    Yeah I've only ever helped when a child has had a big fall or really hurt themselves I don't even go to my own kids if they've had a little stack and are totally fine. I would never pick them right up always just help them get to their feet and look around for a the parent

    No, I don't mind at all. I usually give a smile, a wave of the hand and a thankyou.

    Now I realise you probably meant 'DS was wailing' but I'm sitting here imagining your DH falling of his bike and losing it over a small knee graze. :-)

    BUT, it depends on if they are really hurt if it's just a toddler who trips over the dirt & sits down and has a little cry of frustration. I would prefer my toddler is left to get up & brush him/herself off and keep going. I don't hover if I can manage it so that I can promote independence. But, I do watch from a distance if they are doing safe stuff and if they do hurt themselves & I'm not within reach then I'd love help from anyone.
    I don't know if people can adequately judge this though when its not their child
    but see the point

    Hahaha silly me yes it was DS.

    If it were DH it would have been mildly hilarious! My mistake

    I don't make a habit of helping my toddler up every time she trips over - 9/10 she's fine. Just frustrated and gets over it within seconds.

    It a stranger did help her though I wouldn't be offended at all. I'd think they were just being nice.

    Gee I do this all the time, but only if the child is crying and seems genuinely distressed, and I can't see their adult around.

    It's an automatic reaction from me, I've never gotten anything other than positive reactions. I would not mind a person picking up my crying child and bringing them to me, and I think I have done so in the past.
