I wanted to ask other mums out there, in particular mums of young children, what is the etiquette at the park?
I witnessed today a mum telling another mum (not very politely) to stop her son from riding his scooter near them as he had pushed over 3 children.
Now I know this child, and this is far from his character. Although I did not see this, I really doubt he pushed anyone over (he was probably more likely riding too close to them on his scooter & they fell over themselves - they looked around 12mths)
But what is park etiquette these days? Is it wrong of me to think that this mum was a bit rude? That she clearly does not understand he is only 4, and didn't mean it?
I say this, as I'm usually the mum apologising for my son's path of destruction, but i would never get angry at another parent if their child did something that was likely to be an accident.
