    Default Interested to hear opinions ;)

    My friend was at the shop yesterday and got this letter on her car when she got back
    ImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1362564106.439656.jpg

    She has a 2.5year old that still uses a stroller but when she got the stroller out he wanted to walk, so he he held her mums hand and my friend walked the stroller in.

    How old is too old to be able to use a parents with pram parking?

    I see both sides I guess? But didn't really think this note was necessary.

    Hmmm. Was in this situation myself today. Have a 1 y.o. and was only running in so was carrying him rather than getting the pram out. Now he is a chunky monkey and pretty heavy and I am not a massive person and am pregnant.

    I did consider using the parents spot as I needed to be as close as possible, but changed my mind at the last minute. Now seeing this I am glad I didn't!!!

    I agree that this is over the top. Personally I believe the spots should be for the parents of young children. I don't really see why having a pram necessarily means you need to be close to the entry. The thing I like about these spots is you often get more room on the side of the car so you can open the door really wide to get little people in and out of car seats.

    Your poor friend, what a horrible thing to have happen.

    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.

    She had a pram.

    Parent. With. Pram.

    But as PP said its irrelevant, it's only a courtesy on behalf of the shopping centre to butter up their clientele

    How rude! I still use parents with prams and my youngest for now is 2.5 - granted he is always in a pram or trolley but still, how rude of whoever put that on their car!

    If I have DD with me I'll park in a PWP spot even if its a quick trip and she wants to walk. I wouldn't park there if I had only DS who is 5 and at school - I never have DS without DD though.

    BTW, prepare yourself. Forget circumcision, vaxing or elective caesareans. PWP threads are where the magic happens

    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.
