Should there be a separate seating area on planes for families with babies and young children? Discuss among yourselves

In recent comments on this blog, some visitors suggested that airlines seat parents with babies, toddlers, and young children in the same section of the plane. Perhaps the idea was that the kids could all play with each other, or more likely that wailing babies and over-active children would be isolated away from passengers trying to enjoy some peace and quiet. Is this a good idea?

One way to fight the noise is to buy one of these Shure
noise isolating headphones and
other manufacturers. Post your comments.
