My 5 Rules for Getting Boys to Behave NOT So Badly

For anyone raising young boys, I’m sure that you can relate to the craziness that can arise at any given moment in your household. Punching, kicking, hitting, yelling, farting, crying, blaming, and shouting are just a few of the observable behaviors that I witness daily. It certainly can become taxing on any parent and lead to our own ugly behaviors in response to their actions. It’s only human that we as parents slip every now and then in disciplining our kids due to what’s going on in our own lives. And boys can be especially challenging, because well…they’re boys.

“The philosophy at Inspired Catering & Events along with the Stefani family of restaurants has always been deeply rooted in traditional family culture.

We are excited to play a part in broadening children’s horizons through their palates. We look forward to joining LDC and assisting in helping them explore new and unfamiliar foods through our dining experiences. We love bringing families together and trust that these first steps will be the catalyst for a delicious new world!”

“A great way for kids to learn and taste different foods in a fun and engaging atmosphere. Highly recommend joining and exploring Chicago with Little Diner’s Crew.”

“It was an absolute pleasure to have the Little Diners Crew visit Presidio. Exposure to a variety of restaurants and types of cuisines was an important part of my childhood and I love encouraging the next generation to do the same.
The Little Diners were attentive and fully engaged in the experience. Our team at Presidio especially enjoyed sharing knowledge about our food and cooking processes with the team.

This is a great learning opportunity for children of all ages!”

Patrick Cullen – Owner of Presidio

“Imagine leaving an adult restaurant proud of your kids… My 5 year old loved it! She tried foods she shies away from with her parents. Dining with contemporaries is a joy at every age and we got to make new friends while the kids answered questions allowing them to open up and share and learn. This is an extremely professional crew. The whole family Loved when we got the passport and credentials to dine!”

Michael Zuker

“Awesome concept and the events are great for the kids (and the grown-ups too). My son and I love Little Diner’s Crew.”

“Bread & Wine is honored to particpate in Little Diner’s Crew because when you broaden a childs horizon or get them to try something different or that they thought they were afraid of through food and they end up liking it! – that can translate positively in all other aspects of their lives.”

“It was a really fun night. Kids loved dining out with friends. I have 1 adventurous eater and 1 picky eater so it was fun to see the difference. I think a group setting made trying new foods more exciting than just being with mom and dad. They also enjoyed how interactive the restaurant was and that they could give their feedback too! A great addition to let adults indulge also- why should kids have all the fun?! This is a wonderful event to join with friends or a great opportunity to meet new foodie friends!”

“My 6yo and I had a great time! I love the chance to try new restaurants and introduce my child to new cuisines and experiences!”

Tracy Shook Carlson

“Thank you so much for bringing your wonderful LDC experience to Portsmith! We truly enjoyed having all the kids and showcasing what Portsmith is all about. It is a genius concept, and proven so by the fact that my son, (who claims to be “vegetarian”) definitely tried everything (actually scarfed down that fried fish slider).”

Lanisa Tricocci

“Perfect for the whole Family!! We really enjoyed our Little Diners Crew Adventure! Not only did my daughter enjoy her food and experience with new friends, she was willing to try new food she’s never had before. Also, my husband and I enjoyed great conversation with the other parents while the kids had their fun! We look forward to our next Little Diners Crew experience!!!”

Liz Gonzalez

“Very well done. Our 4 year old loved it. We will be back.”
