A kid-friendly perspective: From the time my brother and I became parents, we understood the need to make our restaurants more family-friendly. We started with little things like tumbler sippy cups, handing out onesies and bibs, and putting changing tables in the bathrooms.
Why homeschooling works for them: My dad always said he didn’t want to watch his restaurants grow, he wanted to watch his kids grow. We wanted to have flexibility to travel as a family. The kids go to school once a week for six hours and then a tutor comes three times a week. The rest is intentional parenting, where we make it a point to do fun, educational stuff when we travel.
Go-to kid spots in Anderson Twp.: Scene 75. Beechmont Rollarena. Recreations Outlet. Our parks out here are amazing; Woodland Mound and Juilfs Park are a couple favorites. Sky Zone when it’s raining, and a ceramic pottery place called Doodlin.
Whole-family fun: As a family we go over to Vineyard Golf Course. They’re very kid-friendly and usually not too backed up, so there’s time for the little ones to putt around.
