King Family Gets $4 Discount for Behaved Kids at Restaurant

Laura King and her husband took their three children to the Sogno di Vino restaurant in Poulsbro, Washington last Friday.

According to, the Kings were stunned after their server handed them the bill, which included a $4 discount for their "Well Behaved Kids."

"They were just being their normal selves," Laura King told "Our server came to our table and just really thanked us for having exceptionally behaved children."

King wrote on her blog: "A pleasant surprise after a lovely meal" with a picture of the discounted receipt, which was also posted on and became an internet hit.

Rob Scott, who owns the Sogno di Vino restaurant, said he often offers complimentary desserts to families with well-mannered children.

Scott told that the King's children said "please"and "thank you" and stayed in their seats during the meal, which was unusual even for the best behaved kids, so Scott added the discount.

"Sogno di Vino means 'to dream of wine,'" Scott said. "It doesn’t mean Chuck E. Cheese's. We love Chuck E. Cheese's, they do a great job. That's why you go to Chuck E. Cheese's, so the kids can play."

On her blog, King also wrote: "We eat most of our meals as a family around our kitchen table. It is one of the ways we come together throughout our week to talk about our lives, to catch up and to share our love."

"Our kids are also encouraged to pick up on general etiquette at the table. That same etiquette occurs when we’re out at dinner. We don’t expect handouts for acting respectful of the folks who bring us our food. But it certainly makes you feel good when someone else notices your kids in a positive light."
