Out To Eat: Lessons and Advice

A common lament from new parents is that since they have had kids they rarely go out to restaurants. They hesitate to take their children out for fear of disturbing other diners, potential picky eating disasters, or some other unmentionable outcome. Some parents feel that children don't belong in restaurants and look askance at those of us who bring ours along. Well there is a way to do it so that everyone is happy. You just need to know what to expect and how to cope.

Check out my guest post on Mommy Poppins (a website devoted to great New York area activities for kids) for ways to manage restaurant-going with your little ones, from newborn to preschool. Introduce restaurant outings early and it should be a breeze.
