Comments continue to roll in from last month's discussion on children's behavior in restaurants — most of them positive and all of them agreeing it really is a parenting issue if your enjoyable meal is interrupted by a live episode of "Kids Gone Wild."
"I just read your article about dining with kids and I have to say I agree!" writes Stevie Bowyer. "You're absolutely right it's a parenting problem and I was happy to see you included some excellent tips I wish every parent would read and follow before dining out with their children.
"I have four children, ages 12, 10, 8 and 5. When I'm solo and take them all out to eat I, too, get the looks of disbelief, dread and/or amusement on our host's and server's faces. As a fellow server myself, I understand what they must think seeing a woman with four kids in tow.
"But more often than not they also 'do me proud' and we receive compliments on their good behavior."
Way to go!
