What would you think of a mom who plays on the playground with her kid?

I.E. On the swing, hide-and-seek, or a tag game

Basically, do you think I'm strange for doing these things with my son?

  • I would do it if I wasn't pregnant :-) playground equipment isn't made for pregnant women :-)

  • I would think nothing of it... I mean unless your son was like 15 or something. ;0)

  • I would think "Good for you!"

    I play with my daughter outside and on the play ground. It's fun, for both of us!

  • I would think you were a good Mom. I live right across the street from the park and I see to many Mom's who sit on the bench and talk and barely even keep an eye on their kids.

  • I've never thought of what others might think. It's never occurred to me to.

    I've been playing with my kids on playgrounds for years.

  • No way!!!!! You could be a mother that stands on the sidelines or you could be a mom that's in the game!!!! Good for you for being involved!!!! Your kids will appreciate you a lot more for being a hands on mom!!!

  • Thank goodness for good health! I did it, and still do it. Though, I gave up the swings: motion sickness. Rather, I tried to out-swing the boys. So sad...
