I was watching Good Morning America this morning and they had a story about some restaurants not allowing children under 7 in the restaurant after 7pm. I thought that it was an interesting story and I am sure that everyone has their own opinion.
I am sure we have all experienced either our own children or watching someone else’s child acting up or running around in a restaurant. The hosts of Good Morning America were talking about if their children act up in a restaurant they leave. It is hard to keep children occupied at restaurants, we always try to go to family friendly restaurants where they have crayons and something to color on. I also try to have books in the diaper bag. Most of the time we also bring the ipads so they can play games on them until the food comes.
Here is the link to the story here from GMA.
They also interviewed another restaurant owner that took a picture of their floor after some people left who had children eating with them. They posted in on facebook it definitely got mixed reactions. The restaurant owner was not happy with the mess that was left and said most of her patrons are respectful and don’t leave a mess like that.
It made me think do you clean up at a restaurant if your kids make a mess? What do you think of restaurants not allowing children under a certain age in a restaurant after a certain time of the day?
Also what do you do to help occupy your child when you eat out a restaurant?
