Too often we (society) bring kids to places they shouldn’t be brought, and then restrict their curiosity. They learn something with that, something bad, methinks. We made a new rule recently, if we bring our kids somewhere, we’ll let them do as they please, so long as they don’t damage anything, or themselves. If it bothers you, well, “suffer the children” ;).
