Warning-Trigger Alert

I paid a fairly significant amount of money to sit very up close and personal at the Cirque du Soleil show, and so did everyone around us. A mother with her young children were very near us and were loud, yelling during the performance and left so much garbage on the floor it was incredibly savage – children and mother alike. They were politely asked to be quiet numerous times by the staff and only finally by the time the second half rolled around was when we, and the general vicinity were able to enjoy the show in peace because they were yelled at by others around them that they finally clued in to just shut up. If you cannot teach your children to be respectful of the situation and tell them to shut up during a performance, leave your animals at home.

  1. Wow, sounds like you’re an entitled piece of work. Maybe lend a helping hand next time to the mother who is trying to give her kids a cool experience.

    • Adrienne Bursey so you think it’s fair to impose that responsibility on strangers who paid to go see a show, not to babysit/parent someone’s out of control kids?

      Talk about entitled….so as long as you and your kids are happy who cares what impact you’re actions hsbe on every other person’s experience?……that’s sad

    • Adrienne Bursey I have kids too. You know what… I would’ve taken my kids out to the foyer and had a very pointed discussion with them. Not let them act like baboons. Which is why my kids don’t talk and act a fool during performances/shows. And yes I’ve taken them to many things by myself.
      You teach your children how to behave!!! It’s called take control of the situation!!!

    • Adrienne Bursey The tickets for this show weren’t cheap. I would be less than impressed if I couldn’t enjoy the show due to some bratty kids and an ignorant mother. It’s called respect and behaving properly in public, not like a bunch of orangutans

    • It also says in the article that both the mother and children were being very loud and messy. Whether this means the mom was being loud trying to get the kids to be quiet, or if she was just being an obnoxious patron I dont know. But for arguments sake, let’s go for the first one because it would validate your point more than the second.

      After she had tried to keep then quiet, and it didnt work, she should have taken the kids and left. Period. That’s cool that you think she was just trying to give her kids a cool experience and I can respect that. But at the end of the day, alot of people, other than her and her kids had paid good money to see the show. It’s not fair to ruin all of their experience, for the sake of the experiences of your children. And more importantly, it could have distracted the performers which isnt fair or safe either.

      Giving your kids a good experience for their memories is great. But putting that experience above every single other persons’ at that show, is just selfish anyway you look at it. I dont agree with the OP calling them animals…that’s just stupid and petty. But I agree. Sorry, not sorry. If your kids arent be behaved or respectful of the show, take them home.

    • Adrienne Bursey that mother should be able to handle her own kids. They are HER kids. And helping hand? Really? So she can say they are my kids???? Umm no. Control your kids or don’t go out

    • Adrienne Bursey baby sit your own damn kids. Why should I help you with your kids? I paid to watch a show not watch your damn kids. If you can’t handle your kids, then keep them at home. Ignorant ass you are

    • Amanda Rockwell, thank you for your respectful and constructive argument. I can appreciate if the mom was being totally awful and not caring that her kids were being disrespectful how this would impact those around them. I just know that with my own kids it takes A LOT of work to go anywhere with them. If a mom is willing to try go take their kids out for a special occasion and works hard to ensure they’re acting appropriately and it goes south I would hope those around her give her a little leeway. It’s hard to reach kids how to act respectfully in different environments if kids are never exposed to different environments. I know I work very hard to help my kids learn and sometimes it de-rails. Sometimes we can get back on track and enjoy the rest of an experience and sometimes we can’t.

    • Maybe discipline your children and they would behave properly ANYWHERE!!! To many parents bubble wrapping their entilted children.

    • Dianne and Alexis, how do people teach their kids how to act in different situations if they are never exposed to different situations? Like all things, manners take practice. I personally hate McDonald’s and won’t go there. I enjoyed an awesome dinner at Pampa with my kids last night. Highly recommended that place over McDonald’s

      Adrienne Bursey if it is too hard to go out with the kids. Maybe don’t have as many. I had 4 kids all close in age. They always behaved in public, if they didn’t we left. They knew what was acceptable and what wasn’t. I single parented them majority of the time as their dad was away from home often

      Adrienne Bursey I get what you are saying about how do you teach kids to behave in public if they don’t go out for special occasions. I would just counter that if they aren’t used to it, maybe try something not so expensive, or something geared more to a juvenile audience for starters. And like others have said, if the children couldn’t handle it, remove them from the situation. Yes it sucks for the mother, but it shouldn’t ruin the experience for everyone around them.

    • Lynn Johnson Lynn Johnson says:

      No one deserves to see a show. When you’re going to show it’s expected, no matter the age group, that you behave yourself in a way that respects the venue and other guests. Misbehaving kids can also ruin the experience for kids who want to enjoy the show. Why is it okay for your kids get to ruin the experience for other children?

      When I took my nephew to see Walking with the Dinosaurs I was so angry at the family behind us. My nephew was 4 and he was behaving much better than the two kids (who looked at a minimum twice his age) sitting behind us. At first the parents did absolutely nothing to stop the kids misbehaving. The kids were screaming the entire time and one was kicking the back of my chair. When I turned around and said “please, stop” the mother had the audacity to glare at me. The family finally had the sense to leave halfway through. That show cost $120 for two tickets and it was not something I could normally afford, it was supposed to be special. I know ADHD can be a handful, but that absolutely does not mean it’s okay for your child to act whatever way they see fit at the expense of others.

      I will say it again, no one anywhere, ever is entitled to a show. It is a luxury.

      Consideration works both ways. I have worked with kids with developmental disabilities and I know there is no easy solution. I have been in a situation where it was difficult to be inclusive and fair to everyone else at the same time. Exposure is the best way for a child to learn but it’s also the adult’s responsibility to know when it’s time to bow out. Parents have to assess the situation as it presents itself. If you are knowingly over stimulating your child to the point where they are screaming and can’t keep calm and choose to ignore it than you are being an irresponsible parent. That’s not fun or considerate for the kid.

It absolutely is a reason why things have been a challenge but if they could not be respectful of our surroundings we left.

If he is loud here and there ok, however if he starts being so disruptive that no one can enjoy the show, then as a parent I would have to remove him from the situation as that tells me it’s too much stimulation for him. The op isn’t talking about a disruption here and there, they are talking about not even really be able to watch the show. The family got in trouble from the staff that should tell you right there just how loud they were being. Consideration goes both ways, we can’t always expect everyone to be considerate of our children if we also can’t be considerate of others ourselves. As parents we should know what our child can and can’t handle and we should never use it as an excuse to be inconsiderate to others.

  18. Perhaps her child had ADHD , autism, or some illness that made this event over stimulating for them but the mother allowed the child to experience it because the child wanted to go to it. You don’t know, perhaps this was a distraction from their broken home life, a recent death, please don’t be so judgemental you never know what is going on in their lives but obviously the child was super excited to be there. It is unfortunate that a child’s excitement bothered you so much. Thankfully your child is healthy and perfect!

      I’m sorry, but this is so selfish. My good time should not come at the expense of everyone else around me. I have taken kids out in public and if they’re causing a scene it’s time to leave, plain and simple. It’s up to the parent to assess the situation,and part of that assessment should be how their child is effecting the other people. My personal problems also aren’t an excuse to be disruptive, especially at an event where everyone else paid good money to be there. You’re essentially saying “I don’t care about the people around us, as long as my family is having a good time”.

      You don’t know what’s going on with the person sitting next to you. That show could have been a birthday gift, an anniversary, or someone’s respite from their own broken home life. Parents definitely have a lot more to consider when their child may be dealing with a barrier in life, but that’s not an reason to dismiss the comfort of everyone else around you. This is basic consideration.

    • Adrienne Bursey so a child with autism or a disease that may cause overstimulation should never experience things like this because they may be disruptive to someone else’s pleasure? They already miss out on so much because of their illnesses. Perhaps people should talk to the people in charge of the show and have them set one show a side for families that have children with illnesses that may cause disruptions for others, so they too can enjoy experiences without disrupting others.

      This isn’t a black/white issue. I absolutely do not fault the individuals dealing with disabilities, but parents need to be considerate of their surroundings. Noticing your child is becoming over stimulated and ignoring it benefits no one. I do not fault parents who are clearly trying to do the best for the child and for everyone around them.
      Parents can try their best and have things still not work out and I can sympathize. But if the OP’s details are accurate – if a child is causing a huge scene, running around, and making a mess, it does not sound like a considerate parent.

  19. Perhaps her child had ADHD , autism, or some illness that made this event over stimulating for them but the mother allowed the child to experience it because the child wanted to go to it. You don’t know, perhaps this was a distraction from their broken home life, a recent death, please don’t be so judgemental you never know what is going on in their lives but obviously the child was super excited to be there. It is unfortunate that a child’s excitement bothered you so much. Thankfully your child is healthy and perfect!

    • Lynn Johnson Lynn Johnson says:

      I’m sorry, but this is so selfish. My good time should not come at the expense of everyone else around me. I have taken kids out in public and if they’re causing a scene it’s time to leave, plain and simple. It’s up to the parent to assess the situation,and part of that assessment should be how their child is effecting the other people. My personal problems also aren’t an excuse to be disruptive, especially at an event where everyone else paid good money to be there.

  30. I’ve never been to cirq- is this a quiet performance atmosphere like a ballet? I was under the impression it was more….circus like? Loud, flashy etc?
    I honestly don’t know, but IMO if Its more like a ballet than a circus, then yes shut your kids up… but if it’s more like a circus than a ballet…. I mean… isn’t it loud anyway?

    • Shauna Chambers yes its loud at times. There is a circus atmosphere to it, with jugglers and trapeze acts. Loud music and lights. Kids sit wide eyed and amazed. Not sure they should be jumping up and down and yelling the entire time but I can understand their excitement over the atmosphere. But their supervising adult should rein them in if they get carried away enough to disturb other patrons.

      I do agree, there can absolutely be excessive behaviour even at the most boisterous events for sure.
      I’m always on the side of “not everyone loves your kids”, but if I were to go someplace that catered to kids I’d have a harder time justifying being annoyed.

      Example: the TELUS world of science. Went for a grown assed adults birthday because we are nerds. Kids everywhere screaming and running into your knee caps etc.
      I was annoyed as fuck I couldn’t just check out exhibits and learn stuff in peace but, I mean, I couldn’t really be upset from a rational standpoint.

      Was just curious what atmosphere it was

    You need to pull your bottom lip over your head and swallow.
    That kind of intolerance is despicable. If you do not agree with how people raise their children the I suggest you start a campaign to make it mandatory for people to get a license to breed and populate.
    By the sound of your complaint, I dont think your parents would have gotten a license and hence you wouldn’t exist….

    To call children animals is most disturbing and doesn’t matter whether misbehaving or not but to call them animals you should be in the HALL of Shame……

    ‘Behaviour is learned’ so the children usually model what they’ve learned or been taught which comes from the parents……I do agree that people pay lots of monies for these types of entertainment and if this lady can afford to go to these shows possibly she should be considering babysitting if her children are prone to getting out of hand …… or she could try to teach them the skills they need to attend these venues

  103. I would have carted my kids out of there soo fast. You sit down and shut up and watch the show if I brought my kids there it was to watch the show if they want to run around and scream we will go to the playground.. And shame on all the parents saying otherwise..

  105. What I find interesting about this post is all of the people defending the actions of the mother and children and excusing it with reference to disabilities or ADHD. Considering the fact that they seemed to behave for the second half of the show according to the OP once it got to the point that people around them had to vocalize their frustration, I don’t think you can attribute the behavior to something out of the children and parent’s control. I think it was just bad bahaviour in a public settling and is not acceptable. There is a complete difference between excitement from a child and bad behaviour. And it is truly disturbing how many parents excuse the bad behaviour and are attacking the OP.

  107. Did anybody ask them or the mother to have the children sit and behave rather than yell at them? If my son is being a disrespectful jerk to me in public, sometimes a well meaning stranger to tell him to sit, be quiet, and watch the show is far more effective than me yelling at him.

    I took my kid and a bunch of her friends to a movie for her birthday. They’re 11, more than old enough to be respectful during a movie.

    I’m now considered “mean mom” because after asking nicely like 4 times I snapped at them (just a couple, most of them including mine were just fine) to keep it down or I’d be pulling them out into the hallway like little kids.

    Lol

    Sorry dudes. You’re practically teenagers, if you can’t act your age I’ll treat you like toddlers. Other people paid for that movie too, no way was I going to allow that.
