    MSNBC/Today Travel: How to handle kid-hating curmudgeons on airplanes

    I know there are loads of opinions (for/against) children on airplanes. IME, it's not so much the child I dislike, it's the parent's failure to, well, parent...

    Most know kids are going to make noise, etc....I get it...but when I see a parent do NOTHING about children doing things that bother others, it annoys me...applies on planes, public places, etc.

    I have a friend who just shrugged when her daughters went screaming like crazy up and down the aisles at Costco...:rolleyes:
