What is you biggest playground pet peeve?

Mine is kids climbing UP the slides. I think it is the rudest thing ever! Stairs are for climbing, slides are for sliding DOWN.

Whats your pet peeve?

  • That bugs me too. But I have to say parents bringing their kids sick... I am sorry if your kid has snot hanging past his chin, he should not be at the park!

  • moms who don't watch their own kids, i hate being the "playground police" but i will tell a kid if they're being bad if it's putting my kid at risk for being injured

  • Honestly the playground is kid territory. It's where kids can just be kids so long as they do not do way dangerous stuff and to me climbing the slide isn't all that bad however if it is a tube slide and they are climbing the outside of the tube then that is in the dangerous category. But to answer the question smoking parents close to the playground and yes I am a smoker and I walk far enough away from people if I must smoke if there is nowhere to smoke within a safe distance then I don't smoke.

  • 1) moms who say '" do that" a 100 times with out actually getting up and correcting the kid when their child is misbehaving.

    2) hyper sensitive mothers who tell the kids "dont do that dont do that" 100 times to normal play... my god it is if they want to wrap the kid in bubble wrap and never let them fall... that is part of learning!
