I have two boys, one almost 3 and one 10 months, I started my family late,I` 38, and this is my husband` second family, he will be 60 on Christmasday. You cannotexpect your children to behave if you don` take them out from little onto REAL restaurants (McDonald` doesn` count) My 3 year old eats out withme and has since he was in a baby carrier placed on the top of thetable. We would have breakfast at a deli 3 times a week and he wasalways well behaved. He was Expected to. Children tend to want to liveup to your expectations, so if you only take them to kiddie places wherethe kids are allowed to climb on the tables, that if exactly what theylearn. If your baby fusses, by all means walk the floor, but with alittle preparation (for a young baby, have them well fed, go at a timewhen they are rested and take teethers and baby food) there is no reasonwhy your baby can` be a good diner. I always get compliments (yourchildren are so well behaved) like everything else in life, it` what youput into life that you get out and it is well worth the effort to trainyour children how to be a joy to you and other people and be happythemselves!!! Happy dining!!!
