WHY do so many parents allow pre-school children to run riot at church services? 

Recently, after a particularly noisy session at St Margaret’s, I asked a lady to control her child.

She walked out, and several weeks later I was told by another lady I had been “judgemental”.

But I, a single man, am not allowed to enter a primary school and disrupt the lessons.

If pre school children cannot be controlled by their parents then they are surely too young to be at Mass.
