    I would. You do not want to be sitting there trying to enjoy your meal and some kids are screaming or crying because some twits who can't control their kids.

    My kids don't act like that, so definitely.
    I'd love to see some of the many jerks, that let their kids run wild, be denied service.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    With one caveat, however.

    Perhaps instead of a total ban, add a special sound proofed dining area with padded walls for those who had crying/screaming children?

    But seriously, a separate sound-proofed area might be an option, if enough screaming parents with kids kept trying to have a meal there...wait...Ah well, close enough.

    Would be extra expense, though.
    The sound-proof room wouldn't work. Parents with screaming kids cannot stand to hear other people's screaming kids, and are usually the first ones to complain.

    I've seen a few posts where "my kid" never yells and screams in public like "other people's kids". Note the use of singular and plural. I was an only child. Screaming in public would have resulted in me getting something to really scream about. Outside of course.

    As a parent with a child who has a severe anxiety disorder, I do not consider it my right or moral to inflict him on others. We sometimes go out to eat, but in the car before we go in, there are threats of punishment should he act up. Sometimes those threats work and sometimes they do not. (Sometimes the threats freak him out and he believes the sky is falling, then we go home or grab something from fast food. But again, its an anxiety disorder, its often impossible to predict how he will take even the most innocent comment sometimes ). However, I would support such a restaurant and multiple restaurants in my town. In fact I would even eat there on special occasions while I have a baby sitter.

    You know (afterthought)

    I think these same parents do realize when they're kids are out of line - because I frequent the library and they're never there.
    Why?
    Because a library has *always been* a place of quiet - everyone expects it, demands it, requires it and sees to it that it's maintained.

    So, why is a restaurant different for them?
    I think it's because they just *don't care* - perhaps they think "everyone else is talking, there's music playing, my kid can be a little loud and no one *really* knows"
    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    I hate crying kids, spoiled kids, smartass kids. Though I do feel sorry for the parents of the crying kids, and want to take the parents of the spoiled and smartass kids to a dark alley, then beat them up. For heaven's sake, how did those parents raise their children? Though I do feel sorry for the crying kid's parents.

    I wonder if this is an outgrowth of what happens during mealtime at home. I bet it is, actually. At my house, mealtime is mealtime, not playtime, not television time, not torment the dog time, etc. You sit, you eat, you put away your dirty dishes, and then you can go back to running around or whatever.

    It's totally an outgrowth of what happens at home. If kids won't sit at the dinner table at home, they sure as hell won't do it in a restaurant. If kids aren't trying new foods at home, they will demand chicken fingers and fries (the worst meal on the planet for kids---full of fat & salt). Kids display their NORMAL behavior in a restaurant.

    This is a beach town, she's shooting herself in the foot with this rule.

    then again the story is sensationalized, they are not "banned" but told if you have a screaming child you will be asked to take said child outside.


    We take our one year old out to eat all the time. We do it early around 5 ish. IF you are bothered by his antics you can go pound sand.

    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it

    yup, if they provide me with a high chair, it comes with the notion that sometime a one year old will make some noise.

    Perhaps. then again a beach town is a family town, those that don't cater to childeren tend to fold rather quickly.
