I'm not sure this is the best place to post this question. I've been wondering for some time how other parents handle finding a left-behind toy or clothing item at a public place like a park?
We've found several items, sweatshirts, Thomas Trains and have always left them in a visible place at the park in case the owners return for them, yet I have a friend who lets her children claim the items right away. So naturally, my kids have started asking if they can claim "Finders Keepers" and I'm just not sure how I feel about it.
What are your thoughts and how do you handle lost/found items?
