Oh! Sorry that happened to you....but IMHO, the first time a 5 yr old spit AT me, they would be getting a one way ticket home for the day. If you make it the parents problem they will change the behavior! 5 is waaaay to old to be spitting and the fact that they spit AT you is a big sign of disrespect!

I let them know that spitting belongs in toilets. If they have some need to spit... great! Let me just clear out the bathroom for you. They can stand in the bathroom for (whatever amount of time) while they spit in the toilet. "Keep spitting... you can do better than that".

I've only had to do that a few times, and the spitting stops that same day.

It doesn't work with really little kids though, but, I think five is probably old enough.
