Hear hear Jackie!

The point for me is being around a range of people and teaching my children to behave appropriately in that environment as well as the learning/cultural aspect - just because we're parents with children means that we only want to hang out with other parents and children.

The main problem with the Tate Members Room is that it is just far too busy, particularly at weekends and all sense of relaxation is lost when you head there wondering whether you will get in, whether you'll find a seat and if you do, you are then surrounded by a sea of anxious faces also looking for seats.

Do me a favour, and find me the bit where it says that, would you? It doesn't say that in any of the membership info that I've seen. Or is it possible that you've got your own dreamworld mixed up with the real world?
It doesn't say you shouldn't take a dump on the floor either.

And have you seen anyone take a dump on the floor there? Didn't think so.

Exactly. There are some things people shouldn't have to be told not to do. It should be obvious.

Obvious? Hilarious.

Yep, because it's a fine line between taking children to a member's room and taking a dump on the floor in your world, right? Jeez.

Actually you'd win The Turner Prize.

Gosh this is really super...not being any kind of techno-whiz I'm terribly impressed. Meantime...I think the point emmab makes re getting children to BEHAVE is all important. No child HAS to be disruptive and no child needs to be indulged in being a pain to other people...if there's a child wreking havoc, he/she should simply be taken outside. Otherwise, I reiterate that taking children from early on to galleries instills a habit for a lifetime...and gets them away from the bloody telly!

Did I say it was a fine line? No! I was just using it as an example as something people know not to do.

You may think you have a god-given right to take your screaming brats where ever you like, but you don't. Why don't you show some respect for other members by not abusing the Members' Room by turning it into (as the OP put it) "Satan's crèche".
