The link below is an article about kids peeing in Public in Hong Kong by mainland Chinese tourist. When you got to go you got to go and yes there should be some leeway for kids. But if you are in mainland China on a village similar to my wife’s family then it is common practice. It has to go somewhere. Some of the road side stands or BBQ or small restaurants will tell you to go outside. I thought I have seen it all in China people peeing when natural calls. We were riding on the highway and after exiting to the first stop light a truck driver got out of his truck at the red light and went pee right there on the side of the road, I had to take a photo because I thought it was funny at a stop light. But when you gotta go then go! Travel safe and Travel smart.
