Have you seen the pictures of parents on phones ignoring their kids?
Quick, go look at them before you come back and finish this post. It’s worth it, I’ll wait.
Crazy eh? Been there, done that too, I’m guessing.
Those pictures are why signs like this one I saw at a Park Ranger Interpretive Centre last weekend are popping up everywhere.
The ‘watch your child or else’ signs are funny, but sad at the same time.
Scroll through this list of 21 ‘please watch your kids or else’ signs and judge for yourself.
We’re trying to raise considerate, responsible, walking kids. That said .. sometimes they wander, and pitch a fit.
It’s the price you pay when you don’t believe in leashing. Shopowners, it would appear, would prefer our kids tied up and heeled like trained dogs.
Good luck with that. Kids are kids, and most of us are trying our damndest to keep ‘em in line but sometimes it’s like herding cats. Sorry.
Regardless, most of the signs are funny, others .. well .. let’s just say if I saw their sign I would gladly take my kids and my money elsewhere.
