  • No. At least I try not to! (LOL!- sometimes they still get in to it!!)

    My mom never let me play with her purse and I remember that I didn't understand why! Now that I have kids of my own... I know exactly why!! Money, lipstick, keys, cell phone... are all things that I either don't want my kids to play with, but also don't want them to lose!!

  • NO! It's mine, and they need to learn you don't mess in people's purses. Plus I have pill bottles, scissors, and other non-child items that they do NOT need to play with.

  • No I don't. If I had a girl, she'd have a little purse with her own toys and "cell phone" she can play with. But, because I have a boy, its his own little backpack and he can dig into!

  • Definitely not! I was raised in a home where I feared touching my mother's purse. I knew if I went into it I'd be in SERIOUS trouble. Going through another woman's purse is absolutely UNACCEPTABLE and teaching them young is the way to do it.

  • No, my daughter has her own purse. On rare occasions if I have my hands full I'll let her carry my purse inside for me (which of course makes her feel like hot stuff) but she knows better then to go digging in it.

  • Yes...I took all my cards and money out and now have them in my zip pocket and never use my purse anymore. My son loves using it sometimes with his own fake cards and coins.

  • Yes, I gave he all my old purses. I carry a diaper bag now so why let them just sit around. I have taught her not to go in others purses and she listens very well..

  • I have old purses that I don't use anymore..and she walks around playing with them sometimes, they are in her toy box.

  • Nope! I don't allow anyone to dig around in my purse-- it is my purse, my things and there is nothing in it my children need to get into. Even my hubs keeps his hands out of my purse--lol!!
