I’m generally opposed to watching TV and eating, as I’m sure most parents are, but a couple of weeks ago, we had lunch out and our waiter, after taking our order, brought out a portable DVD player loaded with a cartoon for K. Actually he had brought one for L, too, but that was a bit ridiculous and I sent him away with one.
So, of course K was intrigued and thrilled.
It was the first time any of us had eaten at a restaurant that provided this type of service. As expected, it kept her entertained during the meal, in her seat, and eating (for the most part). I’m on the fence whether this is a good thing or a bad thing while eating out.
What do you think? Would you say yes to this type of service if offered?
