I was at the park with my very tall and solid 3-year-old. She was running around on the playground equipment, having a ball. While we were there, a group of 5 moms, each with a kid roughly 18 months old, showed up, all together. Their kids were toddling around, but as you can imagine were much smaller than my kid. One of the moms told my daughter to not play in the areas were any little ones were so she wouldn't accientally push against one of them. And they were all over it so basically they wanted her to sit out I guess. I was there and said she could play on the equipment too, wherever she wanted, and the moms glared and whispered for a while and then left with their kids.
So was their expectation that my kid not play near any of their kids reasonable? Was I rude to not accommodate this? They obviously thought I was rude, but I thought they were rude to think all activity at the park should stop because they showed up with their kids.
