You know the restaurants I go too never seem to have kids.
I think the closest it came was to a chinese place thats my ex's parents ran and there were some teenagers.

i dont have anything against parents who bring their kids out to restaurants with them. thats totally fine. just as long as they keep their kids behaved.

we once had a mini anniversary party for my parents and the cake was on display. one of the guest's kid wouldn't stop running and touching the fucking cake. and the guest wasn't even keeping an eye on her kid

I'm not the kind of person who would stare across the restaurant like so:



I'd just do my best to ignore it. Put my mind in another place.

I am of the opinion that one of a parents' most important jobs is to civilize their children. #1 Keep them alive and healthy, and #2 teach them how to behave in a civilized manner. It seems like many people are unaware of the fact that culture and civilization are learned, not instinctual, and because of that there are mobs of little barbarians running around our country.

I think that only well-behaved children should be allowed in fancy restaurants, or no children at all. People at fancy restaurants are paying top dollar for an experience, and crying children is not the kind of experience they are looking for. Wasn't there a story on the news a while ago about a restaurant that banned small children? I totally support a restaurant owners' right to ban children from their establishment.

The way children learn to behave in restaurants is by being taught and going to restaurants...

I understand it's uncomfortable for people like the op

And if the children are misbehaving and the parents do nothing that's awful for everyone

But it's really not fair to say kids shouldn't be allowed in restaurants and should only go to ones like macdonalds....

I will take our kids when we hve them to restaurants but will make sure they behave or we will go home.

They will not leave their seat and will understand they cannotove around alone in a restuatant

I have taken my friends children to restaurants and they behaved
Children can behave in restaurants but sometimes they have hiccups and as long as that behaviour is address straight away and isnt allowed to escalate that's fine.

agree 100%

seeing these "i hate kids, they shouldn't be allowed in restaurants" is really disconcerting to me. i know screaming children can be annoying... but, really? Not allow kids to eat in restaurants? idk 'bout ya'll but i live in a free country & i don't think disallowing children in restaurants would go over well.

seriously ya'll all sound like a bunch of stuck up teenagers.

The noise doesn't bother me so much as the lack of boundaries enforced by the parents. I was always taught not to mess with other people's stuff or invade their space and when someones brings kids to the house it seems like the first thing they do is raid the fridge and start picking up things asking if they can have it. To relate that to dinning out I've seen kids going to to other tables and bothering other customers on more than one occasion.


*speaking of petulant children, a picture of Kim Jong Un just popped up on my leftmost monitor as I was typing when my wallpapers cycled, kinda disturbing....
