Re: Screaming kids in concerts

My son grew up to a whole variety of live music, from classical, swing, rock, indie, jazz, pop etc Sometimes, he wasn't in the mood for being 'grown up' so we left and did other things, maybe hide and seek or other such games but well away from the venue and either went back when my son felt ready or not at all, but would never have left him to disturb other people or to be unhappy himself in such a case, going to school or doctors/dentists etc was a source of unpleasentness not so easily avoided of course :-)

However, from being around 4 years old, he was generally very happy to enjoy the music the majority of the time with no problems to other users (despite their earlier looks of askance that a child was in the building :-)), and this being a child diagnosed with AHHD, after 6 years of arguments from my side and support from a couple of teachers, this was eventually withdrawn but that is a whole other story!

I learnt most of my parental skills from my grandmother so maybe this is partly a generation thing as I can be quite old fashioned in some respects, but I have also been shocked several times in UK, Switzerland and other places by what appears to me as lazy parenting.
