    Would you go to a restaurant that banned crying and screaming children?

    Would you go to a restaurant that banned crying and or screaming children?

    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.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    I'd make it my new favorite place and "hangout".

    If you can't afford a babysitter for a couple hours, you can't afford to go out to a decent restaurant for a meal. Hit the golden arches where they serve your kind.

    If they served good food, it would probably become one of my regular places to eat.

    Hell yes.

    Let me say this as a parent...there is no reason that your children can't be taught to eat a meal properly in a restaurant that doesn't serve chicken fingers and french fries. My kids did it all the time. And, if one of my kids acted up, he/she was taken outside or to the restroom until the behavior stopped so as not to disturb other patrons. Those are THE PARENT RULES. That's what you are supposed to do. Children are supposed to SIT IN A CHAIR AND EAT. If you have a toddler, you should plan to bring snacks/activities to keep them occupied. Your children are NOT supposed to run around a restaurant or speak in outdoor voices. This is not ****ing rocket science.

    Where are the parents who would use government to force restaurant patrons to suffer their bad parenting? This cant be a one sided issue...

    QED.

    We've never had trouble at a restaurant with our kid. We have taken her out all kinds of places at a very early age, which I think helps. It also helps to insist on correct behavior.

    This restaurant is simply a response to parents who apparently don't have what it takes to control their children.

    The government isn't being enlisted. It is the owner of the restaurant that is instituting these rules.
