Today we took 2.5 yr old DS to the mall play area. I finished up shopping at a store while hunny watched him at the play area. I walk up and see these two little brats yelling in his face to get out. They couldn't have been more than 4-5ish. I yelled (loud as heck in there) to stop doing that to him after I didn't see any parents stepping in. My DH got him out of there but later told me those girls were bothering everyone. Where were their parents? Prob off shopping. Are you one to say something in this case or remove your child instead?Answer Question

I would say something too. Kids need to learn from someone that it's not acceptable to act like that.

If I notice that the kids are unsupervised I alert the Mall Security that there are abandon minors and that if security does not show up in the next 30 seconds I am calling the police. Have done so and have had the pleasure of embarrassing parents who drop their children under the age of 7 in the mall play area and expect other parents to watch their children. That does not work for me and I am more than happy to call them on the carpet and if needed have their children taken from them. After all abandonment is just that and should not be tolerated.
