Your child is stomping in the puddle.

Do you say "Please don't stomp in the puddle. You are splashing my face with the water"?

From a language perspective, "you are splashing my face with the water" is fine.

From a physics perspective, I would think that your face is probably the least likely part of your body to get wet since it's the farthest from the ground where the puddle is.

From a parenting perspective, you might want to not say anything and just let the kid have fun.


What you said is understandable. I think it would more likely be said this way:
Please don't stamp your feet. You're splashing water in my face!."

So, I think the word "stamp" is more likely than "stomp". It's probably not necessary to mention the puddle, since it is at the center of the action.
