As a parent of three small children (5 years old, three years old and 1 year old) I'm often in the uncomfortable position of taking noisy kids into restaurants. Sometimes I'm embarrassed, sometimes I think other people should just deal with it (kids are part of life). I never know what the ethics of the situation are. So I decided to ask YOU.

Here are the poll results:

  • 76 percent of you said well-behaved kids are OK. Parents are to blame for noisy kids.
  • 11 percent said children do not bother them in restaurants -period-.
  • 13 percent said kids have no place in restaurants.

Do the results surprise you?
