I am amazed how unaware parents are of their children kicking the seats in front of them. I have experienced one thing worse than having my seat kicked...a parent playing patty-cakes on the try table. After about 20 minutes I suggested they try another game. Flying with restless children is always trying for parents and those around them.
Both of those are hilarious!
I guess the bonus side of having higher fares is that pretty soon not nearly so many families will be able to afford to travel by air, with their precious little ones. The only ones who will be able to take the family will be the frequent flyers with tons of miles, or the wealthy.
Unfortunately, the lack of discipline on the parents' part is always to blame for the child's behaviour. But then, how can one expect a child to have any manners or self respect, when most parents have none themselves. It is extremely rare these days to be on an aircraft and see a well-behaved child.
