Would you like a couple of hours to yourself? Drop your little ones off at the Whole Foods Lifestyle Center in Whole Foods Market. They will be entertained with crafts and stories.

Space is limited to 8 potty trained children.

I do agree it takes a village to raise a child but i also believe that just talking to your child dosent always work and there is nothing wrong with spanking your child on the butt. If more parents cared about how there kids were going to to turn out like they would do something instead of saying they are just being kids. Parents who dont care are the reason they scream and make messes in stores, that is why stores dont want our kids there. Not all of our children act that way.

Actually, the author of that shine/yahoo piece says this, EXACTLY: "Even running errands with toddlers may be off limits. This summer Whole Foods stores in Missouri are offering child-free shopping hours..." Off limits, then child-free at Whole Foods. The inference I drew was that Whole Foods in Missouri was banning children. The author needs to be more careful if that's not what she meant.

Looks like the article was wrong. I was looking forward to shopping in a child free environment. Whole Foods, if you do decide to go child free for a few hours a week, may I suggest Friday nights after 8:00? It would be pleasant to shop with only ill mannered adults to deal with as opposed to their ill mannered children as well.

You are so correct, not all children act that way as there are parents out there that do train their children how to act in public. It is sad that the many who think their child should be able to act as they want and if you don't like it you can go home-parents far out number those who do not think that way.
