    I always think of that sign as "parents of pram-age kids" as oppressed to parents of teenagers/school kids/grown up & married kids. That hand written sign just shows someone got their knickers in a knot & had little to be worrying about today IMO

    I have a 2 yr old and a 3 yr old and I use them all the time without getting my pram out. It's difficult to wrangle both toddlers into the shops or to the closest trolley and I love how close they usually are to the entrance. No one has ever said anything to me and I doubt they would as getting my two in or out of the car is obviously such a struggle. In fact I found it so much easier when they were babies in a pram that I probably wouldn't have really cared too much about being near the entrance.

    They should just call them family car spots or something like that...

    But then I suppose technically any person with any family member no matter what age could park there!

    Whoever wrote that note is a knob and needs to get a life.
    If you have a pram, you park in the spot, no one wants to walk a toddler through a car park.

    I quite often babywear, as opposed to using the pram, but will use one these parking spots if they're available. They're generally a bit wider so give me a bit more room to sort myself and DD out. I tend to think of them more as parent with baby spots and think pregnant women should be able to use them too

    And I think that note was rude and uncalled for

    This is why I never bother with PWP parks, there are too many people who become crazy over them. Writing a note just because someone parked there with a toddler? Really? That is just nuts.
    It is a courtesy park, that is all - not a legal right.

    I think that the note writer needs a hug

    Personally I feel it's probably safer for someone with a toddler who wants to walk to use a PWP spot!
