    Two-year-old Natalie is adorable. But like all toddlers, she sometimes can be a handful.
    When she threw a tantrum as her family boarded a recent JetBlue flight, her parents did their best to calm her down.

    "Just some consideration, a little bit of humanity in the situation was really all I was looking for. Apparently, that doesn't exist," said Dr. Colette Vieau, Natalie's mother.
    Vieau and her husband were trying to fly back to Boston from Turks and Caicos on Feb. 18 with Natalie and her 3-year-old sister, Cecilia.
    When Natalie refused to sit down, her parents eventually got her seat belt fastened and held her in place.
    But the Rhode Island famliy was kicked off the flight anyway.

    Maybe the considerate thing WAS taking the child off the plane if the tantrum was getting out of hand.

    With stories like this, I always fligure there are two sides...
