I think that there would be less children but more children's activities altogether, and that would be a goodness. Because if people stop teaching, then *no* children have classes. So the question seems to be... lots of classes with limited children or limited classes for lots of children (with frustrated teachers)?
If you planned them in the afternoon it would be less likely to collide with the classes or happenings that the parents *and* probably the teachers want to participate in, and may help alleviate that problem for parents that are *not* neglectful but do want to participate in adult-oriented activites, which is why they came to the event. :)

I'm sure you're right, but I don't have children so, of course, it
would be an easy policy for me to support. :)
I think this is probably going to be a turning point issue for our
organization - even more than it already has been. The SCA has always
been (from my perspective at least) an adult-oriented, but
child-friendly organization. I believe all the legal issues and
associated expenses will force us to either become less child friendly
or more "officially" child oriented (with all the legal garbage that
entails). Corporate seems to be taking the latter route, but either way
it will definitely change our game. Financially supporting these child
liability issues will force our focus, as money usually does...
