    To a restaurant 6 nights in a row? I haven't ever read that...family events, yes...6 nights in a row, no. At a non child friendly event every night, no. It's a shame the member who I am thinking of who is out frequently at social gatherings isn't around to weigh in. Given how much of a social butterfly she is I'm going to hazard a guess she would not take ipads for her kids to be on. But I am only guessing, of course.
    Besides, I was saying what I would do in that situation, not what everyone should do. I was pointing out that no one expects kids to be sitting well behaved in a non kid friendly restaurant six nights a row.
    I could be wrong, but your posts come across like you are trying to make me say it's okay for people to give their kids devices...but I've never said it's not okay. I've said it's something we chose not to do, because we decided very early on that it wasn't something we would do. Why is it bothering you so much?

    Yep, 6 nights in a row to various functions at restaurants in the week before xmas. Mostly extended family, some for work. Late nigts all week & grumpy kids. We are 100% expected to be there,with the kids. So we bring the Ipads. I'm OK with that I see not bringing kids is an option for some people. It isn't for us,but is for others. Whatever works,I say.

    Oh don't get me wrong, I believe you that you had 6 nights out in a row close to Christmas. What I don't believe is that is that this situation is normal for 'plenty of bh members due to cultural reasons.' I don't believe that there is any culture that expects kids to sit and socialise at non-kid friendly events 6 nights in a row. Christmas time can get crazy with social events. I can see how you can get booked up 6 nights in a row. But I imagine Christmas time is the only time this happens for you (you don't have to answer, btw).
    When I replied to you, it was simply to point out that those not using ipads when out aren't expecting their kids to sit in a restaurant and behave until 10pm 6 nights in a row. You did what worked for you, which is great

    I said it would make them 'feel' like an outcast, not actually be one!

    What bothers me - for someone who has 'never said it's not ok' you are talking (via your screen) a lot about how your own low-screen way is tops... While interrogating others stories on why they do chose to use Screens for their kids.

    No I'm not.

    And VP...who's the one interrogating? You've posted in this thread 21 times. Other people said no screen time when out for them and you didn't feel the need to take it further, but you have felt the need to quote me 5 times and ask me questions/call me out on things, even when I wasn't responding to you. Most of my posts in here are in response to you quoting me. I have tried to write my responses in a non-judgemental way. I'm sorry if I haven't portrayed that well...most likely because I was on my phone and I try to keep my answers more to the point. If you don't want me to respond to you then STOP quoting me. Amazingly, 7 pages in when I first posted in this thread, I was responding to the OP, not you. You actually didn't have to quote me at all, and had you not kept quoting me I probably wouldn't have even came back to this thread...you know, given it took until 7 pages in before I even responded. So, how about you leave me alone, hey? Don't like me then please feel free to use the ignore button.

    I'm confused... Did you edit your post to add everything after the first line because no-one had responded and you wanted to solicit a response?

    Sigh. No. My youngest called out for me so I hit post, went to sort out my child, and then came back and edited to finish off.

    Seriously VP, just leave me alone okay.
