I don’t know what the link was about… buuttt,
Way back, as a restaurant guy for a couple decades,
I’ve found that
9 out of 10 times (well ok 4 out of five) it was the parents who were more of the problem, than the kids.
Somehow you gotta give kids some latitude and most of them will reciprocate with manners - that’s if they were ever taught manners.
But, back to my point so often parents are too buzy fussing and demanding, or constantly trying to imposing some ridiculous (unrealistic) straightjacket behavior from their kids, it’s no wonder it turns into scenes that irritate everyone in the room.
Of course, every situation is different. But, for the most part I thinks kids are given way less credit than they deserve. Especially considering what abandoned* lives way too many of them live these days.
