Why do you discourage children under 14 from attending?

It has been our experience that children younger than 14 tend to become bored and uncomfortable with our presentations, usually resulting in behavior which can become destructive if not controlled. We like to assure our participants that care is being taken by our convention attendees to prevent damage and improper handling of attendees’ MOCs. We would also like to provide the ability of our under age participants to attend the convention during all hours of its operation. However, denial and destructive behavior cannot be tolerated. Please be prepared to exercise responsible behavior while attending the convention to insure your full attendance to the convention.
