I can't even remember the number of times I was enjoying a nice soak in the hot tub, cold drink in hand, while my children were in the pool, enjoying quite time destroyed by a bunch of children who should not even be in a hot tub based on their age (medical professionals all agree hot tubs are not a good place for young children). Again, another case of lack of parental supervision.
No flames from me..I agree with you.

OP, I think you handled it well. Who knows if the kid just drank a bunch of soda (would not surprise me if parents are letting the 5 year old swim at 10:30 at night, and laughing when he pees in the pool) and round 2 of pee-pee was coming up soon?? Good job on being assertive and nipping that in the bud.

You might think it wrong to correct others people's kids but when I pull them over because of spending or seeing them take a leak on the side of the road which is illegal in the state of Virginia. And yes I am a police officer so if I have to make them squirm so be it. And you have the parents coming to cour saying my son or daughter would not take a leak on the side of street. This officer is just picking on my child. Duh I have you on camera smile !

Every one has the right to agree or disagree. Not be critized on their views.

Again my views. That it folks for me with this topic as it has gotten out of hand. MHO
Since the title of the thread included "What would you do?", I see no reason why people wouldn't comment. Disagreeing does not constitute picking on.

Everyone is entitled to their opinion, and since the OP asked for them, I doubt there was an expectation that everyone would agree.

As a police officer, of course you will correct people that are breaking the law, although the tone of your comments just bolster my already low opinion of NOVA cops.

I wouldn't have said anything, personally, but I'd applaud and support anyone who did!

As for hot tubs, they're kind of gross and I avoid them, children or not.

Even on vacation I always followed an age appropriate bed time. These clueless parents are just that... Clueless.
Perhaps you feel YOUR kids shouldn't be up at that hour, but again, these aren't your kids.

Funny that parents that allow a 6 year old to fall off a third floor balcony can't be called clueless, but parents that allow a five year old to be up at 10:30 are considered so.

You got that right. When we are on property are children at that hour, oldest being 13, are always in the room and very close to, if not alraedy in bed. Very good point

Gee...that's pretty judgmental. How do you know that the family wasn't from the west coast? If they were this may be their way of keeping the child on schedule.

I'm from FL, but my kids were always too wound up to go straight to bed after returning from the parks. Night swimming always seemed to help them unwind and they typically fell right to sleep after a swim.

I'm amazed at the number of people that are sure they know what is best for other people's kids.

My point is, that IMO, no one has the right to correct someone else's child just because they don't like the behavior.
The kid's pee touches everyone in the pool. That is affecting them physically because a moment before they did not have the kid's pee on them and now they do. By this same logic a kid peeing into a bucket then diluting it with water and then dumping it on someone isn't really affecting that person physically.

Dropping dead is a pretty high standard to meet in terms of behavior that deserves a stern talking to.

It doesn't matter whether its a kid or an adult, I have the right to tell someone to stop peeing in my pool.

Sweat touches everyone in the pool. That is affecting them physically because a moment before, they did not have the adult's sweat on them and now they do. Do you yell at adults that jump in the pool after sweating in the lounge chair for an hour? What a ridiculous statement.

And I didn't limit it to "dropping dead", but if that's interpretation, you're welcome to it.

Just where do you draw the line at correcting other people's children? If your child is being loud and obnoxious and giving me a headache, do I get to tell him to knock it off? I'm guessing not.

Bottom line, it isn't up to me to correct someone else's child just because I don't like the behavior, nor is it up to someone else to correct my child's behavior.
Then I'm confused. Would you just allow the same child to come over and pee in the hot tub too? Are you, or anyone else, allowed to have a vacation free of being covered in the excretions of strangers?

Not to be foolish and perhaps endure your wrath but, I don't care what coast your from, after a long day at the parks to have a 5 year old swimming at 10:30 P.M. is questionable at best.

I agree with you too. Kids don't belong in hot tubs.
