I have to say that I am always amazed at how poorly people educate their kids today. I get so many comments on my son (favorable), that it leads me to believe that most parents just dono't put any effort into discipline. I agree that kids that do not know how to behave should be kept out of the adult world. I agree that there are places, although few, that kids, no matter how well behaved should not be brought to and, I understand why a bachlor would want to have nice and fragile things around his house, and would worry about a kid breaking them. that said - I think that having little kids is one of those things like being young, or being old, or moving house etc - you may be inconvenineced by somebody's kids, slightly, but you were a kid once, you may have kids once, and you need to accept this as part of being a member of a society.
