You have invited a family of 3 for dinner. While the parents are educated and well behaved, their 8 years old son is a devil. The parents are doing nothing to stop him and he is wreaking a havoc.

I agree with your way of doing it. This is an opportunity for all to learn respect for others and their things.
No need to complicate things. I appreciate your dilemma in the East. But IMHO, a spade is a SPADE, in the North South West & East. THEY are rude not YOU! God forbid we hinder this kid's "freedom" to be a BRAT. "Old-fashioned" IS the smart way!
Yes you have a point there.
So in the end what are you teaching the child...that he can do anything that he wants to and he thinks that it is OK to disrespect everyone else. What is that child going to become as an adult... Oh the terrors I see.
