And when I do they apologize for catching up with family. (Still not an excuse even if true.) Most people are smiling, polite, and considerate.

But then I (understandably) don't go in the summer heat!
We took some friends with us. When entering the que some people got in before us and left the rest of their family behind to enter after us. The people in front of us said oh there with us about the people behind us. Our friend said oh you want to ride together? To which the reply was yes. Our friend said ok you can go behind us to be with them. Funny thing is they didn't move back so I guess they really didn't want to ride together.

Thank you for a much-needed laugh this morning!

Hardly the first time I've heard or experienced that.
I am sorely tempted to say "They must not care much about you if they couldn't wait for you." So far I've been able to resist...

TSA story = as it sounds like kid was fine with the attention & the family took it in stride.

As far as parenting other kids go - - it takes a village & all that. I ask my adult friends to help with DD. She needs to know and understand that other adults have the authority to redirect her when she is making bad choices.

Stranger kids are more challenging. I've found that the mom glare and a softly spoken "stop" is effective. The suggestion to get a CM is good but sometimes things more too quickly to find staff & involve them. The other thing I've tried is looking a kid causing trouble in the eye and asking "where are your parents?" It is amazing how quickly kids can decide that they need to be someplace else.

This IMO, 💯 percent required notification and intervention of a lifeguard.
Should this have gone badly it would be lifeguards responsibility...if nothing else lifeguards deserved a heads-up to the bad behavior.
