Your friends' awful kids

I have a couple of friends whose kids are just ANNOYING. They are spoiled, behaving bad almost all the time. The point is that whenever we see each other, kids are around... when going out for a walk, having lunch, or visiting each other.... and the kids presence and behaviour irritates the hell out of me. So far I have been keeping quiet because I know how people react on critics about their kids, in most vases nobody likes it, even if they don't show it. It's a very vulnerable area. How do I deal with this? Have you ever had the same experience?

I have had people come to my house and their kids do not act appropriately. When they are in my house I have standards. I ask the kids to stop climbing on my furniture and they stop. I ask them not to interrupt when the parents are talking. They try, but I repeat myself only once, they wait. Maybe the kids have underlying problems that you don't know about. Just suck it up and enjoy your visit with your friend. The kids won't be kids forever.
