Parents need to watch their kids

At LAX flying Delta and several groups of parents are letting their kids run around and throw their toys while they're on their smartphones

In the terminal? The Sky Club? On the plane?

I'm all for venting but not sure what any of us can do to help you.

The kids definitely shouldn't be running around and throwing things while they're on their cellphones. They'll fall and break their cellphones.

I'd locate the nearest LEO and ask them to go David Dao on the parents. How dare they let their kids run around in an airport.

Would you prefer the kids wait till they're on the plane to get their energy out by running around?

Only if they aren't on my flight !
With the adult drunks, phone bellowers and DYKWIAs so often seen at airports it's hardly surprisiing they are raising their kids to be equally inconsiderate. Just lke the adults these kids are a minority , you just notice them rather than the ones behaving normally though.

If it's not the latter two then this thread has no business being in the "Delta" forum.
