Mum divides opinion after handing out earplugs & apology notes on flight in case toddler son gets 'out of control' | The Sun
A MUM handed out earplugs and apology notes on a flight in case her toddler son got "out of control" – leaving some passengers grateful and others baffled.
The concerned parent was pictured dishing out bags to around 100 passengers on board a plane set to take off for a two-and-a-half-hour journey from north China.
Each bag contained earplugs, lollies and a note asking for forgiveness if her 20-month-old son started crying during the trip.
The mum, named only by her surname Wang, told local media: "My son is 20 months old and may get out of control and cry, I am afraid that he may disturb other passengers, so I’d better remind them ahead of the flight."
Ahead of the flight, she prepared more than 100 gift bags including a handwritten message accompanied by a cartoon animal.
Footage shows the mum and her tot walking through the aisle ahead of take-off handing out the bags.

She said she came up with the idea after seeing passengers get annoyed by crying kids on public transport.
The mum told Bailu Video: “If parents show an attitude of gratitude and offer an apology to fellow passengers, I believe they can put up with the children.
But her gesture has divided opinion – with some praising the mum while others branded the bags "unnecessary".
One person commented: "Wang is a very civilised and decent mum, and so will her child grow up to be.”

A second added: “If I did encounter such a sweet and heartfelt experience, I think it would make my day.”
But a third said: "I think it’s too much to prepare so many gifts, she can tell the passengers directly."
And another replied: "Is it just a piece of play-acting?".
It comes after a passenger divided opinion online after complaining about a child crying on her flight.
The woman, who goes by the name Mooorganic on TikTok, shared a video of her onboard a plane with a child's wails in the background.
She captioned it: "Why isn’t there such a thing as adult only flights? I would pay SO much money.”
But the woman's post caused a considerable amount of backlash among fellow TikTokers.
