So we are there playing for about an hour no issues. DH goes to smoke....has to leave playground area to do it. And this little boy comes to play. He's probably DDs age but smaller. I heard him call mom at one point but she wasn't right there, dunno where she was. So I am standing with baby and DD goes to other side of playground and I can see her but not hear what's going on. Assume she's talking to kids. All if a sudden I see her put her head down and hear her crying.
The boy told her she couldn't play on slide and was blocking stairs to the three slides. Why he chose to pick on her, I dunno. But I went over to her at first thinking I somehow missed her getting hurt and she tells me this.
I marched her up to slides telling her quite loudly that the playground is for Everyone and told her he didn't own the playground and so long as she took turns she could go on any slide she wanted.
A few minutes later other mom finally shows up.
I know they are kids but I don't go for the exclusion of ANY kid. I also get ticked because if it were MY kid saying things I'd have stopped it and DD always is with one of us right there. I also get ticked because I'm a nurse. If someones kid fell...even beyond the parent naturally being responsible, I would be moreso. Fine...if parents are there. But when they aren't it annoys me.
I didn't yell at the kid but I made my point clear and when DH came back he could tell I was pissed. I know kids will be kids but watch your kid and teach them to be decent.
