    Default Train table ettiquette.

    So we're @ myer and DS is playing with the train table. I always bring a couple of trains from home because there's never any there. There are 2 mums walking past glaring at me because DS had 2 trains and is having a long turn. Whenever he moves away from the table I'm telling him to hold his trains or they'll get lost. I don't want him to have to share because I don't want them to go missing. That's fair enough, isn't it? They're not cheap and I don't want to have to wrestle them off some kid when we go. Am I being a train hog?

    I wouldn't worry about it, tell them you brought the trains fro home if you feel the need

    If the trains belong to you then I think it's fair enough!

    Or if he wants to share, explain to the parent that you would like the train back

    They are probably glaring because they don't realise you've brought the trains from home.

    Just don't say anything and then walk off with your DS holding his trains... I'd like to see their faces when they think you're pinching them!

    As a counterpoint I have always told my kids when they take toys anywhere where there are other kids (park, pool etc) they must share. I always make sure the parents of the other kids know who they belong to and when it's time to go have my child ask politely for its return. I've never had any problems.

    Sounds like it all got sorted
