So a restaurant is banning children under 6 (http://www.wtae.com/video/28491075/detail.html).
That doesn’t appall me nearly the degree to which the reaction I’ve heard regarding it does. Parents of multiple children have told me they think it should be the beginnings of a trend because “it’s not too much to ask that on date night with my husband I not have children near me”. One place is one place. A population of fans is something more.
I feel for their children, seeing how they really feel about them. I also feel for anyone subjected to these children because I can only imagine they have no discipline since the parents don’t believe the kids are capable so why bother.
We are one of those ‘inappropriate’ people who take our four year old son to fine dining establishments. We are one of those
We tend to stick to Mediterranean or Caribbean food because it matches what he is familiar with. Sasha is a hearty eater and truly enjoys mealtime and eating and *likes* going to these. It’s something different, but not too different. The food is good. And he feels it’s very special. A child knowing how to appreciate such an experience is key to helping them behave properly. And allowing them to experience better in life than is usually given to children—good quality fresh food and comfortable and beautiful settings where people behave with decorum and manners—is key to helping them appreciate the experience.
