do you take your children out black friday shopping?

I have never taken mine but I have seen so many people out with kids on black Friday. Sometimes babies, sometimes toddlers and even some older kids like 6-10.

If you do take your kids then why? I have never personally understood why you would take a toddler to stand in line outside of a store when it's super cold just in order to save a few bucks.

people get trampled to death on Black Friday. It's practically child abuse to drag your children around in the wee morning hours in the cold so you can save a buck.

I agree but I have seen tons of parents do it. I am just wondering how they justify that to themselves.

Maybe they couldn't get a babysitter, but wanted to get that half off cheap tv, computer or toy for their kid or husband for Christmas.  I don't know.  I wouldn't take my kids.  I would just stay home.

Oh I see them justify all over the place on cm every year.

*I* would never do some of the stuff I've seen.

I guess newborns are fine, you're wearing them and what not. But I was at target last year from 6p in line, to about 2a. I saw TODDLERS!!! Jc!

I MAY take my 4&6 in the afternoon but I doubt it. I did most of my shopping online already.

Heck no .  I do not even go out on black friday.  Especially now that most can be done on line instead of going into the stores.

Not when they open the doors but in the afternoon we have.
