No I won't "get over it" because you are speaking from a place of ignorance on the topic of having difficult to control children.

well I have taken toddlers out and "controlled" them without degrading them to an animal status. Just because they arent MY children doesnt lessen that fact no matter how hard you try.

This is what YOU said on THIS thread. This is what I, and others, responded to. Quit backpedaling.

[quote=Katiana;19635127]DUH to you! You've obviously never had TWO children at a time in a public space, like a mall. One child distracts you, and the other runs off and hides. Mind you, toddlers have no sense of danger. Now before you tell me that your toddler niece is afraid say, of the vaccuum cleaner, let me remind you of what I said: no sense of danger. A toddler doesn't know it's dangerous to run off and hide. You may even play such a game at home. Plus, toddlers don't have much sense of direction. You may be in children's clothing at a mall store, and all of a sudden your child is in furniture and has NO idea how to get back.quote]


Thus why a parent shouldnt bite off more than they can handle. Why would I take 2 small children out in a huge place where ANYTHING could happen if I cant handle them???

How many at one time?

For how long?

Were they walking?

In a stroller?

Were you alone?

How old are these toddlers?
