I would have spoken to the adult that was with the child, rather than raising my voice to someone else's child.

I think what the OP did and said was fine. I didn't get the impression that he was trying to embarrass or humiliate the child. He didn't want to be in the hot tub with a child who's urinating in the pool was condoned by a parent.

As for not correcting the children of others, sorry, but if your kid is acting like a jack wagon and you couldn't be bothered to do anything about it, I'm going to say something. At the very least, you might get off your cell phone and tell your kids to scream at the ducks elsewhere and not at the table where another family is trying to eat lunch.

For your kids, maybe so. For mine, no. When our kids were small, they loved doing the E-nights at the Magic Kingdom, and we sometimes didn't get back to the room until 1AM or later. If we're out having fun as a family, and my kids are having a great time, why should you care how late they're up?

Nothing questionable about it, IMO.

How about approaching the parent first?

Again, you are being presumptive. How do you know the kid was at the parks that day? Maybe they just got to WDW that day. In the kids mind it could be 730.

At least now I know the parenting parameters...

Kid falls off third floor balcony because parents aren't paying attention - don't judge the parents, accidents happen

Kid stays up past 9:00 PM at WDW - judge the parents to be questionable and clueless

Be honest, do you really think a parent who is allowing their child to act like a beast is going to say, "oh, thank you for pointing out how ill-behaved my child is! I'll be sure to correct him straight away." No, you're going to get the adult version of that kid.

I thank you as well, thought I was being nasty. But when you consider how much more we pay to stay at deluxe so we can sit in a hot tub at the end of the day, the least we can expect is a little quite time while we sit and let our muscles TRY to recover from the days endless walking and standing in line. Will still always love our time WDW regardless

Actually, you have no idea what will happen. I'm with you on being sick of parents not making their kids behave, but I don't take it on the kids, I call out the parent(s).

OP, you were spot on. I would've probably thrown a fit in the pool to be honest. But, you handled it much classier than I would've. I can not stand people who pee in the pool. Whether its a child or an adult, its never acceptable.

And outsiders have no way of knowing how you made this work for your family.

I have a friend who turned late EMH into a new day for her kids. They would get up early, eat breakfast, and hit rope drop or Am EMH if available. Then they ate lunch at around 11. After lunch,they headed back to their resort, and swam. By 2 Pm the shades are pulled and the whole family lays down to sleep. The kids are given cereal when they wake at around 6 or 7 pm. Then they head to the night time EMH park. The kids are refreshed, and they usually play the night away.

When they do this, they sleep in the next day, and usually hang out at their resort relaxing, maybe hitting an in park TS for dinner.

It works for them, and it's really nobody's business what time other people's kids go to bed, especially when they are on vacation!

We'll just have to agree to disagree on this. I don't consider telling a child politely but firmly that he/she needs to move away from my table is taking anything out on that child. I'm just trying to enjoy my meal with my kids. My vacation is just as important to me as it is to the mom who can't be bothered to parent her kids.

I think you presume too much. OP didn't say they raised their voice to said child, simply pointed out that they heard what the child said previously and that it wouldn't be acceptable in the hot tub. And I think OP also already established that the parents either condoned or accepted the child's behavior. Why waste your breath with them?

Yep we'll agree to disagree. I parent my own kids, not other people's kids.

And I totally agree with you on this. Who cares how late the child was up? Letting your kids stay up late while on vacation does not =bad parenting.
