I mean, I sort of agree you shouldn't bring your dog to a dog park (or anywhere off leash in public) if he doesn't like kids. And I mean he period-end-of-story doesn't like kids approaching him correctly or making squealy kid noises or running.
If your dog "doesn't like kids" and that means kids who chase them and get in their face and try to take their things and climb on them, then that stupid kid shouldn't be in public.
