I took my kids to the park this evening to play. There were two other mom's there talking and 3 other kids (1 boy about 4 or 5yo and 2 girls about 1yo and 2yo) I could not believe how little attention these parents were paying to their kids, letting them punch, hit, kick, scratch, bite, bodyslam each other. About 30 minutes in, the 2 girls come over to my 2 girls (2.5yo and 15mo) and start bullying them! These parents just ignore it and keep talking about how dead beat their "babydaddies" are. WTF. BE PARENTS. YOU ARE NO BETTER! Deciding these kids were too rough, I moved mine over to a smaller fenced in toddler area. Not 5 minutes later these parents move their kids over. They won't let my kids play on anything, so I just pick my kids up and leave saying out loud that we will just go to a different park far away. My kids were happy to leave. How sad! I feel so sorry for those kids! What would you do/think?

I'm not sure. They were letting kids work it out and it didn't sound like the kids were running back to parents and tattling. Parents can't be worse behaved than the kids. They can be too involved, yelling all the time, spanking, yelling at other people's kids, even biting kids. I would rather be at the park with these kids than a park with bad parents. I would tell my kids to stay away from them.
