How to confront adults who insult children?

Home More advice Kids

What is a polite way to let an adult know they have said something that isn't appropriate to a child? I've been in situations where I've heard adults around me, in a social situation, tell children (not their own) that they are "stupid" or an "idiot" and stuff. I think this is very rude and harmful to the children. Is there a way to tell them this isn't proper behaviour without coming off as offensive?
