Following lunch at a Belconnen fast food ‘restaurant’ outdoor playground today; when I gave my kids the 2 minute warning I was smuggly and rudely told my children were being too loud by another parent (“oh good, does that mean we’re only going to be subjected to the yelling and screaming for another two minutes!?”).
Whilst I’d happily admit my response, while initially constrained (Excuse me!? It’s a kids’ playground!”); was not entirely appropriate (flipped her “the bird” – which I apologised for afterward);
I’m interested to know reader’s opinions of loud boisterous behaviour from children in an outdoor play venue (albeit confined and glassed in – trapping sound).
Was I over the line allowing my kids to be “yelling and screaming” whilst playing in an outdoor play area?
