  • Uh.. I don't see anything wrong with chalk. If she thinks it looks tacky, tell her to grab a water hose...

  • If they are writing with chalk, it is fine at your house, If it is at her house, then she makes the rules and her rules need to be respected.

  • are u saying that she's not approving of your kids playing with chalk ??
    if yes , then no i dont see a problem in that either. but if your kids are too young.. she might have a point. chalks are a little hazardous, especially when eaten/swallowed by the little ones

  • Unless they are eating the chalk I don't see an issue with it.

  • that is ridiculous i think its fine for kids to play with chalk as long as they are using it the right way maybe give them rules like only on the ground not the walls and only on their own pavement and they have to wash it i mean it only takes a lil water. maybe she never had chalk and she just dont know how fun it is.
