My son and I had a conversation at dinner tonight reminding him of how he needs to have his best table manners when we go on our cruise (next week) and he replied "mom, I'll have MUCH better manners on the boat!" Kids.....

Just tell him when he gets together in groups with the kids he meets on board, don't go along with them running in the hallways, and yelling. We will all thank you for it.

He's 9 so he will be with us or in the clubs. No "mob mentality" for him...yet...

If my kids are in hallways so am I. They know better if I'm with them. I hope they always respect!
Stairs doesn't bother me, we are all awake there.

It is annoying. In general, more and more people just have NO RESPECT for others these days. I always feel like I'm the one moving out of the way for other people. Every time I do something in public, I always consider people around me. It really stinks that not everyone is like that. In the meantime, I definitely take control of my 4year olds behavior...especially when in public. I will not allow him to become that tween boy who thinks grown adults should have to make way for him.

Not everyone parents the same though. A lot of parents just think their children walk on water. And then there's the parents who just don't care.

I will yell at kids who are unsupervised running amuck. If they want to call me an old hag, so be it. If their parents want to approach me for yelling at their kids, let them! They will not like what I have to say back. And if a kid is running around like crazy, I will not move for them. And, I have said things to kids behaving like that. Usually, I get a very respectful apology. It's reassuring that they actually are good kids just having a good time.

I have some of these same questions for adults onboard sometimes.

Exactly! No child or parent is perfect. People know what they did when their parents weren't around, yet assume their kids won't do the same.

I wish I knew the answer because the behavior makes me absolutely crazy! As does the talking, yelling and door slamming. We do not even let our girls talk above a whisper when we are going down a hotel corridor, we aleays remind them that people could be sleeping. We also don't let them jump off the bed or run around our room so as to not bother the guests below us. We are trying hard to teach them to think of others.

Oh boy. It's not only bad parenting skills, it is bad daughter skills on my first cruise with my mom...first day at sea.

She was so excited to go out onto the balcony (to let me sleep) left the door open and made fast friends with the kids on the next balcony. "What are you doing today? Isn't this beautiful? Do you like the clubs?" blah blah loud talking! STOP! I bet you all on the balcony's that surrounded us, next doors, up and down were We are talking about 7am.

I love me my sleep in on sea days.

I had to pull her in, shut the door and explain to her... Drink coffee. Be quiet. Don't wake everyone up! Not that I meant don't speak...just talk low, respectfully. Once you start entertaining the kids next door... good lord. No disrespect. Later that day, you could see them looking over for my mom. Oh dear.

My apologies on that first day at sea, early in the morning, to our neighbors, or the entire side of that ship.

She stopped doing it I still tease her about it to this day.

Okay, I'm going to come clean… Besides, given the number of times this happens, and the fact that the only people who've posted so far are those bothered by it, I think it's clear those of us who are guilty are lurking quietly.
So the first few days of our cruise, I walked the hall with my four-year-old and didn't really think twice when he ran or spoke loudly. It wasn't until our third day when I heard kids running through the hall that I realized HOW loud it truly was. You can rest assured that after that our rules changed. You have my sincere apologies for the first few days! Honestly, given my insistence in making sure he behaves politely, kindly and respectfully, I can't believe I so completely spaced out on this one...
Again, you have my apologies and can be assured that this will not happen on future cruises. :-)
