While sitting in the qantas club lounge down at the airport this morning eating my breakfast and perusing the Advertiser's offerings for today, a small piece of vital info caught my attention. Read it out to my son who also laughed at this silliness.
Basicly some council in Watford ( yes that is in the UK) has banned parents from accompanying their offspring into local playparks unless they can show a clear CRB and employ a playpark ranger to supervise the kids while the parents look on from over the fence.
It went on to state that they are following their duty of care as how are they to know whether those adults are paedophiles.......
Seem to remember a park bench constantly being removed from the playground in the park near us in London due to complaints about elderly men sitting there watching the kids play. If anyone had actually bothered to talk to them they would have discovered that they missed their grandkids and just liked to watch the kids play!!! Of course caution has to be shown, but if the kids have no sense then they need to be accompanied by a parenbt or other guardian responsible.
