Also, I think it's great that things have become so much easier for mums of today. Being a mum is hard enough as it is.

I think it's overly simplistic to say things are easier today.
Take laundry. At first glance it's so much easier. But back before washing machines, standards were much lower, people weren't judged for having a few marks on their clothes. Laundry day was an enormous task, but the whole family rallied around, took care of little ones, respected the need to help. Now we juggle laundry with a million other tasks.
The same applies to many things; technology has made individual tasks easier, but expectations much, much higher.

I moved further out now, and buses are a fricken nightmare, I have 2 boys, and the thought of going out on a bus these days, irritates me alot. If I go anywhere on weekends, there is a 1hr wait in between, and if say my train pulled in the station, there is a good chance I would of just missed the bus home, that's like a 50min wait with 2 kids under 3.
Getting back on topic. My friend and I when we go to one of the shopping centres out here, we generally park in the same parking lot, on the top, and they have I think 6 PWP spots. The battle to get them, can be very ferocious.

I have used the 'parents with prams' car spaces a few times while carrying DS and then putting him in a trolley.
I think anyone with kids should be able to use them regardless of the pram thing because the spaces are generally WIDER to be able to get kids in and out of the cars easier

Where are these wider parks?! I've parked in PWP spots in several cities over many years and never encountered one...
