It seems that people are too politically correct to vote. I love kids; it's just if I go to a restaurant it really spoils the meal if there is a table with kids really SCREAMING. The parents really should have some control or go as it's unfair to the other people in the restaurant. You agree?

Children are a reflection of their parents until they are old enough to be held responsible for their own actions.
I would tell the waiter, leave and call the restaurant manager... maybe even name the restaurant on Yelp.

In the good ol' you could tell the parents. But now days, adults fear backlash. An 'offending' is an excuse

I voted on your poll. To hell with PC.

I also listed screaming children on my poll, "Sounds That Make You Cringe"

I voted get up and go, and I'm not afraid to say I would...
I won't have my time spoilt by the plague of casual parenting that facilitates this behavior... I'm not saying it's the kids fault, bucause a responsible parent would make an effort to control the situation... Take any fast food outlet, and that's fair game, it's core clientele is supported kids, and noise comes with the territory...coolo...
A planned night out in a restaurant with friends / famy / date should have the entitlement to being civilized and measured...
I'd be an advocate of adult only eateries...and I'd pay for the pleasure of it...
You're damn right, political correctness has shut down common sense and common decency and the right to reply...
Good thread topic, let's hope it encourages debate...

First I would approach the parents then I'd speak to management.

You really don’t know why the kids is screaming in the first place it could be many reasons, if the manager not saying anything so why should that parent have to leave when she payed her money like everybody else, that’s her right unless the manager willing to reimburse her

Sure if it's MacDonalds - who gives a shit?

However, if you're going to a GOOD restaurant with quiet background music, wonderful company (your date from CS) and great service then the people with screaming kids have no right to spoil your evening. I once went to a restaurant for lunch with my then wife and little boy and he started playing up. We left immediately.

No, you are wrong. Just because you pay you do NOT have the right to ruin somebody else's night out.

It doesn’t matter what restaurant they are at, the parent still payed there money, unless it a sign on the door saying no kids aloud, and it wouldn’t bother me if the child is hollowing I know how to ignore

I couldn't care less how much the parents of the screaming kids paid for their meal they should be told to keep their screaming kids quiet or leave the diner.

Well, we live in a democracy and you are perfectly entitled to your view but I'd suggest we come from different cultures. In MY culture it is really frowned upon to allow children to behave badly in a 'posh' restaurant and a good establishment would have 'quiet words' with the people concerned and ask them to leave if they didn't control the situation.

THEY DO NOT NEED A SIGN........just as there is no need to put up a sign telling people not to piss on the floor. Some restaurants won't allow children under a certain age and therefore might have a discrete sign to save gently turning people away but then many people don't read that good. In some restaurants you can get thrown out by the chef/owner because you have dared to complain about the food - in that case the screaming kid is in the kitchen!

In fact it is not pleasant to have kids screaming even in a fast food chain but as you are only there to shove food down your gob and leave a.s.a.p. it's no big deal.

Thanks. But I also think we ARE here to debate and exchange views.

I respect your views even though I beg to differ! cheers

Just don't bring your screaming kids into the restaurant where I'm eating! tongue

If I ever saw a single parent struggling when the child was throwing a tantrum whilst drinks and food were flung to the floor..I would get up and go help that parent..I would clean the floor instructing them not to worry just concentrate on their child.

Suppose to help people or at least be patient instead of worrying about your own guts.

Now I understand why America is so farked up..Can't blame it all on Trump.

Thankfully mine were never like that , gee what a challenge . I think I would have to had a very keen eye on my boys when were from 8-10 had they seen something like this , option 2 would have been a real risk from them .

Its a part of life and quite normal. Annoying as it is, you have to accept it and realize that the parents are probably feeling lower than you can imagine for letting their kids cause such a disturbance.

The only time I sometimes come across screaming kids is when I'm doing my groceries.

I'm not into eating out..When I go out with my gym gals we usually eat at home before we meet up.

That's a nice thought but I thought single women always ate in McDonalds (okay, that was really nasty of me, but that's like saying Serena Williams was punished because she is black and a woman and ugly).

The same rule applies - don't take your kids to a decent restaurant where people are paying for the atmosphere, as well as the quality of the food, if you can't control your children!

However, a mother in distress who is doing her best to cope with an unruly child would be lucky to have an angel like you to help her in her hour of need. That's a side to the argument I didn't really think of. Most people with screaming kids don't make any effort to calm them down and don't appear to be the slightest bit embarrassed - it's like the lady said in a previous post 'they are paying their money so why should they give a shit?'

Nothing is black and white - is it?

Many single parents work who are able to afford what any other person are afforded when eating out.

FFS we don't bloody know if our child is going to carry on and stuffed if I would allow any bastard to dictate to me where my child and I will bloody eat because dim sims can't stand noise when it comes to their guts.

My son never played up I was lucky..I will always stand up for those being looked down upon.

Well, when my son played up we left out of respect for the other customers. It only happened the once (anyway, we couldn't afford to go out much).

When I was a kid my parents used to put the tablecloth over my head in a restaurant and I'd sleep - I was a little angel as a kid and only got nasty when I grew up!

A couple of months ago I went to a restaurant where a kid was running around screaming. I felt like offering to take the child out to play - with the traffic conversing angel

Children are prone to losing it when they're tired and hungry. Surprise, surprise, that sometimes happens around mealtimes.

Rather than adults getting all tantrummy and uptight about it (children will pick up on your vibes faster than an Olympic sprinter) maybe they would respond better to a little distraction.

It sucks when kids are more clued in and perceptive than the grown ups. Gotta stay on your toes with the intelligent little shits. laugh

This is what I was trying to say merc....to make my problem the parents problem would just be trying to control my environment and those around me who are in it....the dislike here would be mine and anything short of me leaving would be making my problem other peoples.....bouquet

I agree about the distraction - hence offering to take them out and play with the traffic angel

Yes, they pick up the vibes really well and love the attention they get when screaming. i suppose if they are ignored they eventually get bored but that's only when I've had my main course and trying to decide whether to have a dessert or commit suicide with chop sticks stuck up my nose. sigh

Let your children run wild and free in Mcdonalds - you can be your natural, lazy and default self in Mcdonalds. There's nobody to impress and no intention of making a better life for your kids in Mcdonalds.

In a fancy restaurant things different and be your best self takes over. Too much time, money and effort has gone into that food, you can't just throw it at the wall.
