BUT is it not wrong of the mother to at least not speak with the mother first rathe than going straight to the manager? Would she really have for the same if it were a whinging toddler?? I don't think so
I don't geddit really. I tut at all the nattering and sweet unwrapping when the trailers are on but when the film gets going I'm tuned into that and tbh, it is so farking loud I don't think I could hear other people unless I was REALLY listening or unless it was a boring arty fiml where you have to watch the colour red with no sound for 35 minutes, in which case, I'd probably start a popcorn fight myself!
I am 50/50 on this one, I would not take my son(autism) to a movie that was new release and overly crowded. I would of removed him I have spent many a movie sat with my son outside the door while kids are watching the movie inside. Also the cost of the movie for others is huge. Yes I want people to be tolerant but people pay alot and this is valuable quality time together. I tend to take my children when it is quiet and pay for seats at the last minute so I can ask for seats away from others. I suppose I want to treat people with the same respect as I want them to treat myself and son.
I got a feeling this was just a post to cause a row really. Just got my goat when they were actually starting to blame the mum for taking him there. Who knows what triggered it off. oohh real life stinks sometimes
DS2 manages fine at the cinema, but only once the curtains go up. If the curtain are down when we go in he has a meltdown, screams to leave and scrambles on the floor. Once the film on though, different child! If he were to continue with the meltdown though, I would remove him. Shame the family got kicked out, maybe their child would have calmed down once the film started?
Yes my DS has been fine at cinema. I am just choosy in what we see and what will hold his attention. But I do not go into the doors till the film is about to start. He wouldnt cope with the waiting around at all.
Well I don't think we should discuss it here tbh less we get an influx of migrants to our special place.
TBH I agree that generally MNHQ is lenient towards disablist threads but I do agree slightly with their point that to challenge viewpoints is educational. I suppose the problem though is that it is hurt people with very limited energy that are expected to do the educating, so I think they did the right thing.
People were saying that the cinema manager was right to remove him because they are there to make money, not give chances to children with SN. Do people not realise that the law insists on reasonable adjustments and it applies to private companies as well as public institutions? AAhhh!
