Dear law students with small children,

Bringing your toddlers to school during finals and letting them loose to run shrieking through the halls is not "cute." I'm glad you have a happy family and it's swell that you're working hard in law school to provide them with a good life. But guess what? A few hundred other people are in the building right now TAKING EXAMS and they have paid a shit-ton of money to do so. This is not "fun happy family time." So here's a thought--DON'T BRING YOUR KIDS TO SCHOOL IN THE MIDDLE OF FINALS.

The fact that this is even an issue is fucking ridiculous.

Sincerely,

Everybody with some semblance of a brain

Wait? Seriously? I get mad when people eat loud food in the library during finals. If I saw a small child I'd usher them into an empty class room and lock the door.

As a mom of a toddler, and the friend of a 1L mom with *twin* toddlers who has massive childcare issues... I have to wholeheartedly agree.

My friend has had to bring her girls to school... between classes, etc., she's either outside or in the undergrad commuter lounge (there's TV) -- far far away from law students.

Point: there are alternatives to shreiking through the hallway, even for the most desperate mommy.
