Hi Liz,

I totally agree that its up to the parent and should generally be their
responsibility but I wanted to be considerate of the space and community,
as well.

It was a lady coming to the Vegan Hacker event on Tuesday who wanted to
bring her daughter along. I actually did reply to her saying exactly what
I mentioned above and including links to what I found on the Noisebridge
wiki that essentially mention what Rachel did. I wasn't discouraging, just
trying to give some information as it sounded like she was familiar with
the space.

I appreciate your replies! I guess I never considered kids before. Good to
know.

Kathryn
