Did you visit with him or did he visit with you?...Maybe he is concerned about keeping up with a younger woman. Do you have the same title or is one of you a different rank?...Maybe you have to make a move if he ranks below you. Maybe he worries about getting fired if he ranks above you. Maybe he wants you but his life is crazy and he doesn't want to drag you into it until it settles. Maybe he has been pretty transparent about how he feels but has not gotten the same transparency in return... Maybe you could provide just a bit more of a hint that he would recognize this post as his....LOL
ah well we can agree to disagree I guess. If I were in the OP's position I probably would have said something to the kid in front of the parent and glared at the parent daring her to say something, preying common sense dawned on her, but I totally understand letting a punk kid and parent learn their necessary lessons on their own. It's just a broken arm and he earned it so we can always "let that shit work itself out". If that kid behaves that way on the weekend I shudder to think of the nightmare he is causing his teachers. And no there is nothing wrong with your boys going to a playground if they don't act like challenged monkeys, but yes they should be playing sports whenever possible. I suppose that's just my opinion but there it is.
And I made a few well educated guesses but I certainly didnt make any assumptions because I acknowledged the ideas of others and how they might work under their assumptions in addition to my own.
Point taken on the age labels they put on some of those playgrounds but anyone with half a brain knows those are pretty ridiculous because many mention the upper level at 12 yrs and no child anywhere near 12 years should ever be on one of those playgrounds unless they have a condition that causes them to behave half their age. somewhere around 6 or 7 years they should have already begun to gravitate towards more challenging pursuits.
And Furious, You go ahead and jump up in the face of every ignorant parent you see, unless you feel you are already being identified as such, and see how long you last. Picking a fight and/or causing drama doesn't get you anywhere, especially with parents who don't realize that their kids are troublemakers, and they as parents are contributing towards it. These are the same parents who think their kids can do no wrong and always point the finger at others, and blame the world for their bitter lot in life.
When your kids act like the kids the OP mentioned and some parents talk to your kid about being a fucktard, then will you still let your monkey learn his lesson appropriately as you seem so ready to do when they are bullying the other kids and taking over the playground while you smile with pride?
Furious you have the same problem as the other twat. you are assuming all the kids were roughly the same age or at least as old as your kids. And the OB was talking about a WEEKEND visit which is usually just a handful of kids at any one time and a much wider variety of ages. Meaning there are parents with 2 and 3 year old toddlers and upwards to children even as old as yours show up occasionally when they can't seem to find any sports to play for some reason. Have you never been to a playground on the weekend? That's when all the kids who aren't yet old enough to go to school hit the playground with their parents. What fucking planet are you on? That's why the etiquette comes into play because there are more younger kids around on the weekend and pretty much every kid there at any one time has one or more parents just a few feet away to watch, control, guide them. Except for the odd fucktard with the worthless parents.
I got the impression that the OB has a younger child. People don't generally call a 5-7 yr old a "little one". That term is more commonly used with toddlers and pre-school aged kids. Myself, My daughter is 3 and of course she is never more than a few feet away from me. It won't always be that way but for right now she's 3 so it's just part of the job. It only takes a split second to lose a child forever. When she is school aged and on the playground with dozens of crazy heathen-spawn every day with only a teacher or two to supervise then yes she will work some shit out on her own. But for now it is unrealistic to expect a toddler to walk up to a 6 yr old nitwit and tell them they have a problem with them.
Stephen Harper you are making a big assumption. The ob didn't mention anything about talking or a conversation among the other parents. Only their delayed reaction. I know when my daughter and I go to the occasional playground, there is usually just that shared look of pity combined with disgust and disappointment when a parent or child go out of their way to make an ass of themselves or ruin the day for others. Or even if there had been some chatter its better than having your child traumatized by seeing their parents get attacked by some fuck-up of a parent who will also end up humiliating their own misguided spawn. You have plenty of time to teach a child to shake their fist at tyranny. It doesn't need to start when they are toddlers when they will only understand the violence and not the meaning behind it.
avast I will agree on the "work itself out" idea if the kids are all old enough to be there without their parents, and of like age, or if its a school playground during school hours at recess with just a few teachers and a huge number of kids. Of course if they are all old enough to be there without their parents then they shouldn't be there anyway. And if you expect moms and dads to just sit there and let 6-10 year old's boss around their 2-5 year old's and totally take over the playground, you are outta your fucking mind. Also, jumping off the swing is totally different because that's a solo deal. It's not a reasonable comparison.
I agree with the OP for the most part. And we don't know how long the OP and the other parents waited for the boy's parent. It may have just been a second or two.
And teaching your children to be mindful of smaller children when playing and respectful of others, and as you stated "to share" is important. Much of that teaching comes while on the playground when you are "WATCHING" your kid and advising them AS they play and WHEN things happen.
Your views are archaic and old fashioned. Times have changed. And much of your manifesto only makes sense if ALL the children on the playground at that time are older and borderline too old to even be there.
And by doing what they were doing on the slide they WERE bullying the smaller kids. I think the OP made that quite obvious. Bullying is a big deal right now and no form of it is acceptable. "bullying" isn't just getting in their face and hitting them or stealing their lunch money big guy.
As for the reaction time Sweetart, it's hard to say without being there, but If its a 7 year old boy acting like an idiot, it might be alright to pause to make sure the lesson sinks in and also realize "hey where the fuck is my parental unit" before heading over to him. If its a younger child, yes you head right the fuck over there.
I also got the impression this was a Daddy and not a Mommy. Going down the slide to teach a little fucktard a lesson is more of a Daddy thing I think. Plus a dad has more of a "suck it up buttercup" attitude towards boys.
The Three Amigos was NOT a B Movie...
fuckin hippies...worthless...fuck em
if you are in sooo much pain that you need to light up a joint near a crowd then you shouldn't be out in public for fuck sakes...I don't give a fuck what you do as long as I don't have to smell that nasty shit...fuckin hippies...

This is only based on one vist. I had the Jalapeno burger and it was very dry and very over-cooked. It took quite a bit of beer just to get it down. The server was friendly but a couple of my party started with a large drought and only after we had downed our first did we discover that the next size up which was double the beer was only 1$ more. This is something she should have shared with us when we ordered the drought and should have corrected on the bill after we asked about the special and ordered the larger size on our next round which was not long after the first. IN SUMMARY...love the beer specials ($2.75 a beer on Sunday during the game) and selection and the atmosphere, but burgers were a fail and the server screwed us. Will try it again though as I may have cought them on a bad night....Did the try the famed Voodoo sticks and they definitely were good.
