This is not my first-hand experience, but my friend told me she and her grown daughter and granddaughter were in a Cracker Barrel. At a table close by, a mother was with her little girl and what my friend assumed were the child's grandparents. They all thought it was so cute for their little girl to climb up on the table and begin tossing plates. One fell to the floor and broke, and they were laughing about it. This child is learning that the world revolves around her. We all know that children can cause chaos, but to encourage it ... well, I just think it's really sad.

And this has what to do with knit or crochet? I’m sure there is a grandparenting forum available for your complaints.

That’s absolutely terrible. My grandchildren were all taught how to behave in a restaurant. They had to use “restaurant voices” when talking.

Should be in GCC but hay ho - who has been injured? Life goes on even if a KPer posted in the wrong spot - get a grip. Don't like rude kids either - usually they have rude parents.

Children are not the only ones who are rude, bad mannered and UNKIND, just read some of the remarks here.

I agree, so what it's posted in main instead of general chit chat, easy mistake, certainly not life threatening. Much to do about nothing. I get a fair amount of snarky replies myself, just consider the source.

Children learn by what the see..I wonder if it is a chaotic atmosphere in that household..Hopefully restaurant staff intervened...

That is so aggravating to other diners when that happens. This child will have a hard time when she gets older and is required to sit still and behave, such as when she goes to school. My grandchildren were taken out of the restaurant when they were small and couldn’t behave themselves. They were also taught to sit quietly in church and other places when it was required. So sad for this child in the long run.

Agreed that this should have been in General Chit-Chat but the title was so obvious, one doesn't need to even read it if they are only concerned with knitting and crochet.

Obviously these parents and grandparents need to improve their parenting skills! (Or maybe shouldn't have procreated in the first place!) This is way beyond how to eat in a restaurant. You didn't say how old this child was, but would be inappropriate at any age!!

Children without manners ❗️😱❗️☹️👎🏻❗️

Parents who bring them out in public should be ashamed, but I actually think they are proud of their little brat boogers acting badly. So sad.😣

Apparently their parents were never taught manners & If they did learn any, they didn’t retain it in their little🧠s..

Putting your topic in the wrong category, 🤷🏼‍♀️❓sorry the category 👮🏻‍♀️👮🏻‍♂️scolded you.

It’s irritating what parents of young ones today, & let them get away with doing. When I was young, you did as you were told & behaved or you weren’t brought anywhere❓🤷🏼‍♀️❓

I had to jump on this one. My ex and I brought our then 1 yr old daughter to a restaurant who was sitting quietly eating. At the next table over I noticed a mother and father and their 3 year old. The little boy swore at his mother, grabbed her chin and punched her in the face. They didn't do anything. My children knew if they acted up anywhere, the shopping cart with food would be left and we would go straight home and they went to their room. Some people should not be parents!!

Get a grip, your Post is rude and not kind and you are NOT nice.

The substance of the post IS relevant, albeit it was simply posted (in the wrong place).

You had a choice to go and read it or pass it over and you read it. So why did you bother?

obviously you had some interest, so why then rank on the poster, better to keep your mouth shut!

I don’t think this is the norm, most all the children I know do know how to behave but also having had a child with behavioural issues I know how hard it can be to go out in public and feel judged when it doesn’t go to plan. I have both taken my daughter home and raced to finish my meal so I could get out of there, not excusing bad behaviour but sometimes there’s more to the situation
