Restaurant Bans Children
A Pennsylvania restaurant has prohibited diners from bringing in children under six years old.
Parents will need to find a babysitter if they want to dine at McDain’s Restaurant in Monroeville, Pennsylvania, according to Yahoo. Owner Mike Vuick has banned children younger than six years old at McDain’s. The reason? He says it’s not a place for young children and that the little ones have disrupted customers in the past. Vuick expressed that he doesn’t have anything against kids, but their screams at dinner are “the height of being impolite and selfish.” It seems more restaurants are following this trend, with a North Carolina restaurant posting “Screaming children will not be tolerated” signs. Vuick believes that this move (which is legal) will increase business, but some critics say that parents are being discriminated against for having young children and that the blame should be placed on loud adults.
What do you think? Should children be banned at restaurants?
