Okay, I have to say that when I first heard about this I was appalled. How can you ban a child from a business establishment like a restaurant I asked myself? Isn’t this some form of discrimination?
I can see why some restaurant owners would consider doing this. They want to create a quiet, relaxing atmosphere for their customers and a screaming, kicking child at the next table is no way to do this.
I am a mom of three kids and I can honestly say that any establishment that would ban my kids WOULD NEVER see a single penny from me. I take it personally when someone would single out a child(who cannot speak for themselves) and ban them from a public place.
There are well-behaved and not so well-behaved children out there. Why ban ALL kids because of a few temper tantrums, etc? I think things should be dealt with on an individual basis. If there is a kid causing a disturbance, ask the parents to take them outside until they calm down, or create a little distraction like colouring sheets and crayons.
I know that if it was my kid causing a ruckus in public, I would immediately remove them from the situation. Kids will be kids and we have to be respectful of other people as well as our own children.
My view? There are many places you can go if you want to be child-free for an evening out. Banning innocent kids from business establishments is NOT the answer.
