When we dine out (from McDonald’s to fine dining establishments) we notice two things.
1. Parents who totally ignore what little Jane and/or Johnny is up to. For example: running around the restaurant, chasing each other; making loud shrill screams; arguing with parents; fighting with siblings; tormenting each other OR
2. Parents who have taken the time to instruct their children on how to behave when in public. For example: no fussing; no tantrums; staying put.
The children in the second category have also been instructed on how to chew their food with their mouths closed and, if old enough, to use and handle their cutlery correctly. They DO NOT throw their food around.
More to come…..
