Make a sign stating that the guy ropes are wired direct to the mains and that one touch could prove fatal. Put the sign up in front of your tent and underneath it put a smaller sign stating that you are not responsible for any loss or damage.
It might not work but most parents will find it amusing enough to remind their kids to be careful.

Get loads of fake dog poo from a joke shop and put it in strategic positions around your pitch, they won't want to be walking anywhere near it then

That's okay until you come to pick them up when striking camp, you pick them up and find some dogs have left the real McCoy in amongst them!

Sometimes on busy sites if I'm there for a while I use a few poles & tape to keep people away from my guys.

Experience enables you to recognize a mistake when you make it again.
Everything has been said before, but since nobody ever listens we have to keep going back and saying it all over again and again and again
