If I’m honest, you’re right, I would never take my kids to an expensive restaurant full of adults having date nights. (It seems like a nightmare, and a waste of money!) But I’ve also never been to an expensive restaurant and seen kids running amok, probably for that reason. I’m not sure it’s as common of a problem as people think?
But I appreciate that you’re the kind of person who chats with kids in store and parks! Thank you for that :)
