This afternoon I was in the chat room and I voiced my frustration--a bit too freely--about my friends and their children. All of my friends have kids, and whenever we get together, everything (when, where, and even whether we go out; what we can say or do) revolves around the little ... darlings.
I strongly feel that many parents spoil their kids terribly and that in many cases they sacrifice their lives for their children, but outside of discussion forums like this one, even raising the subject seems taboo. How do you deal with these problems aside from going into the chat room and ventilating your feelings in ways that make people with kids feel uncomfortable? Do you ever confront your friends on their single-minded devotion to their immediate families?
