Kids these days

Seven Sins of dining out with kids - Slashfood

You'd think the French Laundry were overrun with unruly brats, the way some people love to rant on and on about how their dining experiences have been ruined by the contemporary scourge of kids in restaurants.

Perspective, please.

I've lost count of the number of places this argument has been hashed and rehashed.

This was a memorable discussion, however, from a slightly different point of view.

You lost me for a good while there while I read through those links. Absolutely fascinating, thank you. There is a lot I want to say but fear I am missing much needed sleep.

Ooh, can't wait to read. I love taking both sides of this debate, depending on who's on the other.

And thanks for your comment and bottle "help." I reposted an experience not too different from yours. Kindred spirits.

I don't know how much help my litany of failures was, Mom-101, but there it is. My little refusenik is nearly five now and not stunted in the least, mentally or physically. My husband and I, however, are still suffering the consequences.
