As the father of a 6 year old and a 15 year old, I have the pleasure of being clueless and a god all at the same time. I have raised them to respect other people and thier property. I enforce this whenever I am present. When I am not present, I have no idea. I can only assume they are following my lead. All I can do is lay the foundation and reinforce it when I can. Kids want to know their boundaries, they want to know someone cares, my favorite line with my kids is, "If I didn't care, I wouldn't say anything."
I see un-supervised groups of "kids" acting out, being loud, shoving, slapping boards, skiing to fast, to close, to out of control, every day i ski. I look at these kids and say to myself, "I was probably just like that at @sshole, when I was that age." It is their little brains adapting, all be it nervously, to social situations. When confronted (in a courteous manner), they will usually comply because a person of authority has requested them to stop. I have done this several times and most all comply.
Maybe another factor is that thier parents do not ski, or ski separately. Then the law of the jungle is invoked. Lord of the Flies. If they are not told what to do, how to act, what is courteous and what is not.. then they will continue to do as their group see fit. Then the question is, does if fall on the shoulders of the other adults to inform these “pubescent” free sprits as to what is commonly considered acceptable and what is not
I will continue to say something, not because I care about some "kid's" sliding experience, wellbeing or safety, but because I DO care about my families, sliding experience, wellbeing and safety.
