Thriving in the Midst of Chaos: Parenting With Special Needs Kids

Nov 14, 2019

Episode 9: Is Eating In Restaurants Worth The Stress?

In this episode, we discuss our experience eating out in restaurants with our special needs children. We converse about the amount of food and table items thrown on the floor, the salting and peppering of the table (ours and other people's), the yelling, the running, and the fussing. We talk about the places we have taken the children to eat and how poorly it has gone. We chat about how covered in food we are and how covered the children are. We converse about how many children are usually in our laps. We discuss coping with going out to eat with children. We talk about how we handle the waiting times and how we keep the children busy. We also discuss if we as parents ever get to eat or taste our food.
