    He's 11. They do that.
    Well, that's why I decided not to have too much to say as I wasn't certain of what actually happened. Not a big deal.

    If the kids weren't using it as a weapon then I don't see the problem (and I think I will probably end up being a helicopter parent ). I used to play with sticks when we went bush walking (like a big wizard staff, I was so nerdy), and it was a bit of harmless fun. Regardless, even if I wouldn't let my kids do it I wouldn't abuse another parent for allowing it That is so rude

    Probably not but I wouldn't tell someone to take it off their kids.
    Unless a child was in immediate danger, it's not my place to say anything.

    No, we don't let our children play with sticks. It's dangerous. In fact, my BIL is actually completely blind in one eye thanks to an incident with a stick when he was a child, so we are paranoid about sticks
