Your Monday Moms page recently included some dos and don’ts for parents with young children in restaurants.
In the last week, we experienced some unpleasant disruptions by children who were out of parental control.
Here are some suggestions to parents who feel they must go out to dinner with their offspring:
Make sure your children are well rested, healthy, and old enough to handle the wait at a restaurant.
Bring enough activities for the children to be occupied, distracted, quiet, and out of the way of servers and other customers.
Make sure that you can give your children your attention so they do not seek it elsewhere.
If these are not possible, go to a restaurant more suitable for your children’s needs, or hire a sitter and have an adult evening out.
