As a parent and Chef following this discussion I have to comment. Wehavebeen taking the boys out since they were old enough to " up straight."Yes we started withthefast food places and worked up to the white tablecloths. Early on welaid down the rules andmade them listen. No it` not the Hitler methodbut the rule is if they get out of hand, food or no food we pay the billleave a good tip and depart. We have never had to do it and we have goneto some of the nicest restaurants in the country with nary a crumb onthe floor. The point is it` the parewnts responsililty to keep theirkids in control. If we see parents kids getting out of hand andrunnignin the streets we gwntley remind them that they will be chargedfor any damage. Yes we have lost some customers but it has also kept theregulars.
