    Default rhyme time or lunch time?....

    Classic - you are probably the mum this lady writes about on forums who won't make her kid sit still and roams around eyeing off other people's lunches.

    Can you MAKE an 18mth old sit still, can you? really? i dont want her to sit still, none of the kids do. They get up, dance, sing and socialise for 20 minutes. None of the other kids have LUNCHES to EYE OFF. Just this one child.
    I dont go to ryme time to sit my child down to eat.

    Well personally I just hate rhyme time altogether because when I'm sitting there trying to study and mothers allow their kids to come tearing through the 'quiet study area' screaming and yelling and pulling encyclopaedias off the shelves, it's really kinda distracting. Maybe it should be banned altogether and then it will solve everyone's problems with all the other mothers and how they parent their kids and the world will be a happier place.

    Yep - I take my kids to music classes etc and whilst in them they are expected to participate constructively. That's the idea of the sessions i think. teSinging, dancing and engaging in the activity on your spot - I agree it's not there for eating lunch or socializing mums/kids - you can all do that after the 20 mins is up. Just pointing out that a wandering/distracting child can be seen by some (like me) as more annoying than a child quietly sitting eating their food.

    I dont know what the rules are at ur library but our session only goes for 20 mins. We have a small corner up the back of the library near all the kids books. The Mum's there are pretty good at keeping their kids in this one area. I know id make alot of effort not to let my dd roam around the entire library pulling random books off shelves. Thankfully she's too busy with the session to be doing that. Its for 20 mins. If people dont like it then they are free to leave and return in 20 mins. They're not forced to stay. Give the kids some freedom to use the library too, they r only just learning.

    Thats great you can do that. I dont see these kids distracting eachother. I see the kid sitting down eating a lunchbox of food distracting for them.

    I'd like to make friends with that kid, see if he'll offer me some of his filthy big sandwich

    I can see it would be frustrating having it as a distraction.
    Can tell it annoys you by the words you've used to describe the scenario.

    Personally id have a quiet word to the library staff either before or after the next session and ask firstly if its allowed, if its not then hopefully the staff can take care of the issue.
    If food and eating in the library is allowed then i guess theres not much you can do about it
