Went out with the family on Friday (a lovely day out - will post about it in another more relevant area). Anyway we were in a park and my son was on the swing, with other children waiting around to go on. I took my attention off him for a moment (10 - 15 secs) and when I turned back one of the older kids was stopping the swing.
So jupming in too quick, I shout "Hey, what you doing?!" and the lad says (as he goes a little red) "he asked to get off".

I felt so small.......and then apologised numerous times to him. Still feel a little bad for the lad, that he had me bark at him and he was being helpful. Hope it does not put him off doing it again.

Any other embarrasing situations when looking out for your little ones....

I remember taking my friends son to the cinema once (he was about 13) and doing my nut at someone for parking in a disabled parking space.... they then pointed out they we're disabled and had the relevant parking badge etc.... It was a - ground open up and swallow me please - moment!

We do jump in quickly sometimes and see the negatives in other children, but it's usually to protect our own - put it down to experience and try not to dwell on it.

True story. When I was a police officer I pulled a guy over who I suspected of drink driving. I accused him of slurring his speech and when he got out he could hardly walk! I was just about to arrest him there and then when he then told me he was disabled (and not at all drunk). I helped him on his way and wished him a happy day! AWKWARD!!
