Sorry about the art thing but this keeps popping up on my screen and it's annoying.
the following is a quote from me-
"its just creepy and the real controversy is why parents should be aloud to take their screaming children anywhere. Unlike them some of us haven't become deaf to the piercing wail."
it seems that there are some people who think there is an issue here. Yeah, understand kids crying, child abuse and it probably is. People hate the photographer but as someone else said, what about the parents. The parents of these children obviously consented to let them cry. Its interesting how people ignore the physiological ramifications of what is done to people at young ages. I know a fellow who rolled off a changing table as a baby and to this day has a fear of heights (that includes high places in video games too, crazy). So in a couple of years when mommy and daddy take these kids to get Christmas photos and they throw a tantrum because they have a deep seeded fear of photos they're going to forget what they did and yell at the kid.
but seriously I don't care. There are so many bad parents today that that generation is going to be screwed up. The other day I saw a kid in a car alone outside of burgerking while mom was inside eating. I wondered for a minute what would happen if I took the kid. Would it teach the mom a lesson or would everyone think I was insane and creepy?
doesn't matter either because I'd rather avoid the ear bleeding screams of children. They're everywhere and people complain about loud music or people talking too loud on there cellphones. Everyone is too afraid to complain about a crying child, to tell the mom to leave the store or go outside. Its like kids have a magic bubble over them where everyone is too afraid to interfere even if it's in everyone's best interest.
