I am sorry, but in this day and time there is NO WAY IN HELLO that I would allow my 8 year old (I dont have one anymore) away from me in a store. You never know what freak is just around the corner, waiting for the perfect opportunity to snatch his next victim.
To me, you should be praising the actions of the store NOT complaining. These stores are NOT a daycare. The kids you bring into them are your responsiblity. Keep your kids with you or leave them at home.
Things like this anger me so much. I see all those little ones who have been kidnapped and will never come home. The one found in the suitcase really got me. These kids are TOO young to be left to their own devices.
Times have changed our world and not all the time for the better. Our children are now prey, more so then ever. We as parents have to learn that they are our first responsibltiy and that we must do everything in our power to protect them at all times and all places.
