The Today Show had an interesting segment on a topic that I think readers of this Baby Blog might have an opinion on: businesses that do not allow children.
Apparently, more businesses are creating policies that prohibit children, especially restaurants. The theory is that people who come in without kids are likely to linger and spend more money than parents who can't stay long while their child's tolerance timer is ticking. Furthermore, people who are not parents don't have the same budget constraints as parents do and have more money to spend on themselves at the restaurant. That all makes sense, but it is it a good business model?
What do you think? Would you support a business that does not allow kids, or not? Here's another question to chew on (borrowed from the Today Show discussion): would you pay more to fly on an airplane that was guaranteed not to have any children?
