Idiot! it was a scenario made up for your benefit.
I am married and have been for 18 years. My children are 21 and 17 repectively. Both are intelligent and well rounded. Both were up past 8pm a time or two in thier childhood years.
You simply cannot see past your own little world. It's obvious from all your answers and skating the issue that you have no children. When you do you will realize how incredibly stupid and shortsighted your comments were about this subject. There are no simple or cut and dried answers to raising children. It's not about priorities it's about REALITY.
There are a hundred circumstances that don't fit into your white bread little world. You have no right to belittle these parents because they choose to raise their children differently than you would.

I see, so in the end what you are saying is that you raised two kids responsibly and made sure they were in bed at bedtime for 21and 17 years, respectively, except for a time or two.
Well HELLO, that's what i have been saying all along. Are you too thick to see that? My kids have of course missed their bedtimes from time to time. But its usually been when we've been out at parties or events and come home near or slightly past their bedtimes. Not that we've decided to take them OUT for an event at or past their bedtime. Just because we wanted to see a movie, for chrissakes.
Maybe the problem is that YOU haven't had a young child in over 12 years and don't see the parents toting their very young kids around at all hours of the night as a REGULAR matter of course.
For all i know, this 'i am really a responsible parent of two grown children' is a new scenario of yours. There is no reason to take a young child to the movies at or past their bedtime. Children have needs, one need is to be secure. Dragging them around town to loud movies at bedtime because YOU or your older child wants to is NOT meeting their needs. There is no NEED to go to a night movie. There are matinees, there are movie rental stores, there are old fashioned things like playing games and actually interacting with your children.
Clearly, you like to argue for arguing sake.
Or frankly, you are a liar.
Not sure which or whether its both, but what do i care. You have to live with the monsters you raise.

OK let's try this one more time.

I don't have any monsters I have 2 very well rounded kind couteous surprisingly well adjusted young adults.

I am not arguing for arguings sake nor am I lying about anything.

What does NOT having a toddler in 12 years have to do with observing other parents?

You still have missed the point when you keep going back to the ridiculous matinee explanation. You still don't seem to understand that some people live on different schedules than a typical 8-5 workaday existance.

People who work off shifts have little to no opportunity to take their children to a matinee.

No one said these people shouold do this ALL the time. the original statement you made was : "Tigerlili, you want to treat your three year old to a movie and you work to seven pm?
Take the child to the movies on the weekend. Problem solved.
There is no reason to take a toddler to the movies at night. Other than irresponsible parenting, that is."

Well there ARE other reasons to take a toddler to the movies at night. You keep mistaking your perfect world with the reality of other parents.

And please pray tell how am I "not meeting my toddlers needs" if I take him/her to a nite movie once in a while?

Your comments are consistantly shortsighted and unyielding. You cannot grasp the simple concept that others live a different life than you. That does not mean they are doing their children harm.

You are hopelessly clinging to a pigheaded argument. Holysmokes and formerly of Ronkonkoma clearly understand the point I am making, you either are too dense to understand it or you are being deliberately obtuse because you cannot defend your inaccurate comments.

Either way, I'm done.

So tired- Your statement "There is no reason to take a toddler to an 8 pm movie" is of your opinion but not everyone elses. All LRJB is trying to say is that we all don't work 8-5 jobs Mon-Fri with holidays off. Some of us work odd shifts (such as the night shift) and work in an institution that does not close for holidays. Some people that work in these institutions are single parents. Life is not 100% perfect for them. Matinees are not easy for them. Who are you that you are such an expert on raising children? When you publish your book, let me know. I would like a copy. Otherwise, how other people raise their children is none of your business, and you have no right to judge them.

Oh yeah, and FYI LRJB has not raised "monsters". I have never met his daughter, but his son is very respectful. And yes, they are 21 and 17. As I said, you have no right to judge! Walk in someone else's shoes, then voice your opinion!

LRJB, this argument you have going on with So Tired reminds me of a bit from the movie "Big Trouble", quite a funny movie if you havent seen it.

A radio announcer states on the radio that Florida Gator fans never have the courage to call after the Gators lose.

The phone rings.

The announcer says you're on sports talk.

the caller says you said gators fans are too chicken to call when the gators lose. So I'm calling.

The radio announcer says: Yeah what do you want to talk about?

The guy: well, I'm calling.

announcer: So.

The guy: You said gators fans are too chicken to call. I'm calling.

announcer: but what are you calling about.

The guy: You said gators fans were to chicken to call so I'm calling......

and so it goes.

Thanks smokes.

It's kind of a double entendre.

I love Grateful Dead,

but that line always seemed to me to have a little "extra" meaning.

Of coarse most of my friends that are Garteful Dead fans are also non-Christians and think I'm nuts, but that's nothing new....LOL

How horrible! That is utterly disgusting. I can't believe that they are so dumb as to show that! What the hell?! How retarded are these people? I mean, if she would have eaten the baby after giving birth to it then it would have been alright. But seriously! That's just gross.

NO, there wasn't any legal actions, and ANY lawyer that would take on something like this would be a complete idiot.
