    Oh, they're not. I'm generally MORE concerned with my sister swearing like a sailor in the presence of little people. I love infants, babies, toddlers, - and I can tell the difference between a cry of distress for whatever reason, vs a rebel yell.

    The restaurant in question isn't concerned about chirps and cries. They're concerned about screaming tantrums.

    Yeah that stuff bothers me as well.

    Actually that can be and is often dealt with discreetly, putting up a sign on your dive bar is an attempt to get attention.

    Right - but if the parent isn't dealing at all (which does happen) ... I mean, maybe that's why that place wound up going to these lengths.

    Who knows. I've never had to deal hands on with an autistic child (my second nephew from my baby sister) but I did deal with his older brother (ADHD) and that was just **** tons of fun. I don't envy any parent walking in those shoes.

    i am inclined to believe the sign is intended to keep people such as yourself, away; those who believe it is ok to impose their kids' inappropriate behavior on other patrons

    You mean a bar? Really I don't know why this is so offensive. Not all restaurants have to be family restaurants.

    But I should be able to take my kids (if I had any) into any establishment providing food (in any form), and expect a smoke-free, kid-friendly, cheap, quality dining experience. Plus, while I hit on the waitresses, with tips from my (currently nonexistent) wife, I expect those said waitresses and the rest of the staff to ensure my kids don't get hurt... Physically or mentally, and I'm positive that they will incur great mental harm from being told to shut the **** up.
