A team photographer tried to keep me away from my son.

My son is 7 and today was their basketball team pictures. The photographer was using a room in the gym and they were taking the kids back there for pictures. I started to go with them and he said No parents allowed. Uh hell no! I said sorry but my kid doesn't go anywhere with strangers without me. He was like what do you do when he's in school? You know his coach and his coach will be there. I said either I go or he doesn't. I NEVER leave him at practice, cub scouts etc.Literally the only place he goes alone is school.

Do you leave your kids at practice at his age?

Yes I do, but to each their own. I know that even if I'm there 99% of the time I can't protect him from everything.

For a picture? Yes I would. For a practice, no I don't. You seriously had to be in the room the pictures were being taken in, even though the coach was there?
