Default Family Gets Restaurant Discount Thanks to Their Well-Behaved Kid

A family in Canada got a special surprise while dining out for Mother’s Day brunch on Sunday: a discount on their meal, simply for having a child who didn’t terrorize the dining room. Carino Japanese Bistro in Calgary presented the reward on the bill, which included the itemized line “Well Behaved Kids” and $5 off the $54 total.

Reddit user “looseONtheGoose” posted an image of the receipt online, noting, “Out for Mother’s Day brunch today with our one-year-old daughter, when we received our bill.” The post quickly received more than 48,000 upvotes and nearly 3,000 comments, digressing into topics from the state of dining taxes in cities around the world to the menu items at Carino. (In response to a question about the Okonomi Waffles on the bill, for example, the redditor explained, “It had pork belly, a rich brown sauce, a poached egg, cabbage, fish flakes and a sprinkle of magic that made all those ingredients taste amazing together.”)



Yahoo Shine reached the redditor, Daley Welsh, who says the discount came as a lovely surprise. “I feel it was just a really nice gesture,” he says, “and it really made my wife’s Mother’s Day special, affirming her hard work as a parent for the last year.” Carino owner Toshi Carino tells Yahoo Shine in an email, "We welcome the kids and wanted to show some appreciation for kids (of course for parents!) with dining manners." She adds that Welshes were a "beautiful family" with a baby who was impressively "calm in the crowd."

Welsh describes the restaurant as a small, 35-seat eatery that has no room for strollers and is “not the most kid-friendly place.” Still, he and his wife, Alicia, frequented the place for dates before having their daughter, Evie, and they had a hankering on Sunday. Luckily, Evie was having a good day. “Our daughter is like most babies,” Welsh says. “She has her on and off days. We avoid taking her out if she’s fussy.”

Not all parents are as mindful, which leads, from time to time, to angry public standoffs. Last year, for example, a family dining at a Texas Applebee’s made the news after their rowdy kids prompted management to call the police. Other stories include a family being kicked off an airplanes for having out-of-control children, a Washington café facing backlash after shaming rowdy pint-sized customers on Facebook, and some restaurants deciding to ban children from its dining room during peak hours. A recent Harris Poll found that America’s No. 1 pet peeve is parents who let their little ones run wild in public.

So it’s understandable, then, why some establishments might be inspired to reward families for good behavior — something that also happened in Washington last year, when a family with three polite children aged 2, 3, and 8 received a $4 discount from Sogno di Vino. "We don't expect handouts for acting respectful of the folks who bring us our food,” mom Laura King had written on her blog at the time. “But it certainly makes you feel good when someone else notices your kids in a positive light."

It’s the same graciousness echoed by Daley about his family's Mother’s Day surprise, who assures Yahoo Shine, “I won’t expect the discount the next time I dine there — even if [Evie] is being just as sweet as she was yesterday.”

I don't have a child yet but it if I'll ever have one, I'll be the proudest mom ever for having a child as behaved as that. It shows the upbringing and the parenting that anyone can see unbiasedly.

This should be a proud mother her child was well behaved. I always see some kids in those restaurants I go to and they act like a mess and the parents don't do anything.

I think this is great! I love love loove children, but I know what it is to feel like you're "losing your mind" because a little one who isn't given the right kind of discipline etc at home, displays behaviour that is borderline "demonic", if you know what I mean, lol.
On the other hand though, it is an absolute beautiful and welcome breath of fresh air when I observe a child who demonstrates so much self-control for a little one, that it is definitely a "sight to see", and something that we, as adults, ought to emulate!

I like that this restaurant rewarded the parents of this little one, for doing a great job with parenting , shown by their child's warmth and "restraint".
I can just about imagine how much "trouble" other little ones have caused in this and other restaurants, much to the distaste of other diners and customers, and that can surely change the profits of ANY food chain. It can turn off potential customers, and can result in the perception of the standards of that restaurant being severely downgraded.

Parents need to groom their children with the right principles, and do their absolute best not to demonstrate aggressive problem-solving methods in the home, which is probably what the more aggressive children are reflecting.
