Actually reading the article again I think it's a joke, especially the hooting and hollering before mass, or maybe he was being fastecious (I can't spell today, pregnancy hormones).
Still, many of the points are valid. I have a toddler who can't sit still for Mass, and when I take him to the crying room, I'm constantly chasing and shhhing him. Because child care is hit or miss in our parish, we decided to simply go to Mass at different times. My husband usually takes our older kids to an earlier mass, and I go later, so one of us stays home with the 20 month old.
There are some well-behaved young, young children at Mass, but I don't think you can expect kids under 3, and some under 5, to sit still and quietly for an hour. Our oldest is the exception -- she would sit on my lap or color quietly from age 2 on, but my second would fidget (and still does at age 6!) and we didn't bring her regularly until she was 4. I think our youngest is the same way!
Anyway, just my observation. I am glad that the bishop's are attempting to straighten things out, and they seemed to address some of the problems with laziness on the part of the priests as well and the EEMs :-)
We don't have a "crying room" at our small church. If he does act up, it's out to the narthex (well, I know we're not supposed to call it that, but that's what everyone there calls it).
And, of course, you can hardly be blamed for referring to EEMs as EMs, as that's what is hammered into our heads all the time.
