For me older children learning or helping the business are fine, it's the young disruptive ones that I'm against. For many people this is a business and no one wants people bringing kids to their place of work.

As with most things in life some idiot always ruins something for the majority of decent people. I think its kind of cool for a father to take his son with him to auctions on hte weekend, teach him about being entrepreneurial, making some money, doing something together.

At the same time people need to realize its not a Saturday afernoon at hte fair, some people rely on their fulltime income from auctions and its not a game or lets go look at cool stuff, its a business. As long as parents keep their kids near them and act right at the auctions I have no problem with it but when kids are running aorund they are sitting in front of the units not letting ohter people look in and see the unit, etc thats a problem

Ok I've been to them with kids what gets me is the parents aren't bidding and the kids are coming up to look inside. why they aren't going to bid so why hold up the line for the really buyers that want the locker.
But most of the time the kids are good and quite so it don't bother me that much and I know I will have my chance to look.  What bugs me is the ones with babies not dressed for the type of weather.
At the auction house I work at we have a few kids that come but they are well behaved.

Don't you really hate it when they start pointing to all the good things in the unit and say, "hey look at that!"

There are a FEW...  My kid (almost 11)  Will help anyone when he can...  Sometimes leaving me out in the cold...  Setting up at a church yard sale, he helped a lot of people set up and carry stuff in..  Even took my hand truck..  Most wanted to give him a little something too... So I guess thats okay..  Makes me feel good when he tells them "No thats okay!"

Yes, they are a reflection of good parenting.

You can be a good parent and still a have a difficult child. On the other hand, I know drunks and drug addicts who have wonderful, well behaved, responsible children.
