I really do not understand how the world has come to tolerate the awful behavior of children but I am glad this restaurant owner stepped up.
I have seen things from children and their parents in restaurants that just bewildered me. A family of five seated at a table with baby in a high chair. The three children threw all their food on the floor and it was just a mess that we had to walk through. The parents were completely oblivious to it all. Now if all three of these children were autistic, it was still the responsibility of the parents to pick that garbage up and proceed to feed their kids to keep the food on the plate. I was just disgusted. I don't think that it is responsibility of waiters and waitresses to clean up a mess that was deliberately thrown down. And you know they didn't get a tip.
I don't think there is as much autism as there is lack of discipline. You separate the careless parenting from the parents who truly have autistic children and there wouldn't be the great numbers we think there are.
I'm thinking that if a kid cannot sit down and behave because they have ADHD then what good does do him/her to be brought into public where they disturb other people? They are not gaining any social skills or growth. So why bring them out to restaurants? Get a babysitter or something. Take them to water parks, regular parks, playgrounds and such where they can run around freely as much as they want.
