Toddlers and social occasionsBe it marriages, birthday parties or family get together, these times usually mean a lot of fun when all the members of a family come under one roof. Marriages essentially become platforms for extending one's range of friendship.
Now, here is the pressing part. I really don't get as to why people are so keen on bringing toddlers to these functions. They don't understand whats's happening and usually end up crying and resulting in his/her parents to take care of them instead of enjoying the function. Well, if the idea is to introduce their bundle of joy to the relatives, then there are a host of functions such as the birthday of the child or such.
Toddlers usually become uncomfortable around new surroundings and when its coupled with new people who touch them, pick them up and other forms of "expressing love", the toddlers usually become exhausted and ultimately resort to crying and other methods of displaying discomfort.
What do you think? Am I right to say that toddlers should be mostly avoided from such functions?
