Kids are sometimes loud. They cry. They scream. But does this mean they shouldn't be allowed in restaurants? 

One Northern California restaurant has banned strollers, high chairs and booster seats from its dining room. A sign outside the restaurant in Monterey says "Children crying or making loud noises are a distraction to other diners, and as such are not allowed in the dining room." The owner says if you don't like the rules — don't eat there. 

Saskatoon Morning asked its audience the following questions: What do you think: Do young kids have a place in restaurants? Do you think they're a distraction to your dining experience? Do you take your kids to restaurants?
