    LOL
    Wish I could thank more than once.

    I do believe that adults who have not yet learned how to be considerate do need to have it demonstrated to them in a very concrete way as to what their inconsiderate behavior looks like. I am certain they must have been made aware of their inconsideration at some point, and now its been demonstrated to them. Oscar performed a public service.

    Anyone exhibiting this kind of behavior to my children for any reason would find that the ability to leave the restaurant had been inhibited by their inability to actually ambulate any longer.

    Really? But prior to the smoke incident: Would your children have been acting like Helen Keller before the intervention, while you calmly and completely ignored their antics?

    Way to go, man, I admire people who don't take that kind of nonsense quietly.

    Sadly, my favorite restaurant very often has brat children with parents who think they're entitled to be a public nuisance. I wish I didn't actually like eating at the place so I could pull a stunt like that.

    No, as previously stated, I take the behavior of my children very seriously and am very conscious of their behavior in public, but the bottom line is that no one has the right to treat a child disrespectfully and anyone who crosses that line with my children will have stepped into a far bigger hole than they realize.

    That being said, my parenting methods may not be the same as everyone else's and it is not their business to inform me how they think my children should be raised.

    On a side note, I don't take my children any place that doesn't have a kid's menu.

    probably further than futilely turning the other cheek and ignoring bad behavior.
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.

    Exactly. So the situation with the smoke never would have occurred with your family.
