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

    Can't say I would sit in the car myself, but I would probably be on my phone sitting on a bench nearby which I guess isn't a great deal better! Keeping in mind DS is 4, and quite responsible... And only one of him.
    I don't think I would judge unless the kids were causing trouble and not being reprimanded by mum for poor behavior, or of course they were in danger.

    It depends on the age of the kids, like pp's have said.

    If the car is parked right next to where the child is playing and the parent is watching and the child is over 4yo, then I wouldn't say anything.

    If there was a toddler involved, I would take it upon me to watch the child. If I had to leave before the toddler does, I would walk upto the parent and tell them to go supervise more close or risk getting in trouble with Docs.
    I mean, people get in trouble for leaving their child for less than 5 minutes in a car in the shade, windows down, etc.
    I think this would be a similar situation. Especially when the parent is playing with their phone so they're not fully supervising the children.

    What if the child falls of a climbing frame or something and hits his/her head? The child could be out cold and those 2 minutes could be the difference between life and death. Sounds dramatic, maybe, but its the truth.
