Curb your kids signs?

It was politer than that and in Spanish

Gracias por cuidar a sus niños

Thank you for looking after your children

With all the vitrol that usually comes with the topic of children in restaurants, this seemed like a brilliant idea to me.

Has anyone seen anything similar in other restaurants?

It was discretely placed but in a location that could not be missed.

I think this would even work for the people who do let their children run wild. It might occur to them if they do NOT look after thier children, someone will say something. For those insulted by the sign ... well, good riddance.


1. This Is ONLY about if you have seen this elsewhere and what you think of the SIGN

2. This is NOT about whether you think children belong in restaurants or not. Plenty of threads on that

3. This is NOT about adults behaving badly in restaurants.

Thanks in advance for your consideration of the rules ... well, let's see if that works.

It just seemed so logical to me and I wanted others thoughts as I might suggest that to other restaurants where an incident with children and inattentive parents happens.
