    In order to teach kids how to behave in a formal setting, it’s a good idea to start with a formal dinner at HOME.

    She’s afraid to get married again. She told him that before.

    The best type of formal dinner celebrated is WITHOUT kids. My biggest pet peeve is when I’m at an upscale restaurant (NO I’m not talking about P.F. Chang’s or The Cheesecake Factory), but local fine dining establishments, is when idiot parents bring their bawling infants or ten year old’s who run around the restaurant aimlessly. Val should have fed the kids McDonald’s (something the kids probably would have really wanted, because they’re kids) beforehand, and had Evie watch them while she had a nice romantic dinner with Phil. Just my two cents.

    Yeah. McDonalds. That’s a really healthy choice to teach the kids…

    I think these two are well old enough to learn good manners. But I still like to put olives on my fingers!

    Phil is the one who invited the kids…..
    It’s nice he wants them to be part of his celebration They are old enough to know manners.. I am trying to teach my 10 yr old and it’s going pretty good considering he eats in his room most of the time .

    +++1000! Nothing I love more than paying $100/plate(plus a $200 dollar bottle of wine) for a nice adult dinner and having it ruined by some brat two tables over. What the h_ll ever happened to manners?

    I think I was blessed. Growing up we had Miss Manner’s nights. We’d prepare dinner (so we got cooking lessons too), set the table formally, put dinner in the oven to keep warm and go change. Shoulders back, no elbows, formal manners, dinner topics were limited, lowered voices. Everything prim proper and in place. Years later when mom remarried, Dad took us out to dinner almost every Saturday evening to some of the best restaurants in town. Miss Manner’s nights got my parents compliments every time.

    When my grandson was 7 my daughter and son-in-law took us to The Melting Pot, a very upscale restaurant, and my grandson impressed me with his very good manners. I’ll brag on him any old time.
