OK, back off topic again. It's really sad that when you disagree with someone it turns into a personal attack. I went back and reread what I wrote just in case I missed something. I did say I agree with the the point of misbehaving children in restaurants. The arrogance I refered to was being told where I can and cannot take my granddaughter. I don't think any less of him, just don't agree. I am glad to see there are people on this website with class that just post a difference of opinion, thank you Cheryl, and don't make it a personal thing. BTW I believe my granddaughter is much more well mannered than either one of you 2.

As always just my opinion,

Well then maybe I'm the arrogant one. I still say a child should be expected to behave appropriate to their surroundings. Don’t take a child to a nice restaurant if they can’t or won’t behave. In return you can expect the same from adults when they’re around children in a “kid friendly” restaurant. It’s just a matter of respect.

Thank you rodman. I appreciate the compliment.

I agree she probably is, but what about having class and just posting a difference of opinion? Never mind, let’s get back to the topic at hand and discuss “adult RV parks”. Places we can go and not have to find if your granddaughter is better mannered than both of us. tongue.gif

Sometimes I camp with my grandson and sometimes I don't. I do expect him to behave anytime that I have him in any public place. I understand that sometimes small kids can have a "meltdown" in public that can't be controlled, however, if that occures I always remove him from the scene. I don't want to inflict screaming 2 year old tantrums on anyone.

At times when we camp without him, we frequently ask for an adults section of the campground. When I'm on vacation, I want my peace and quiet.

All parents (and grandparents) need to do is be aware of how their and their children's behavior is affecting the people around them and use consideration. This in turn will teach the children a valuable lesson about how to treat others.

If you find a nice clean park with no playground or pool, generally no kids. There is a park in Hermon Maine (just out of Bangor) like that. They do not restrict children but precious few stay there because there is nothing to do. The campground id immaculate, Wi-fi at $1 and is very good. Check the reviews here for Pumpkin Patch cg listed under both Hermon & Bangor Maine.

As far as kids in restaurants, again it is the parenting issue. There is no need for them to wander around. When one of my grandchildren started to get out of hand, they were taken outside. As they got older they were still taken out but for what our daughter called an "attitude adjustment". Not spanking though. It always worked.

I sure hope someday I have the pleasure of meeting you, who knows maybe in an upscale resturant with my granddaughter. I am a new grandfather and you know what I believe parents have the right to take their kids anywhere they want. I agree that it can be anoying but I'm sure you as well as I can do some things that are pretty anoying as well. Kids are a fact of life and if I want to go to an upscale resturant with my granddaughter I sure as you know what will.

Again just my opinion,

i am a new grandma (young),kids in resturants don't bother me it's old people blowing there noses at the table ,give me a grandchild crying any day the a gift from god!!!

Sorry, but I had to add my two cents regarding grandkids.
Both my husband and my self have previous marriages. My sons were the first to have children and of course, the grandchildren are typical children...cying when tired, loud at times, whiney some times when things don't go their way. At first I felt uncomfortable when they were toddlers would act up, I didn't want my husband to think they were BRATS even though I knew they were just regular kids.
My husband said it never bothered him when the kids were naughty but I still wondered.
I told him to wait until //// or ///// had children and they'd be the same.
Well, sure enough the next year ///// ------had a son and I since then he's demonstrated on numerous occasions that he can be just a naughty as most kids can be from time to time.
Toddlers are not easy to reason with !!! We never took them to "fancy" restaurants because were in our opinion too young to really appreciate it. No matter where they're taken by us or their parents, if they act up, they're taken outside. Sometimes that worked and sometimes we just left with doggie bags in hand. Why make the experience miserable not only for other patrons, but also for us and the child!!!!

There I feel better now wink.gif

Thank you Standoris! That is considerate!

I once had to put up with a kid behind me kicking my seat during an entire plane flight. The flight attendant wouldn't do anything, the mother with the kid just said, "it's a kid, ignore him." Just because it's a kid means *I* have to put up with my seat getting kicked? I think it was more of her excuse to be a bad mother.

Several weeks ago we spent 4 nights at a wonderful park (Katherine Hanna Park) on the beach in Jacksonville, FL. We got a site close to the bathhouse and it had a concrete ramp. Kids were skate boarding on it constantly and slamming their boards down on the concrete making a heck of a racket. They even did this during the rain. We were mostly gone during the day, but the kids obviously didn’t know and or care about the noise and neither did their parents. They were bothering at least 6 or 8 sites. I have seen kids and their parents not respecting others more times than I can count and we usually try to stay at parks not catering to children for this reason. I love kids, had them and was one myself, but when I camp it is my right not to be imposed upon by kids running through my site and generally taking away my good times. I blame the parents more than the kids, but I am the one losing my much anticipated time at the campground. Florida is filled with 55 plus campgrounds.

let me start by saying i don't go along with children, grandchildren or anyone getting out of control in a restaurant, campground or anywhere.
i just want to help out the parents and grandparents a little. i do construction for a living. there is noise around me all the time i got used to it. the skate board parents, there kids probably do it all the time. their parents probably don't even hear the racket. they are used to it .i live in the woods and ride four wheelers with my kids and grand kids. when one of the other people around take their four wheeler behind my house it doesn't bother me. i'm used to it.
again i will say i don't agree that these people should be able to let they're children run around like nuts. what i'm saying is in some instances the parents/grandparents might not realize that the noise is bothering someone.
i am not telling anyone to get used to it. i'm just giving a reason for the lack of response by the adults.
by no means should anyone bring a four wheeler or skate board into a restaurant. biggrin.gif
that said can we get back on the topic of adult campgrounds. i think that was the topic anyway. unsure.gif

Again just my opinion,

The shame here is that the original poster asked in a polite fashion for references to adult only parks. She should not have been jumped on for asking how to enjoy HER rv experience. She said nothing to warrant a snotty reply like this.

I agree with your sentiment, but even the reply that was quoted is now two years old, why bring it up now?
