Surely you don't expect a modern parent to actually discipline their child. It might hurt their self esteem.



I love the statement from parents to justify their childrens actions as "they're just kids being kids". Translate as so what if they're being disruptive. I've also heard parents tell campground owners that they'll never survive because they don't cater to families with children.

I prefer the quieter campgrounds. I go camping for quiet relaxation.

Yes and I have ask a few if they had parent lessons.But some of them are as bad as the kids.
Here is one for you. I went to a paper box at a resort .biggrin.gif A woman wanted me to hold the box open for her and another lady to get a paper.Now this women was there in I am guessing a 38 foot class A trying to steal a paper from a guy that got up at 2 AM to fill it and make a dime.I did tell her what I thought and if she did`t like it go tell the owners or police.I guess I scared the other woman off as I don`t think she even bought a paper.And people like that have kids. mad.gif

My wife and I are both in our mid 50's and agree with most of the posts about kids (and barking dogs) ruining a campground experience. When we look into booking sites at different CG's that we have never been to, we only will do so at places that have websites with info and pictures of the facilities. Campgrounds that promote "family" aka kids amenities such as pools and playgrounds etc. will have more four-footers or less running around. We are grandparents ourselves, but if we want to be around young ins playing and running and stuff, we will just go to our kid/grandkids house. The flip side of this conversation though is everyone is quick to critize kids and families today with kids sitting around eating potato chips playing video games all day long. When we are camping and see a young family with their kids enjoying the outdoors as much as we are and they are respectful to fellow campers, we both think its great that the parents are taking the time to open the joys of camping to there young minds and applaud them for it

That is the key word.RESPECTFUL TO OTHER CAMPERS.I am with you liking to see kids off the couch.We are in a club that has a lot of kids but they know how to be around other people.Some may be brats at home but never have seen them do any thing out of the way when we camp with them. smile.gif

Just stayed at a 16+ campground in,of all places< Intercourse PA. Never had a better experience as far as it being quiet and well kept. There was nothing kinky or anything but it was very relaxing. Would recommend it to anyone.

This thread has been going on for almost 4 years. It all started when an elementry school teacher was considering purchasing a pop up and wondering if it was possible to leave the sight and sounds of children behind at her day job. We of course took the topic and ran with it, from childrens behavior, parent behavior, grandparent behavior, restuarants, planes, busses and of course the occasional "clothing optional" story. I wonder did she ever buy that pop up? and did she find what she was seeking? Inquiring minds...you know.

I sure hope someday I have the pleasure of meeting you, who knows maybe in an upscale resturant with my granddaughter. I am a new grandfather and you know what I believe parents have the right to take their kids anywhere they want. I agree that it can be anoying but I'm sure you as well as I can do some things that are pretty anoying as well. Kids are a fact of life and if I want to go to an upscale resturant with my granddaughter I sure as you know what will.

Again just my opinion,

I am sorry Rodman but I don't agree with you, there are places thatís reasonable to take children and other that are reserved for adults.
It is not a matter of loving or hating children it is more matter of invading each oneís freedom in order to have a nice evening at the restaurant without children running around or screaming or behaving as children at the table.
When you are going to spend a few hundred dollars for a specific evening and I don't think it is fair having children disturbing the place..
If I may provide a suggestion, bring them to McDonald.
