As a former educator of 30 years, I know that children respond positively to a set boundary. When done with loving care and concern and with accepted consequences, it can be a win-win situation.
Banning children from eating establishments is not a solution. They need to learn how to behave, and parents must show them the way. Come on, parents, be an example so we can all enjoy our meals.
