Bringing toys to the playground

Is rude, true or false?


This is the third time I've had to drive 1/2 hour to the park and leave because my 2 year old has a full blown temper tantrum, screaming, biting, hitting throwing wood chips, etc. all because a child brings a toy that they can't/won't share. My 2 year old doesn't understand this and our day was ruined because I can't tolerate him behaving this way obviously. It all could have been avoided if someone were more considerate.

Sigh... I thought this was common sense!

You could avoid this by disciplining you child other people can bring what they want and they don't have to share with a stranger

What's rude is thinking that others have to think of you.

Sorry, but parenting isn't always smooth sailing and it isn't anyone else's job to spare you.

It's not the other kids ruining your time at the park.

Uh what? You can't control your kid so people can't bring toys to the park? Am I reading that right?

I don't think there is anything wrong with it. That's something to work on with your little one. No is hard but important lesson to teach with a 2yr old.

I never bring anything myself because I don't want to loose a favorite toy or have it get broken.

He's 2 and nonverbal. He doesn't understand. I don't beat my child so I discipline him by going home

Quoting Anonymous 2: Wow your kid sounds like a brat.

He has to learn that every kid isn't going to give him his toys. Bring a toy for him next time if it's a problem. Can't you distract him with the slide?

Entertain your child at the park. Talk to your child before you get there and explain the park is for playing outside. Also explain that others don't have to share if they don't want to.
