Unruly Children - What do you do?

Seems like kids out of control is a popular pet peeve ... How do you handle unruly children that don't belong to you.  Especially if the parents are turning a blind eye.

LOL ask them if they can swim??

Unfortunately I do or say nothing unless the kid pukes on me. If the kids are unruly then most likely the parents are as well. Why get into a fight. If anything discreetly ask security to handle it. The problem with that is..... They wont...

Is it still illegal to sell them at a foreign port?

Report them to a staff member. They are trained in how to handle this situation.

I agree ... especially if they are doing something unsafe!

Staff will not assist.

I've had the opposite experience on Princess ... and they usually do it by stating safety issues so the parent is somewhat forced to comply.

Is this a trick question? Will this have many verses like what do you do with the drunken sailor?

I agree with BAK, report them to the ship staff. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't

I have done this and it worked. If the kids are totally out of control I will tell them to get away from me. Usually works.

I've done that too ... especially if it's in a quiet area of the ship.
