Do you sit on the bench and watch them or are you with your kids the whole time on the equipment? Assuming they are old enough to be up there alone.

I sit on the bench and watch unless they ask me to play with them.

I sit my ass on the bench. If I wanted to play with them, we would have stayed home.

my kids are 3 & 5 the ONLY time i was with them on the equipement was before they learned to walk.

i am NOT a helicopter parent, nor are my friends who we go to the park with.  my kids know how to play woth others and if there is that so called bully at the play ground my kids know how to defend themselves.

i let my kids be kids

It depends. I used to play with them more. They are getting older and like running around and making new friends.

I always feel like a crap parent when I see other moms up on the equipment and I'm just sitting on the bench lol. I want to relax:)

It depends. Dd is 3 and ds is 1 so usually I'm with ds and watching dd. If she needs me then I'm there. When ds was younger I would wear him and then I would be with her if she needed me. Otherwise I was on he bench :)

I usually just sit and watch. They love the freedom of running around and making new friends
