A Washington couple were left stunned after their server handed them the bill for their family's dinner - and they saw they had been given a $4 discount for their 'Well Behaved Kids'.
Laura King and her husband took their three children, aged two, three and eight, to an Italian restaurant in Poulsbo to enjoy an early-evening meal last Friday.
As they tucked into their feast of pizza, pasta and mushroom ragu, the family discussed planets, racecars, zebra jokes, and commented on the warm decor of the restaurant, Mrs King said.
'They were just being their normal selves,' she told Today.com of her children. 'Our server came to our table and just really thanked us for having exceptionally behaved children.'
After the server brought them a bowl of ice cream to share, they received the tab - and saw it had been discounted by $4 for 'Well Behaved Kids'.

Awesome story. Pics of the lovely family at the link.
In some cases the brats are the parents. Wonder if Chuckie Cheese will start some sort of disount program for parents that don’t get into a dust up.
I bet the parents know how to spank.
Awesome! I wonder if they charge 10% for misbehaved kids? :-)
All we ever got were compliments. I am biased but I have to admit that my children were and still are very well-behaved, particularly in public. Mrs. CommerceComet deserves most of the credit.
I remember being a hyperactive tot when my grandparents took me to the lunch counter in an old W.T. Grant store. There was a sticker on the children’s menu that said “We Love Kids!”
When the waitress came to our table my grandmother pointed to that and asked her “So, do you love kids?” This waitress, who was obviously having a bad day, flashed me the look of death and snapped “Only if they’re good!”
Scared the living crap out of me. I was on my best behavior in restaurants for the remainder of my childhood.
I live in this area. I know the restaurant well even though I haven’t ate there for many years. I will be going again soon. This is an awesome idea. This is a much better idea than a belligerent child surcharge which I have advocated for.
Our local Chuckie Cheese limited the sale of alcoholic beverages. This has seemed to calm down the patrons.
Can’t wait to see the +$4 on the bill that says “poorly behaved brats” and the subsequent outcry and lawsuit.
Cant count how many times been disturbed in public by annoying brats and the idiotic “parents” who refuse to control them .......
One of our local restaurants banned children under 6. Caused white a flap, but it seems the vast majority of patrons supported the idea. The owner says that since the ban, business has quadrupled.
I took my grandson to Chuck E. Cheese once. I endorse Ambrose Bierce’s definition:
Once: Too much

Beautiful family. Mom’s a real looker.
Ahh...limited as in no more malt liquor I presume
Good to see. I would also support an extra surcharge for unruly children. Recently while eating out, my family and I were “treated” to a family dining with children who considered the restaurant a playground, all to the laughs of the parents. At one point one of the children ran into and broke off a piece of the window blinds, while the parents did a slight gasp and said to the child “It’s ok, don’t worry about it”. If I were the owner, I would have added the cost to repair or replace the damaged blinds to the bill.
That’s because so many other kids are undisciplined, spoiled, selfish brats who will grow up to be good democrats.
For the past 6 years, I worked as a docent in a museum and historical site. Never having worked with children before, I had no idea how horrible they can be! School groups came through hundreds at a time and the teachers and chaperones just let them run wild. Parents did the same! After a few months, I said it was a good thing I had my children before working there or they would never have been born! (I totally realize it’s the parents’ fault they are so incorrigible. My children weren’t angels, but they were not allowed to act like that and they knew it!)
