Transcript for Should restaurants be able to ban bad kids?
The question today is did you see the story about the restaurant that said only well behaved children were allowed in? Did that upset you? I did see this. Let me start. This was a national food chain that posted a sign saying only well behaved kids were welcome and disobedient children will be asked to leave. Many called the sign insensitive. Others praised it. After the backlash the chain had to issue an apology saying the restaurant's manager and team were disciplined for putting up the sign. It raises the fish bowl question of can restaurants ban bad kids? I say -- What do you think? This was a fast food chain. The first thing that ran through my mind is every parent is just trying to get the job done in a day. Right. If you're at a fast food chain to get your kids fed, you're just trying to get something done. It is so easy to sit there and judge everyone around you. I myself do to lift myself up as a parent. There are times you look around and you say I would never let my kid -- and then it happens to you. You have to look at parents struggling with kids as they're in more pain than you are right now. Anything you can do by not judging, by not starring, by offering to help --if you're in a five-star elegant restaurant, that's a different thing. Michael -- Throw down the $10 and let the kids wild out. Let the kids wild out. Hold up. So to me -- okay. What if the person in there can't afford a $100 meal? They don't deserve the same respect as from your kid as somebody going for the $10 meal? Are you trying -- No. My thing is this, forget about banning the bad kids, ban the bad parents. The kids won't come with them. How many times have you gone to a place and you've been somewhere and people don't pay attention to their kids? They let their kids do whatever they want to whoever they want. The kids can throw French fries at another table and they don't pay attention. To me that's wrong. If you don't teach your kids respect out of house, they won't have respect in the house. I have a counter point. Sorry, keke. I don't have kids. You don't know what's going I was one of those people. My dad looked at us and you were like I'm good. You were so scared. My dad would have walked us outside and I don't want to describe what happened. You would have got your butt whooped. Yeah. We were in line. Max and I came into parenting that we are going to be disciplinarians. We are for the most part. There are days you break down and you can barely get through and you're just trying to feed a child. I look at it through a new lens everyone I see is fighting a journey I don't know. Parenting is the toughest job you'll ever have. Give forgiveness and move on. Eat your French fries and quit judging me. Ask for a seat in the back. You're Michael Strahan. Get out of the fast food chain. Go eat somewhere else. Then there's that. Now I can't have a fast food meal because your kids are bad? If it's got a play land -- You know, I'm like this, discipline your kids. Take care of your kids in public. Make your kids respect the space of other people. That's going to be better served in the long run. That's all I'm saying. You should visit more, uncle
