Children And Restaurants – The Unwanted Solution

Ever go to a restaurant, where they have a kids’ menu, and food is all over the floor, kids are eating and smacking their food with their mouths open, and you can’t hear yourself think because of the kid wailing in the booth a few feet away? What are parents thinking these days? What happened to controlling your kid? Why do they have to let everyone else in the restaurant be miserable just because they chose to not handle their kid with a little maturity?

Sure, I understand that people with kids want to eat out they have to take their kids. I’m not against that so much, but there has to be a limit to what they are allowed to do in public. It’s not your house. The people around you shouldn’t have to deal with your child.

Learn to control them, at least for society’s sake. When I go out for a nice evening at a restaurant, I don’t want to be bothered by other people’s kids, and neither does anyone else! I have kids, and I would take them with me. I taught them some manners. You have to teach your kids manners, I don’t know what has happened over time, but so many kids don’t have manners these days!

"misbehaving kid"Teach them to eat with their mouth shut, if they can’t, they lose their food! That’s all there is to it. They can sit there and watch everyone else eat if they don’t use proper table manners. But you have to teach them.

If your kid gets loud, you have to take them out of the room. You’ve got to figure out what’s going to work between you and your kids so that others can enjoy their evening in the restaurant. The solution to this problem is the parents. Parents just don’t want to step up to the plate, discipline today is nearly nonexistent.  Kids are the way they are because of how the parents are raising them. There’s no other excuse than that.

You may not want to have to take responsibility, but you really should. Take your kids and teach them. Teach them manners in a restaurant, how they should eat, how they should sit, and haven’t you ever heard of “indoor voices?” I grew up with that, and so did nearly everyone I thought. Seems like it’s not getting passed on to this new generation. Step up, grow up, and take responsibility for your kids’ actions. If not for kids now, do it so they will know how to raise your grandkids.
