What do you do about strangers? My kids have reached the stage where they think it’s hilarious to run away from me in large open spaces, like the beach, for instance, and aside from this being incredibly annoying and irritating, it’s also dangerous. If one is going one way and the other another way, they could get lost. Someone could pick them up.
I like to joke that whoever did that would sure be sorry, because, honestly, you do not want to kidnap my toddlers. They’re a handful. Unfortunately, it’s not a funny world we live in. What if someone did? How do you explain that to a three year old?
I over-reached a bit, I admit it. But when your kids are running away from you at top speed in opposite directions on a crowded beach, you get a little nervous.
