LETTER: Everyone is welcome

In a place where children are welcome, safety is the main concern.

Re: “Please control your children,” Letters, August 27

Really? Wouldn’t it be great if everyone could reap the benefit of well-mannered children in public spaces at all times?

Attitudes toward parenting are a hot topic no matter where you go in this world and it’s easy to want to place blame when some children’s behaviour becomes inconvenient for some adults.

In a place where children are welcome, safety is the main concern. Any business would be ill-advised to direct child-rearing tips when a parent is oblivious to the nuisance.

It appears that Ms. Kennedy’s intent was to single out Ainsworth Hot Springs for not interfering in a particular parenting situation. I feel this criticism is unwarranted since she clearly points blame for “noise abuse and uncivil behaviour” at negligent parents who won’t pay attention anyway.

Ainsworth Hot Springs Resort is open to the public and everyone is welcome.
