So what about the kids who are quiet and behave themselves in an exemplary way?
Guess discrimination is the in thing now.

As far as restaurants and such go, if you don't want kids around, have dinner later.
what part of "no kids" do you want to argue with?

I have two boys, one a teenager. Since they were babies, we taught them how to behave in public. Even when they were 8 or 9 and we would see some kid acting up in public, they would say "what is wrong with those parents? They need to get their kids under control". They don't like it anymore than I do! Spare the rod, spoil the child. My kids KNEW if they acted up what was going to happen. They also know I don't threaten. If I tell you to do it, then you had better do it, PERIOD! I hate when parents go 1...2..no! Tell them. If they don't obey then let 'em have the punishment. It doesn't have to be a spanking. Time-out, grounding, etc. all work just as well. But the point is, you need to CONTROL THEM!!! With my kids, you get one chance. I don't repeat myself, and they know it!edit on 28-7-2011 by haarvik because: (no reason given)

Children don't NEED to be at an upscale restaurant.

Do parents even get babysitters anymore? Why can't grandma take the kids for two hours while mom and dad go to a nice restaurant.
