Letter: Child shoppers

Sir: A ban on parents with children in supermarkets at certain times is no doubt attractive to many (letter, 12 March). Is there any time of day when I can guarantee that when I take my children out they will not have to come into contact with selfish, bad-tempered, scowling people who fail to consider others, especially those who are smaller and younger than themselves?

When Mr Watson and his kind are old, dependent and occasionally tiresome I hope they will not expect anyone to look after them or take them out in public.
