    I'm 100% that I'd rather have a well trained dog sitting at the owners feet than a wailing, screaming, tantruming child throwing food all over the place.

    i see this all the time, not just in restaurants. the first time a child misbehaves in public is the time to deal with it. not allow them to stay and continue. We took our 4 children out to eat regularly when they were all little. NEVER did I ever have to leave a store or a restaurant due to their behavior. we left because we were finished eating our food. never left a mess never had a temper tantrum anywhere. the first time was dealt with immediately. no discussion no negotiations. that isn't how it works. too many times I see parents negotiating with their child. ?if you... then I will...." no way! and we always left a tip if it was a sitdown restaurant.

    we actually went somewhere not long ago and as we got to the table I said... umm, not here. I didn't want to sit next to children while eating dinner.

    I completely agree with you that parents need to deal with their child's misbehavior in public right away. Negotiating with them only reinforces the idea that they can get away with acting out. It's important to set clear boundaries and consequences from the beginning to avoid any future incidents. I also understand your frustration with sitting next to children while eating. Sometimes it can be distracting and take away from the dining experience. By the way, have you ever heard of Cuisine at Americas Restaurant? They have some really interesting recipes that I've been wanting to try out.

    We don't go out to restaurants but our own dogs wait lying down until we finish our dinner, they know that they will get something afterwards.
