Yeah. People have lost their freaking minds, IMO. Or I should probably say parents have. Time for one of my DS stories. One time I went to JCPenney to pick up or return something or the other. I was alone. There was some chick in line in front of me with her kid, who was probably about four. That kid was literally climbing on the four-plus foot high counter. So clearly, Mom must have put the kid up there. No three foot high kid can climb a smooth four foot surface without help. Anyway. The little rotten kid is climbing all over the place, scrambling paperwork and getting into all sorts of other mischief. My face must have showed my disgust. So Clueless Mom turns to me and says, "You'd understand, if you had kids." I said, "I do have a kid." I didn't say, "There is no way in hell he'd be allowed to climb all over the counter. He wouldn't even think of behaving that way in public, because I am raising him better than that." Not all kids are created/raised equal, the same as not all child-free by choice people have evolved/are created equal. Some kids are "good" whatever that means; some are "bad" whatever that means. Same deal with adults. I don't think anyone should be judged by their label or category. That said, given our society's current propensity for giving ill-behaved (parents and their) kids a free pass, if I were a dance teacher, I'd be leery of accepting young children as students. Just sayin.
