Bad behavior by kids in restaurants is 100% the fault of the parent(s). Unfortunately, the worse the kids, the less likely the parents are to even notice. They’re accustomed to talking while ignoring noise, fighting, bouncing around, kids annoying others. It’s really amazing what kids can do to irritate and annoy other customers and the staff while the parents remain blissfully unaware. Of course, the only thing that’s worse are the parents who take some kind of weird pride in loudly hitting and/or yelling at their kids in the center of a dining room. There are some really violent, dangerous PsOS out there. In restaurants people routinely come up to tell us how well behaved our kids are. It’s nice, but it always strikes us as a bit weird. Shouldn’t the rotten kids be the exception worth noticing, not the rule that everyone expects?
