If this thread had started off about the specific subject of whether or not it's acceptable to medicate kids on planes so that they don't disturb other passengers, I probably wouldn't have bothered posting, no. As it was, this thread was about annoying children on planes...

So despite not knowing anything about the subject, you "don't really object" to kids being given sleeping tablets? I see. Why comment at all? This is a debating forum, if you comment, you invite replies.
Did you deliberately miss my point? I only said anything about sleeping tablets because Suzanathema raised the subject in a direct reply to me. If this thread was all about medicating children, fine patronise me for talking about a subject I know nothing about, but as it is, this issue is only part of the discusson on this thread and I didn't involve myself in the debate of whether or not it is ethical to medicate children. I tried to avoid discussing this as I know nothing about it
I don't really object because frankly I doubt it's as terrible as what you're making out. However as I said previously I would research further on the subject if it ever actually became relevant to my circumstances, and obviously if I discovered there were legitimate issues I wouldn't medicate my children or any children I was looking after.

Please cut the "you said this, she said that" and petty insults. Debate has been healthy up to now
Please note that anything off-topic will be binned.
