Restaurateur Introduces 'Educated Children Discount'
The owner of a wine bar in Italy was so impressed by the behavior of a family's five children, he introduced an "educated children discount."   (Facebook)

Finally, parents have a reason to raise well-behaved children: Restaurant discounts. After witnessing a large family's five children quietly and contentedly coloring in coloring books while the adults drank and chatted at his wine bar, Italian restaurateur Antonio Ferrari decided a new policy was in order, Mashable reports. One of the last lines on the family's check read "Sconto Bimbi Educati," or "Educated Children Discount." In a Facebook post, Ferrari marvels that "it's just so unusual" to see such well-behaved children in a restaurant. He describes them as having "much composure." The family was apparently so pleased with their 5% discount—nearly $14—they left a $30 tip. (More children stories.)
