    Wow, that is so rude op. Of course your friend should be able to park there if she has a young child. Some people are nuts!

    At least you're honest.

    I was cranky this morning (as I tend to be on 4 hours sleep) as whenever PT gets mentioned it's seen as being too hard, or too unreliable, or the kids are unmanageable. Lots of reasons.

    But the more kids travel on it the better behaved they get. We travel off peak once or twice a week and the kids love it. Do I love it? Not really but I want my kids to learn it's a part of life. Coming from inner city Melbourne it's my background so I'm more prepared to make it work.

    Drive if you want. But don't complain about parking that's just something you have to accept as an inevitable pita.

    It's ok to complain about parking, just like It's ok to complain about public transport when something goes wrong!

    My DS just loves public transport. We sometimes catch it just for the sake of it. It's a nightmare if you need to do anything on time though, It used to take me at least an hour just to get to work. I lived 15 mins away at the most.

    I honestly don't see why parents with prams (for pre-walking kids) need to park any closer to the shops than anyone else. I would rather a group of spaces further away from the shops, but with larger widths for getting kids, shopping etc in the car easily! I only have a 3.5 year old at the moment, but I think it is more dangerous walking across the car park with him just holding my hand, than an infant strapped into a pram seat...

    I guess I don't agree. PT is a pain when something goes wrong. If you have to park a few rows away from the entrance? What's gone wrong there?

    It's just safer being closer to the entrance. There's the possibility of somebody reversing and hitting the pram, there are morons who don't know how to drive in the middle of the road, instead they drive to one side, closer to pedestrians.

    I had a guy start reversing the other day without even looking. Lucky I'm very alert when I'm not in a PWP spot. I stopped before anything terrible could happen.

    As far as I'm concerned (Nd I haven't rèad the other posts) if you have a child with you who is younger than primary school age you are free to use them - regardless of if you re actually using a pram or not. I also include pregnant women in that because they often need to park closer simply because they're exhausted! Lol

The person who wrote this about the PWP space was just having a whinge so they need to relax a bit IMO.
    Ahhh... Stuff the note I would have called the RSPCA/cops.
