I forgive the kids

While I agree that kids should be respectful and reminded the running in the halls and making noise in the halls in not a good thing, I certainly can understand their excitement that they may forget their manners from time to time. They are kids and I can forgive them for those lapses in consideration.

What I wont forgive are the adults who think that lines do not apply to them! There have been a handful of times both on cruises and at Disney World resorts and parks that adults are guilty of budding to the front of the line - you all know it - "I just have a quick question" or as if they don't see you as they walk up and stand right beside the front of the line.

Kids learn from the actions of parents and adults - parents and adults need to start setting better examples and teaching children how to behave considerably.

Oh, and to all the adults that I have had to remind where the back of the line is - you are welcome.

If only we could all remember what it is like to be a kid. getting so excited that we can't control ourselves. I was so excited to be on the Fantasy last month it took everything I had not to do cartwheels down the hallway I think adults have to remember that they were all kids once too.

Unrelated to a Disney cruise, a few years ago my parents and I were travelling together with our dogs. The hotel we stayed at was dog-friendly, but made us sign a form stating that if there was excessive barking from our dogs, then they could kick us out of the hotel. We didn't worry too much about it since our dogs aren't excessive barkers and are very well behaved for the most part.

Well, there was also a soccer team of girls ages 10-13 staying in the same hotel. And I don't know where their parents were, but in the middle of the night the girls woke us up by running up and down the halls screaming and giggling. And it wasn't like they were just running past us once on their way from their room to the elevator. Nope, they were playing in the hallways. Running back and forth and back and forth and back and forth.

Of course, this noise really upset my parents' dog, so he would bark at them! And we would tell him to be quiet, and he'd stop barking. But then as soon as he heard the girls again, he'd start again! We were so worried we were going to get kicked out of the hotel!! And we didn't think it was fair because we signed a paper saying they could kick us out if our dogs barked, but the parents/supervisors of the soccer team didn't have to sign any forms saying they could get kicked out for making too much noise! And those girls were the only reason our dog was barking in the first place!

Actually, I don't think this is a bad idea at all!

Yup! My DD gets so excited about certain things and while my DH doesn't say anything, I am more apt to tell her to Calm Down, Chill Out, etc, to not be disrespectful to other people...

Did you report the noisy girls to the front desk? We had similar problems at a motel near Disneyland so we called and complained. the front desk called the chaperones' rooms and they immediately took care of the problem.

The kids running down the halls 24/7 drove me nuts, esp when my little one was trying to nap or sleep. Every night it sounded like a herd of elephants were rumbling up and down the halls until about 2am. The kids also ran up and down the stairs non stop but no employee or parent ever told them to stop so they didn't. We had to tell a couple of kids to stop playing in the elevator (repeatedly making the door open just before it closes) and we got looks of death from them, they were 7-9 years old.

Don't they get that people are asleep at every hour of the day on the ship, late into the mornings, naps in the afternoons and obviously at night? Somebody please explain this to me.
Usually they're chasing me........

That feeling should be under control by the first evening, and definitely by the last night. I told who kept running down the hallway every night after midnight that I was going to report them to guest services if they did it again. It is posted in the navigator asking people to be quiet in the hallways between certain hours as a consideration to other guests. Unfortunately too many people think it is their vacation and they are going to do what they want with this, as well as the other requests DCL makes.

There was a group of kids on Deck 6 near our cabin who kept doing this. It was obvious who they were b/c we were Aft, end of the hall.

My husband finally poked his head out one afternoon and asked them to stop since both my kids were trying to nap. They stopped, but I was surprised that it had gone on for days and it didn't seem to bother anyone else.

Anyway, I guess I'd just ask the kids to stop and if they didn't, I'd figure out their cabin number and report them to Guest Services.

Now the kids running on the deck above That I can't do anything about I guess.

I always enjoy the "parenting" threads.

Running in the hall, running around the pool deck, touching food with their hands on the buffet line, pushing ALL the buttons in the elevator, not covering their mouth when they sneeze, talking with food in their mouth, chewing food with their mouth half open, phrasing every sentence like it is a question, interrupting adults when they are talking, sticking gum under their chair, sneaking into the adult only area, peeing in the pool....

I could go on and on about people's kids....

It always makes me wonder if people every take their children out in public. I would be embarrassed if my DD ever did some of the things you mentioned above. And she would KNOW that I was not happy...

Well my point was kids are a work in progress. Each child is different and we all have our own parenting challanges. And we all have different things we, as parents, view as important, very important, not as importand not important at all.

I've also learned to not judge a parent/child that I don't know. We don't know the situation. We had a couple from our chuch adopt a foster child that turned out to he a terror. He was very 'disturbed' and you don't parent a child like that the same way as one you raised from birth. Sometimes single moms (or dads) have their hands full just trying to keep junior off of narcotics and porn and 'running down the hall' is just not a battle mom choses to engage in.

Off the wonder a week ago and I must admit it was the worse cruise for kid behavior. There were tens running all over the place nearly knocking and definitely scaryijg some older adults! Then at 7am there were young kids running up and down the halls. I know some people are up that early especially with early port days but some are still trying to sleep. So please try to be quiet and not yell down the hall!
