What do you do about unattended children in you salon? Do you allow it? Do you have signs posted about it? Tell us what YOU do about kid control.

I really don't like when people want to leave their kids in the waiting area, I do have signs that say do not leave children unattended, most people don't bring them , i do have a handful that bring kids that are old enought to just sit there and watch the waiting area TV.

I do have a sign up, but several bring their kids in, most of them are fine and sit still while watching the tv, some bring their gameboys, others drive me nutz...I try to politely tell them they must sit down without offending the parents. If I have a problem I will turn the parents bed off and tell them to take care of their kids. Only had that happen twice in four years

buntanner: so you turned the bed off? Did the parent get mad? Did they keep coming to your salon? A lot of times the parents want a break so they'll leave their kids for you to babysit while they tan. I can see where this could be a problem for some people.solid

True. You can't just not allow it - most women do enjoy the escape. As long as the kids know how to be respectful it can be smooth sailing. I do always let someone know when the line has been crossed, civially & professionally, but I do not let the problem just go not noticed. You can only take so much!

They didn't get mad at me, but they sure gave the kids what for... and yes the continued to tan with me, and the kids didn't act up anymore when they did come. Most of the time the parents tell me that if they act up to turn the bed off or let them know... Like i said I only have turn it off twice in four years so that isn't too bad.
