The Battle Is Heating Up

I knew I wasn't the only one. Life | Broadsheet: "Listen, if you're a parent now, your child doesn't have to be the center of everyone else's universe too. Get a babysitter if you want to go out to a bar, or buy a bottle of wine and invite your friends over, just stop imposing your lifestyle on the rest of us in our sanctuary of choice. You made the decision to have a child and now, like a responsible adult and parent, you have to change your lifestyle as well. I've spoken to some courteous parents who agree with this and they get a sitter when they go out because they want some time with adults, not kids. Anyways, I'm sick of kids and strollers in bars, and so are a lot of other people. If you can't find a sitter and have to go out with your child, for the love of god, go to a family restaurant like Two Boots or the Tea Lounge, for I declare today and all future Sundays, Stroller Free.'"
I like kids, but they don't belong in bars or casinos and certainly not in movie theatres because you didn't make other arrangements. Parents should spend quality time with their children, that doesn't mean when I am in an adult type venue that I should have to also. Especially if they behave inappropriately.
