So I just read an article on news.com.au where a mother called the police on another father in the playground. Here's the gist of the situation (direct quote from article):
“I was just at the park & the police arrived. Seemingly a Mother was pushing her little girl on a swing when a Father approached & said he was also waiting for the swing. The Mother replied that they would be another 5 minutes or so. The Father proceeded to stop the swing in motion & tried to lift the daughter out!
The Mother was very upset & called the police. Another parent in the park thought this was a little over board. What would you do?!? Would you call the police?"
Personally I don't have kids so I really don't know what I'd do. I think the father was way out of line touching someone else's child without permission, but then I also think calling the police is a bit over the top. I'm just curious though, what would your reaction be?
