“How about complimentary sedatives for the passengers? Drug everyone else BUT the kids?”
“We have been there… It is hard taking kids on an airplane. I apolagized to a person when complained about kids kicking the seat. But another parent (unknown to me) got into a fight and cried… “You don’t have any kids!”
“yeah don’t do benadryl especially if your a parent giving it to your kid. It isn’t physically addicting, but mentally unstable people that grow up taking any kind of drug get used to it. Weed is alright, but people that recreationally use benadryl DIE. It ****s you up.”
“i’d sooner listen to my kid scream then give drugs to them to keep them “calm” during travel! they are restless cuz they are friggin bored with tons of sweaty, smelly people all around them! what do you expect! Bring a book, gameboy,personal dvd player with fav. movies. that is better then drugging your kid!”
“i can see why people think this is a bad idea, but it does not hurt the kid unless he/she is allergic. Which the parent would know if he/she is. it may not look great form other people’s p.o.v. but at least you kid is not annoying other people.”
“I agree drug loud annoying kids, should use heroin instead of benadryl. Nothing worse than a loud crying kid on a 10h flight when you want to get some rest & peace. I also agree that there should be family sections on board the airplane don the back, sound sealed compartment.”
“ARE YOU KIDDING? You are worried about Benadryl when the state is drugging kids on KILLER PSYCH MEDS SUCH AS RITALIN, PROZAC, ETC? Those drugs KILL children! Get your priorities STRAIGHT, dude!”
And so it goes!
