After calling a parent out for bringing a baby to a show like this, the panel began.


Can I get context from this? Was the baby screaming and causing a disturbance to others? Was the baby in danger from the crowds?

Yes, having a child does mean a parent has to make adjustments to their life. However, that doesn't mean that they suddenly can't have a life, and I'm sick and tired of this mindset of "OMG, you're even CONSIDERING bringing your child to a convention, you're a horrible parent, I'm calling CPS!"

Does NYCC not have panel mods/room aids/whatever they're called? Send one of them over to quietly ask the parent to calm their child down or leave if the child is causing a problem, but publicly humiliating them is uncalled for.

It was jokey, like "you shouldn't bring a kid to watch this kinda stuff!"
