    I have 3 toddlers of my own, I don't want to be chasing other peoples kids when I've got more kids than arms myself.

    The middle one also thought it was hilarious to throw bark at one of the grandmothers who was there with her grandkid and not listen when she asked him to stop.

    Whether she was watching properly or not (I think not) she wasn't in a position to stop her kids from ending up under a car or getting into serious trouble.

    If she was looking at her phone the whole time that's pretty much the same as dropping them off and driving away IMO.
    Kids can go missing (or get abducted) in the blink of an eye.

    That being said, my grandmother used to take myself and my sister to the park and the beach and sit in her car reading a Mills & Boon book because she knew that if anyone strange approached us we'd not talk to them and if they tried to abduct us we'd scream like stuck pigs and get the attention of everyone in the park .

    Default Agh - Parents who sit in their car while their kids play

    Then yes I agree with you - that is not good practice.

    Phew, I thought I was going crazy.

    I actually thought your first post was mocking the usual way Hubbers reply to these threads.

    Guys just remember that this is the same OP who can't stand to see babies in childcare. She probably judges mothers for everything.

    Initially I thought this too..

    But reading the rest of your posts I have to say yeah, bad form. I actually did this the other month, we had done a 2 hour round trip to the airport and back and the boys really needed to stretch their legs, DD was asleep in the car so I sat with her, course I was supervising my children and they were playing quiet nicely, no other parents around to judge me though
