At the end of the day businesses get a decent slice of revenue from the parents of these children. Also people who go out in public to eat should expect the unexpected. If you want to be all uptight about kids making noise sit at home and watch breaking bad re runs with a banquet meal. It's like driving. You are going to run into some crazy freaks on the road right? That's the risk you take when you leave home. I know it's a tough world! I'm sure that the kids are likely crying about the ugliness of your date'a face but we can't enforce that one.
Dining out is supposed to be a pleasant experience; why would anyone PAY to be annoyed? If you just wanted to eat, you could do it at home or go to a drive through window or belly up to a trough. We pay for the experience and quality of the service and ambiance as much as the quality of the grub. When the experience is not satisfactory, we stop patronizing that place and seek others that give us what we want and expect. If we desire a serine and pleasing environment, we gladly pay for it. We DO NOT have to tolerate any annoyances when WE are paying for an expected, advertised type of service. When a place says it will be smoke-free, cellphone-free or kid-free, that's what we expect to get for our money. The small number of places choosing to exclude kids will not in any way seriously limit the vast number of places available to kids. I guarantee, no kid will starve due to this policy.

True. But at least the great majority of adults in a restaurant don't scream, throw food and tantrums, talk extremely loud nonsense constantly, run around under servers feet and try to get you to pay attention to them when you were planning on a quiet evening.
And don't even get me started on the parents who bring kids under 8 or so to R rated movies.

The 'market' determines the success or failure of almost every business. When enough people who dine out CHOOSE to spend their money at a place where they know there will be no annoying kids to disrupt their dining experience, that business will do well. Money talks..........
IOW, irrespective of what anyone says here, some people will foment hate for something that is none of their business.

I predict that barring any loudmouthed protests, that business will do exceedingly well. What's sad is, those who protest this have no skin in the game; they will be more likely NOT 'regulars' at the restaurant. Some people need a life.

A mother said she and her children were booted from a Texas restaurant after she changed her baby’s diaper at the table.

Miranda Sowers was visiting Brother’s Pizza Express in Spring, Texas, with her baby and two daughters, ages 4 and 8. When her littlest needed a diaper change, Sowers said she found no changing table in the bathroom so she made the swap at the table.

“I thought you know what I’ve got my own changing pad, she’s tiny, she fits right here on the chair,” Sowers told KVUE.“So I laid her down quickly and quietly changed her diaper.”

Restaurant manager Donny Lala said other customers started complaining about the smell.

That's a really stupid question, but I'll throw out an answer: The story is about the RIGHTS of a business to serve a target market, not corner a market. None of us expect to see any fast food joints take up banning children as a sound business plan to make millions. BUT, any family, mom n pop business that wants to exclude kids, cell phones, homeless people or any other annoyances in order to create the serine and relaxed ambiance their chosen clientele expect, has that right. Everything in business is NOT VOLUME. One can make a good living selling QUALITY. And knowing you can go to a place and luxuriate over a fine meal without a bunch of whining, crying, snot-nosed little bastards, will influence a LOT of regulars and new patrons to this and other businesses. We may feel like a bunch of sheep most of the time in most places these days. But this is still The United States of AMERICA; and there are still SOME freedoms left. The free enterprise system is not dead yet.

There's s difference between discreetly breastfeeding an infant, and exposing a whole room to the disgusting odor of a diaper full of feces. A mother's (or father's) responsibility is to handle the needs of their child in appropriate ways. Changing a diaper on a park bench is one thing, but doing it on PRIVATE PROPERTY where others are trying to enjoy a meal is completely different. If you don't get this there's something seriously wrong with you and you had better smack your mama for not teaching you any couth.
