1. Have a kid friendly meal option…hamburgers, hotdogs, chicken nuggets and fries are far more appealing than Chicken Cordon Bleu, and are often less expensive for you so you save a little on the food charge.
2. Have activity books on hand…coloring books, crayons, etc all help keep little ones entertained during dinner time.
3. Think about having a separate room for the kids with activities, tv and most of all maybe a couple of paid child care providers. This mini daycare might be just the ticket to give the moms and dads you invite a true night out.
4. Have a special kids only dance and a daddy/daughter dance
