess subs is one of those "precious snowflakes" that thinks otherwise

AMEN! The worst, for me, is the repeated-name thing...I was at a work party over the holidays and found out that one of my coworker's parenting methods is to repeat the kid's name about 20 times until the kid got bored and went to do something else. I spent the drive home thinking seriously that I should have bought her a muzzle for the gift exchange.

I get it. Very, very occasionally, we take our 1- and 3-year-old out to dinner. The older one is well-behaved, and the younger one can keep it together most of the time. Once in a while, though, he can't sit still, or he's upset about something, or he starts making some noise. I pay attention to what they're both doing, and the moment one of them does something that I know is disturbing those around me, I pick him up and we leave. If he can calm down, we'll go back in. If it happens twice, we wait outside until everyone else is done.

I understand where you're coming from. The parents who simply ignore the problem and ruin everyone's night out really piss me off, too.

If your spawn has any modicum of intelligence they'll look at you and neuter themselves to comply with the Geneva Convention. If not then they'll probably be dumb enough to top themselves before they breed, granted 12 yrs isn't much of a window, but we can hope.

Good for you. No way I could take my 5 year old or infant to a fancy restaurant without them misbehaving - so i don't.

maybe it's me, or maybe kids are just different.

although i don't really see what any of this has to do with the article
 
2013-01-05 07:36:30 PM  
My progenitors, following to the letter, allowed my sibling to cry for about a day. The kid still ain't right.

No. What you're describing is misbehaving. The fact that you don't see it as such explains the source of the issue. Infants may be a bit of an issue, but by 5, a child should definitely know how to behave in public. You hold the responsibility of teaching this.
 
2013-01-05 07:40:19 PM  
My daughter has visited some pretty nice restaurants with me -  she is 2 and a half years old. If she acts uo, i simply pick her up, pay the bill and leave so as not to disturb the other patrons of the establishment. At the same time, i try to explain to her, that she needs to not act that way, and the more she does it, the less we will go out to eat.  Seems to be working well, we've gone to many places recently, and she has behaved herself in such a way that makes me proud to take her!  All about parenting, and being there for your child when she needs you to be, and even when she doesnt need you to.

Just wish that the ex had that same approach.....
 
2013-01-05 07:42:41 PM  
+1 self-soothing. You can't let it go on for too long, but you gotta give 'em a chance to cry it out.

About wee babies and the childrens out and about in public - show a little compassion you fark-tards. Someone birthed you and had to put up with your crap too.
 
2013-01-05 07:46:52 PM  
If you're too lazy to get up, talk to your child and soothe him for a few minutes at night then you should shouldn't have had children. Neglecting their cries is just that....neglect. It teaches them that they are unloved and alone. Take a scared child into bed with you or sit with them by their bed. They will be well adjusted and happy. I raised three sons and they never had to lay in bed alone and cry themselves to sleep.

Thank you. You are obviously a parent who knows their children's limits and personalities and works to be a responsible parent in public. I wish I saw more parents like you instead of the numerous ones who give children and parents a bad public image.

As a quid pro quo, grown ups should not assume that all children are loud, annoying brats. Those who are not generally prefer, like you, to be in brat free zones.

you think? i didn't actually describe any particular behaviour now did i? as it were, i think my 5 year old does behave appropriately in public - and he probably is ready for a fancy restaurant but the other one sure isn't so we don't go out to eat with them unless it's early at a kid-friendly place. i don't really see the problem with that position - you just looking to bicker on the internet?

False comparison. Someone else making an assumption doesn't harm you or your experience at all. It's just a thought. Are you a mind reader or something? Does hearing all those adults making assumptions in their heads give you a headache while you're out with a kid in public?

You're in a booth with your kid. I'm in the next booth. There I am assuming your kid is going to be a loud annoying brat. I'm thinking it as hard as I can. I can't keep my mind off of assumptions about how bad your child is going to be.

How are you affected by this?

I've noticed that they are almost tolerable if the mom is hot, has traces of body glitter and no wedding ring - oh, and of course nice titties.  If she's a big fat pig, the kid automatically becomes a nuisance.

I have 2 kids, 6 and 5. I agree, cannot stand parents who let their kids scream or run around non-kid oriented restaurants. If mine start to act up, we talk to them, if that doesn't work, we leave. Or I'll bring the offending child outside until they calm down.

1) I was picked up and rocked back to sleep as an infant. Brother was left in the crib and patted until he shut up. He can sleep anywhere, while I have to ride the Ambien/Benadryl train.

2) Both of us spent a lot of time walking laps around restaurants when we started acting up. Makes for cooperative kids in the winter.

No, I don't know what you meant. You made two conflicting statements. You're either going to have to explain one away or just move on. We cannot have a rational conversation at this rate.
 
2013-01-05 08:21:17 PM  
In a separate study published online in Pediatrics in September, Australian scientists reported that letting tots cry it out won't harm them emotionally or damage their relationship with their parents.

It'll just drive the parents and the neighbors insane and homicidal.

An infant's screaming cry has got to be the most annoying sound any creature in nature can make. It makes scraping your fingernails down a chalkboard seem like a song bird's chirp. While most animal infants from birth know when to keep quiet to avoid having something big and nasty follow their cries and snap them up as a snack, human kids scream to alert the neighborhood that lunch is ready.

Not too good of a survival mechanism, if you ask me.
