it ALSO involves children and each and every one of us is 'guilty' of having been one ..


The child is NOT the "guilty" party -- it's the parents.

I once had to endure over 3 hours of sitting in front of a 4 or 5 year old who spent most of the time either opening and slamming shut the traytable OR kicking the back of my seat. I politely asked his mother if it were possible to stop him from doing that and she looked up from her book, over at him and said "[Name], stop kicking the seat". Five minutes later it started again. And she never said another word to [Name] about it.

(The plan was full so I couldn't ask to change seats.)
