I catch a lot of shit from my friends for not really liking kids. I mean, I like them just fine if they are related to me or are the kids of close friends. But, in general, kids don't do much for me. Even someone as hard-hearted as me had an emotional reaction to this video. In it, a young 8 month old baby - deaf from birth - has a cochlear implant inserted and can hear for the first time. His reaction when he hears his Mother's voice for the first time is pretty amazing. Great video.
That was very cool, Dave! Thanks for sharing!
For the record, by and large, I don't have much use for most kids outside of relatives either. Probably because most parents don't provide any discipline or instruction to them and they tend to misbehave badly.
The discipline thing is a part of it, I guess. I used to fly a lot and kids on planes are a freakin' nightmare!
I agree with you wholeheartedly! My colleague makes it a point, also, when we go to lunch at a restaurant to ask for the "no screaming kids" section for seating.
I should try that.
