If the kid's used to being belted in in the family car (SUV), then riding the plane is likely no problem.

Air Tran reimbursed the family the cost of their tickets and offered them three roundtrip tickets anywhere the airline flies as compensation.

Sweet! I'm going to teach my kid how to throw temper tantrums.

Parenting??? How dare he say that!!!

My 27 week pregnant wife and 3 yo daughter are in the air right now. Flying back from seeing her parents. Ana loves to fly and behaved herself very well the time or two before this. We bring snacks and either a laptop or a portable DVD player with headphones to keep her distracted. I'll know in about an hour and a half how todays trip went.

It's worked so far.

As for parents letting their kids run amok, we are trying to install a LOT more discipline in our kids than they apparently believe in. Yes, I know this child had ear problems, but the parents should have planned for that and given the child something to help her deal with it.

Expecting the airlines to just rework their entire schedule is just ridiculous. Filing a lawsuit after the airlines had already tried to make a "peace offering" when they didn't really need to is just idiotic. Yet more reason to have a "loser pays" system for civil cases.

Looks like the parents were rewarded for having a spoiled child.

Here are four tips for getting children to behave on airplanes.

1. Discipline your children
2. Train your children.
3. Teach your children.
4. Be a mentor and an example for your children to follow.

If you can't remember all 4, just remember #1 (Actually, 2-3 DEFINE #1.)

An article I read when the story broke suggested that the parents were sitting together and the child was in a row in front of them. To me this is just asking for trouble.

If ever there were a place where you need to make sure your children were behaving, this is the place.

says it all!

call us odd, but kids learn how to behave from their parents and by actually using those skills in...gasp! public! yep, from a very early age we've always taken our kids out. granted, they're not perfect, but what kid is? i know of many people who frimly refuse to go out with their kids. how the heck are they supposed to learn how to behave in public if they're never out?

i flew with our 5 yr old from d.c. to n.m. last may. we had a great trip, even the 3 or so hr leg from d.c. to dallas. i took gummy bears for her to chew and a bag of goodies like her cd player, coloring stuff and games. she was awesome :)

This is stupid

These people lack basic parenting skills.

A three year old is old enough to understand commands and to follow instruction

This problem started way before they tried to buckle her in the seat that day

parents are probably up and coming socialist

There's no doubt who was in control here. The child. That happened a long time before pushback time for this flight.

Forget all the Psychobable krep above.

Teach the child to obey her parents. End of story.

It still amazes me that I can't smoke on a plane, but screaming kids and human virus factories are still allowed to spew germs all over everyone on the flight. Glad that I don't have to fly.

Maybe she found out the Airtran is just Valujet with a new paint job.

Simple solution: in flight, the pilot is just as a captain on the high seas and can marry, arrest and/or SPANK passengers as needed.

These brattish temper tantrums are classic examples of children being in control...and they are actually terrified because of it. "Spare the rod and spoil the child."
