Note: Dear Parents, I request not to hate me after reading this article.
“Should parents with kids be prohibited from café’s? I love kids, but sometimes I love myself more.”
Recently kids are the obstacles behind my concentration issues. Their sound sucks all my concentration power out of my body and mind. This is so not good for my health and work. Is the power even effective everywhere and every time? Nope. If that were the case, I would not be who I am right now. However, the presence of their screams “ loud noise”, repeating the same sentence or word or words in café’s that I go to be inspired and concentrate has definitely been very powerful to get me mad, resulting with me not being able to implement what I was planning to do in the end. I am very sad and of course furious about it.
OMG, how can I be so selfish complaining about kids? Wrong, how could you be so selfish? How could you be so ignorant about other’s space? I am not complaining to you about your kid’s screaming. It’s a complaint about you who brings their loud kids to café’s and does not respect the surroundings, when you know and have been through the phase of working and studying in café’s too. Why do you think people go to Café’s with books, laptops and notes? Isn’t it too obvious, to get their work done: studying, writing or digging ideas? All these tasks need concentration to get done and concentration is definitely difficult to attain when someone is screaming or babbling like crazy around you. You should know this. You have worked all your life till now, and have become parents. I am also sure you cannot concentrate on your work at home or somewhere else when your kids are screaming. Right? So, how could you expect us to be able to do it? I or we are not being able to do our work in café’s because of you bringing your kids who yell. BTW, kids even don’t drink coffee to be in café’s first of all.
I would be the most stupid and self-centered person if I were complaining about kids screaming in the park. But I am not; I am talking specifically about café’s. I adore kids and respect parenthood, and I feel parents should have the same corresponding feeling; respect the people around them. Please do not be ignorant. Public gets mad at you, not at your kids when the kids start screaming. I do not know how hard it is to take care of kids since I am not a mother yet. Anyhow in the future, if I become a mother, I will definitely respect people around me and give them their space even if I love my kids to death.
P.S. Believe it or not, you would feel the same if you were in my place.
