Ok so today was field day at my 7 year olds school. I did not recieve a notice or anything that siblings were not allowed to be present. So I go with my husband who volunteered to cook and the secretary tells me that I am not allowed to go in with my 2 year old because they don't want the little siblings running around and getting hurt! WTF? Are you serious? I have never heard such crap! Is it not the parents responsibility to watch their kids? I can't go watch my son have a good time because of my youngest might get in the way! That is crap. If my son got hurt it would be from me not watching him. Oh I am just so upset I had to leave the school quickly before I got nasty. That is such crap.

Jun. 2, 2008 at 8:58 AM From what I've heard (and remember) field days are quite rowdy and chaotic...I've never heard of sibling being invited.  I am surprised you were asked to leave, however.
