    Default Playground etiquette

    Hi ladies

    Just wanting to get your opinions on this.

    Would you apon arriving at a playground with your children go up to someone elses children that were happily playing on a piece of equipment and tell them to get off because your children wanted to play on it ?

    And

    What would you say/do if someone did that to your children ?

    Oh hell no. My children would be told to wait and share and if anyone ever dare say such thing to my children they'd have another thing coming to them.

    Wrong just wrong!

    If someone did that to my child I'd probably stare at them, dumbfounded for a few seconds, then I'd tell my son to ignore them and play as long as he wants!

    Yeah I didn't think it would be something that a normal person would do.

    This happened to my kids and nephew yesterday

    My sister and I were so flabbergasted we didn't know what to do. We did tell the kids if it happened again to tell the woman to go jump and to call out to us.

    My dp said she's lucky he wasn't there, he would have torn her a new one.

    Some people are so rude !

    Just wanted to add that we were sitting at a picnic table when that happened. The kids were playing on the equipment by themselves. I think I would have slapped her if she'd said it when I was within earshot.

    No, I would not.

    I'd probably say "You can't be serious? My boy is playing here now, your kids can have a go in a minute".

    If my kids want to play on something that other kids are playing on, I tell them to play on something else until it's free. If somebody told my kids to get off because their kids wanted a play I would be pretty annoyed.

    If my kids are hogging the swing, I will tell them to let other kids have a go. My kids. I get to tell them what to do. I would not demand other kids to do so. I expect their parents to teach them to play fairly.

    No way at all! I would tell my children to wait until that piece of equipment was free and just find a new bit to play on.

    If someone said that to my daughter I would have a few words for them and they wouldn't be very nice ones.
