True or False?


LOL! for me it was kind of true, which is why i havent been out to eat at a restaurant in years. i put mine in high chairs though, so i didnt have to worry about them crawling under the table. but, one of mine was always so impatient and hated sitting in the chair, so she'd thrash around after a certain point and make a scene.


shopping, on the other hand, is not a bad experience. my youngest is so used to going that she sits happily in the cart patiently. if i have to bring all 3 though, then it's hell.

  • My mom told us. You train your kids at home, like you want them to act in public. (as in eating at a restaurant).

    My kids at an early age sat, ate, no playing and any other stupid stuff.

  • DS was actually pretty good the couple of times we went out to a nicer restaurant when he was a toddler. I think I even got to eat my whole meal a few times. :)

  • Sometimes I think it was easier to take a toddler out than it is a five-year-old. She doesn't scream and make a scene, thank God, but she squirms and wonders when the food is coming and tries to monopolize the conversation. Ugh!

  • My DH who never had kids of his own has zero tolerance for noisy kids. He talks loud enough to be heard about the parents not being able to control their kids. Meanwhile I'm shushing him, and shooting him dirty looks, It's sooo embarrassing. That's one of the reasons I don't go to restaurants anymore. He has a lot of good traits, that's not one of them.
