Would you love to teach kids to behave in your restaurant?
It’s never too late to teach kids how to behave when they go out to eat. You can start early as age 2 to teach children manners when going out to eat at restaurants. You can teach them to speak quietly at a restaurant. Of course if a toddler is taken out to dinner past 6 pm they may become fussy as they will mostly likely be tired and cranky. Not a good mood for them, their families or others around in the restaurant.
Many adults may not enjoy having little ones nearby yelling or screaming nearby as they dine. It can keep them from returning to your restaurant in the future, no matter how good the food may be. Many adults go out to eat for the ambience and taste. They may be tired and just want a peaceful meal. A great meal and service is what they desire and a screaming child can ruin that in a matter of moments.
If you do like to have children at your restaurant be sure to have toddler chairs, coloring books, crayons, portable DVD players and the like to keep them occupied. Having your food served in a timely manner will also assure that the kids of all ages don’t get too restless and loud. That way you don’t have to be one of those restaurants that have started to ban children at their doors. If you really know your customers you will be able to accommodate them with their children and keep your other patrons happy at the same time. A real win-win for your restaurant.
