A Chicago restaurant owner has instituted a policy that kids will behave when in his establishment. His sign reads:
“Children of all ages have to behave and use their indoor voices when coming to A Taste of Heaven”.
Yet a psychologist and mother of three objects in an all-too-familiar fashion.
“I love people who don’t have children who tell you how to parent,” said Alison Miller, 35, a psychologist, corporate coach and mother of two. “I’d love for him to be responsible for three children for the next year and see if he can control the volume of their voices every minute of the day.”
Even more interesting than the newspaper article are the results of a readers’ poll and the accompanying comments. The overwhelming response to the owner taking a stand against unruly behavior has been positive. As it should be.
