Because I see it brought up all the time on here. Like, why people spank. Or why people do or don't discipline a certain way. Or why people can't return shopping carts. I will say, none of my three children have ever come close to running into traffic (granted, one can't run yet) or dashing away from me in a parking lot.
Why does this seem to happen so frequently to other people? Anyone?
Do you have rules for your children in parking lots? What are they, and are they working to keep your children from being one of the apparent thousands who frequently dart into traffic and/or away from their mothers control in parking lots?
I think that people who frequently have kids running into traffic are doing something fundamentally wrong. Either you allow your kids to play in dangerous areas too close to traffic, or you don't have sufficient discipline techniques to teach your children how to be safe. Please discuss.
