I don't let them out willy nilly, I'm talking about the ones that run out the moment you open the gate. If a child was standing there with 'please let me out' eyes after my child is out, I'm not going to say 'well come on, out you come too' but I can't physically stop a child from running/walking out the moment I open the gate.

I don't think you should assume every parent is watching either.
- Breastfeeding another baby
- Watching another child elsewhere
- Gone to buy food/drink (I always get my free coffee while my charge is playing - otherwise he nags me for biscuits/cupcakes/jelly)
- God forbid - talking to another person, or drinking a coffee, or checking phone.
- At my play centre there's wifi so parent's can do work while their kids play quelle horreur!

I'm probably going to get flamed here, but if my DS is playing in a gated area, I'm in there with him - not hovering but sitting down or standing off to the side. He is only 17 months, but I'll probably keep doing that until I feel that he's old enough so that if he is let out by another adult, I won't worry. No idea when that will be.

I think just because they're locked in, doesn't mean you should assume they're being watched.
I do not let kids out of gates/doors etc.
I was at a park once that was enclosed and a kid walked out with a crowd of people leaving and he was wandering in the carpark. The people who he walked out with actually brought him back and were asking whose kid it was
I was at a McDonald's playground and my son needed to go to the toilet, a little girl ran after him. The mother had no idea and I had to take her back.

When DD was younger I used to wander with her and supervise. Now she is getting more independent I still keep a watchful eye but allow her to go and do things on her own (but Im never far away!!)

I don't think it's anyone else's responsibility but your own to ensure your child doesn't get out . If I'm not watching and my child gets let out by you and something happens that is no ones fault but my own. They aren't baby sitting service . It's a play ground .
