While mothers are traditionally accredited with the hard work and dedication that comes with raising a child, recent trends have shown that a steadily increasing number of fathers have been taking on more active responsibilities at home. Despite this notable change in the stereotypical role Dads play, they still remain overshadowed members of the family with most of the spotlight going to their formidably powered counterparts. It is important to acknowledge their efforts whenever we can, even through simple gestures such as treating our supermen to a sumptuous meal.
With Father's Day just around the corner, show your appreciation to our unsung heroes by treating them to a fancy dinner at these children-friendly restaurants. Not only do they serve scrumptious dishes fit for royalty, but these restaurants are also fully equipped with plenty of toys and play corners to keep your little one fully entertained. Of course, these restaurants are perfect for any other occasion, no matter big or small, special or ordinary.
Now the two of you can finally dine together in celebration of parenthood, undisturbed by the incessant needs of your kids requiring immediate attention.
