To me, the more I think about it, the more things should just be let go. We always worry so much about judgment from others in public but we really shouldn't imo. Who cares what they think?
Now that you mention it, he wasn't that disruptive. We were outside playing and even though his voice was a bit shrill, you have to expect some noise with a bunch of kids playing. It was the kind of thing where some people might have given her a "control your child" look. I guess we'll have to expect some of those with Alphie's approach.
