We've only ever gotten compliments on our children. They've been traveling since they were babies so they know the drill and we always come prepared with treats and games.

Flying with very small children is very challenging. My little boy (now two and a half) is generally well behaved, and I've flown with him MANY times. He's almost always flown like a champ, but once, when he was 18 months old, we were flying from Kansas to Oregon, and for whatever reason, he'd just had enough. Because he was under age two, he was riding on my lap, so I spent three hours trying to contain a whirling dervish. He kicked, he climbed, he cried. I worked so hard to keep his feet away from the seat in front of us and off the woman sitting next to me, and I can't tell you how many times I apologized. Everyone was very nice, but I was terrified the whole time that someone was going to get nasty with me, even though I was doing everything I could do to keep him from bothering anyone. You may say I should have bought him his own seat, but that would have been an extra $300. I will say that I waited to fly again until he was over 2, so my husband and I had no choice but to buy him his own seat. I took a carseat, strapped him in, and enjoyed the ride.

i've commented on this before, but you seem to have a warped view of traveling with children., first, the pictures are all of darling children behaving on an airplane..i think in all of the comments, the only one that was a match was the "is your kid a robot" which was inappropriate. a lot of the others were as well, but a couple of them weren't. like shouldn't your kid have it's own seat? or nice way to spend the last part of our anniversary trip. it's one thing if parents are trying to control their children, but more times than not parents have given up,or are ignoring their children.. just b/c people aren't thrilled to get kicked for 4 hours by a child on a flight, doesn't make them child-haters,or evil. i think parents need to stop expecting the entire world to stop for their kids, and teach them manners, and respect. { i know many kids are great, or normal and get fussy or tired, or their ears pop and hurt, i also know many are too little, and some have other issues, and i just want to say it's really not about the kid as much as it is the parent. the checked out parents, or the ones who expect everyone to just go along with it and don't even try to handle the situation are the ones this is directed towards, and unfortunately they appear to be the majority in these situations}
