I cannot believe people are sticking up for the parents of the 3 month old child in the Colorado theater.
First, if you aren't a parent, sorry you can't comment. I don't care how many neices and nephews or God children you have. It is not the same as being a parent. Read this blog. I have COMPLETELY changed since having my child. There are hundreds of things you say you will do before you have a child that you change your mind about. Sorry.
I try SO hard not to judge other parents. I see a kid screaming in Target and I try to say to myself there are a million things that could be going on. Today, at the library when there were parents with their eyes closed. I judged. That's not ok. You don't bring your kids some where and take a nap. I don't care how tired you are. Because you know what? I'm TIRED. I don't nap when I'm in my own home. I sure as heck don't nap when my child is playing with other children.
You bring your 3 month old to a midnight showing of a PG-13 rated movie it is wrong.
I've seen the argument that the parents needed a break.
Do you know how expensive movies are? I honestly don't, because guess what, we don't go to movies because they are too expensive! If you needed a break THAT badly use the money to pay for a sitter and go some where free.
I have seen the argument that the baby would just sleep through it. My child has never been a good sleeper. I don't know many 3 month olds that sleep through the night in a loud movie theater. We have left restaurants because the mariachi band was too loud.
Is hearing violence car crashes, guns, and explosions good for a child's development? I don't think so.
I'm not in any way blaming the parents for their child getting injured. What happened is horrific and my heart really is broken for all the families of those lives lost. I just keep picturing Hubby and I being in that theater or Chase when he is 13 or older (because it is pg-13 just sayin) being in that theater. So so scary.
This is the first time I have heard of an infant being brought to a late night violent movie. That is what I am commenting on.
