I absolutely agree with you. If the child skates in the store and they get hurt that is on the parent, however if they run into an elderly person or another child who takes responsibility for that? ive seen an elderly woman pushed into a rack by one of these kids and the kid walked away laughing. Remember those signs no Skates allowed? that means skate shoes too, no matter how good your child is at controlling these things accidents are always a possibility and could be easily avoided by not letting your child skate indoors. Walmart and other stores are not playgrounds they are stores where everyone should be able to walk around without fear of injury. My nine year old is getting these for Christmas and you can bet she will never be seen wearing this in the store or anywhere other than outside where all skates belong.
Stop spoiling your children we were never allowed in the store with skates on and we are none the worse for it.
Teach them patience make them wait until they are outside to skate and stop risking injury to other people just so you can make your spoiled children happy and keep them quiet so you can shop in peace if they want to skate so bad hire a babysitter to stay home and take them skating while you shop, a couple dollars for a sitter are well worth removing the risk of injury to another human being.
