Ooh, yes. My kids are grown now and not perfect (like mom) but they had no reasons why they couldn't behave, and so they were expected to, especially in public.
Back when I was still with their dad, we all went out to dinner with a friend of his and his friend's family. My kids were sitting there, listening or quietly talking, but the friend's kid was all over the place. She would play in the aisles, right in front of the waiters, and at one point she even climbed into the booth behind us, pulled herself over the partition and onto my ex's shoulders, then climbed down his body onto our table! Her parents just thought it was cute. My kids were freaking out!
