If your child is too much of a handful for you, then please consider hiring a sitter during your vacation. Leaving your child to wander aimlessly throughout the hotel is not recommended, especially when said child has a creepy fascination with serial killers from movies.
When this child asks for scissors and I deny the request, and child becomes very angry, my decision in denying the scissors is quite vindicated. Same is to be said for when I deny the child a glass bottled beverage to “throw at mom” because “it would be fun,” and child becomes quite displeased.
Perhaps if parents watched child, or had someone in line to actively watch child, (not the Desk Clerk) child would not want do engage in dangerous activities that could result in a murdering rampage throughout an innocent hotel.
Just a thought. But I don’t have kids, so maybe there is something I’m missing.
