Seriously??? What a rude and condescending thing to say. So childfree women are unlucky? That women can't know love, happiness, personal satisfaction and fulfillment until they have a child? There are people who, either by choice or due to infertility, are childree and they live very fulfilling lives. Based on your statement, these people ought to stock up on Friskies unless they push out a kid. How dare speak about not judging others then write such a judgmental statement. People like you make me feel bad for society. In fact, statements like this make me not want to ever have children (if I am in fact able to) if they will have to share the planet with people as judgmental and narrow-minded as yourself. On topic, I agree with 99% of the posters here. Most of the meltdowns are handled just fine and I truly sympathize with the parents and help them if I can by offering a distraction. The couple of times I saw children misbehaving and the parents willfully ignoring it so as THEIR evening isn't ruined, I chalked it up to the decline of society.
