The responses to this thread are interesting.  Has anyone mentioned that maybe this "adult event" is a time that some of the other parents just want to be away from children for a moment?  Maybe, it isn't about the topics that are discussed or the location and/or time of the event, maybe it is just about the company.  Don't parents ask if other children will be present at the even before you take them?

One person stated that if people wanted her to find a sitter, that they should pay for it... why?  That makes no sense to me.  Did they make you have children?  Are they forcing you to go to the event?  If so, ok then.  If not, that statement was just silly.

now I can see how it could be annoying if someone brought a kid to an adult only outing, meaning we all knew it was no kids and they brought their kid anyway




this too.


Like i've stated. I cuss ...I luv to cuss *shrugs* but I do have some decurum.  (yes decurum)

When I was growing up I was not allowed to be around the elders when they had company because the conversation was not meant for my ears and kids repeat things its just not what I do.

I can't front...when my mom had me.  She took me to bars, juke joint's n'sh*t.  I remember being small enough that I couldn't see the top of the table...only under it.   Some older dude with a short afro, a beard and a cigarette that would dangle ever so dangerously off his lips that bobbed up and down when he spoke.  Kinda like that Chapelle character.  Antyways...he gave me the beer in the silver can with the blue bull on it.  I thought it was soda.  I remember sitting on folks laps while they were playing domino's or some sort of card game.   I honestly thought it was fun tho I have recollection of what they spoke on.  I actually enjoyed being there.  I was the only child there so I didn't have anyone to play with.
 
 
The same when my gramma had card parties.  They played the blues, laughed loudly and spoiled me rotten.  Luved it. They did kick me out tho if they got rowdy.
 
those memories are in my top 5.

A dinner party that was specified adult only and will probably end after your child's bedtime? Not an appropriate time to bring your child.

An outing where a group of adults are going zip lining at an adult course or doing a strenuous hike? Not a time to bring your kid.

Ladies' mimosa brunch? No.

Only bad parents put their wants (ie hanging with friends) before their children's needs (age/development appropriate activities).


You are obviously young and making many assumptions about parenting.  A parent having a child engage in certain activities does always mean they are putting their wants above the child's.  We often take my daughter to nice restaurants( Many of which will not seat before 8)  Does she miss her bedtime?  Yes.  But she gets a fine dining experience and as a result is an adventurous eater who  can comfortably order food in two languages and has pretty good table manners . 

Don't assume that someone's brought the kid just because the can't get a babysitter.



Funny, you don't seem to comprehend what I wrote. I listed specific examples of adult functions that are inappropriate for kids. It's rude and disrespectful to the host and other guests to come to the event with your child just because you want to. And it's nice of me to assume they brought the kid bc they didn't have a babysitter, otherwise I'd have to assume they were just being a dick and ignoring the requests of the host and the needs of their child because they're selfish.
