I'm sure that this is welcome news for both parties, as it creates a win-win situation for everyone. With enhanced features to provide a more conducive environment for families to visit, this will certainly make the task of bringing out the kids very much easier.
Strollers for rent, supermarket trolleys masquerading as kiddy cabs to keep the kids entertained, more changing tables, nursing rooms and amenities, as well as indoor playgrounds in malls and restaurants - shopping and dining out is made relatively easier.
I personally prefer to go to places which have family friendly features. In fact, I found that it wasn't all too difficult bringing BabyMoo out since he was one month old, because most malls and places have basic pro-family features already in place. The provision of changing and nursing rooms were made mandatory about fifteen years ago, and since then, new places which have sprouted up over the years will have these facilities. Even the older malls have taken the initiative to provide at least a changing table in the restrooms.
Since there is the additional incentive for businesses to provide more in an effort to create a more family friendly environment, what additional pro-family features would you like implemented?
