|What would you have said to these boys? Would you have tried to find their parents? If so, what would you have said to them?|
after using a loud & firm voice and getting no place, I would have left the section with my child
I highly doubt that parents that leave their children unattended really care what you feel, I would not have bothered to look for them, I would not call the police (in our are non-emergency would not even have dealt with the issue)- I really don't think (again maybe because it is my area) they would have even announced a request to find the parents
I would simply have left, I would not engage a conversation with a child unwilling to give me his name- if you did find that parents it could have been a he said she said with parents just like the child-brats!
|I think most kids by the age of 8 don't have parents watch them play all the time anymore,|
|Two other kids were playing with her, a three-year-old girl and a four-year-old boy.|
Wow, great suggestions! It had occurred to me to give them the option of showing me their parents or having me call the police, but I thought maybe that would be too extreme. But I think if this situation happened again, I would do exactly that. I should put the non-emergency police number in my phone.
