We give them toys to keep them busy, and they do well for about 30 minutes after which chaos breaks loose. They begin screaming and throwing things and make it very difficult for us to finish our meal much less enjoy conversation with other adults who may be with us. It's very embarrassing, and I generally end up leaving the restaurant with them. How can I be more proactive about this problem?
