My Dh, Myself & my Son were at the park for a little while yesterday. My son was playing on a wooden truck that has a ladder for the kids to climb. There was a Mom with a tiny tot about 1 1/2 . The little girl was playing up on top & the Mom was just not attentive at all. I stayed at the ladder which was the only way down about 5 steps just in case my Son needed help. The little girl started coming down & I got the Mothers attention & pointed that she's trying to come down herself. The Mom just got annoyed & walked in the other direction so I had to help her kid & she totally ignored the whole issue. WTF??? Oh, should the kid have fallen because she was too cool to watch her kid?? OK, I'm venting but that's just plain rude!! I would never have let the poor thing fall but I was so pissed at that Bi*ch! Maybe she was teaching her daughter to fall & learn??? I just don't get it?? It was on gravel too! What would you have done?

Some parents are not as attentive as other parents. However, some children are just natural climbers. Maybe the mom was so use to her daughter being adventurous that's why she did not reacact as you did. My twins are 7 and I take them to the park daily, I am the mom who is standing in the center of the playground montering my children play. Just because my boys are active and I want to make sure they don't hurt others. My daughters now 20 and 18 were another story when I went to the park with them I was able to sit on the park bench read a book and watch them play.
