    Yes, its true that some of the cheaper restaurants serve children, though in their defense, properly prepared, they can be quite tasty.

    Couldn’t kids be kept in school 24/7 until about age 21? Call it the 24/7/21 program. I think it would make shopping a lot more peaceful, as well as dining. Write your congressman.

      You cruel, insensate, cold-blooded fiend! How could you suggest such heartless treatment of poor, innocent teachers!

      • Stripe says:

        I suppose you are right, Fireflight. Hadn’t really thought that one through… but don’t those people *like* kids? Maybe a little hazard pay would help. I’m flex.

    I like those restaurants where you can pick your own small child in the tank.

    As a parent of a small child, I must say I’m delighted at this correlation.

    You could also switch the axes, suggesting that this is a “chicken or the egg” problem.

    Do families with small children flock to cheap restaurants because of the low prices -or- are restaurants forced to lower their prices in order to combat the negative impact that having small children around has on a restaurant’s desirability?

    There is no correlation between small children and restaurant prices. I’ve been in a very expensive restaurant, and 2 parents brought a toddler with them to the restaurant.
