My post yesterday about modern-day parenting has sparked quite a few comments. I just want to make one thing very clear (because people have misunderstood me in the past): I don't dislike children. I don't hate people for choosing to be parents. It actually seldomly happens that kids annoy me, or that I see a kid misbehaving in public.

Kids will be kids. Kids are noisy and energetic -- let them play. I don't believe kids should always sit still and be quiet. Sure, there are environments where not bothering people is important (confined spaces such as public transport), but kids shouting in the park while playing around is to be considered completely normal.
