Would you remove another child from a play space if your own child was “in danger?”
We were at a splash pad and my son (2.5 yrs) was trying to climb up a turtle. I was watching from afar and didn’t notice that a small kid (maybe 10 months?) had crawled up right next to my son. I don’t think my son was hurting the other kid or anything but just trying to climb up the turtle. Then a mom came running in yelling “be careful with the baby!” Confused, that’s when I repositioned myself to see what was going on... then my son again, attempted to climb the turtle (not touching the baby but obviously struggling to climb up the turtle). Then she yelled at my son again and before I could react, she grabbed his arm and moved him away (like 4 feet or so). I’m not confrontational so I didn’t say anything to the other mom. My son was fine and just went to play with something else. If she did hurt my son in anyway though I know I would have said something about it to her. Am I weird for thinking that instead of touching another child that you don’t know... why wouldn’t she just remove her own kid from the “danger?” What is playground etiquette on handling other people’s kids??? I know I’ve said stuff to other kids before like “please no hitting/kicking/etc” but I don’t think I would ever grab another child like that unless they were about to fall off something.
