I cant see what the problem is
Kids should not be screaming inside, its bloody annoying and painful when there is a mob of kids screaming and shrieking away together.
Ive spent many hours trying to teach my kids about inside and outside voices. Of course when they were younger they would occasionally scream inside but I reminded them about inside voices and they would calm down. Its not like they can go to school and start screaming in the classroom.
No, but it's not like they are horn ready for the classroom either.
Kids make noise, especially when excited. I too spend endless hours teaching my sons when it is or isn't appropriate to make lots of noise but I don't have an off button if they have a meltdown and though I do try to mitigate their shopping behaviour by only going when they're happy sometimes I have to get milk or take one to a doctor or take myself to a doctor,or see a friend visiting interstate for inequality day...you know, life!!
It's only happening because it's kids and an easy way to blame and control mothers in public, further shunning them for daring to bring their children out in public.
I was at dinner at Lynch's , a restaurant made famous by banning children and winning the court case (against Julia Gillard no less) - beautiful place, one night diners at the next table spent an hour talking loudly and drunkenly into a mobile phone being passed around the table. I asked the waiter about it but he said he couldn't do anything about it. I asked him if he thought a baby would be this disruptive to other diners for such a long time and maybe he would consider banning mobile phones?
They have closed down now but my point is that adults are drunk, obnoxious, loud and inappropriate morning, noon and night - from peak hour train rides to work to drunken diners to footy to the park which provides BBQ areas right next to the playground so if we go on the weekend it's hit and miss whether the kids will be sharing the swings with drunk adults, subject to swearing, groping and other foul behaviour.
If the playground is a problem move the bloody play ground, don't advertise yourself as family friendly, invite kids in to shop, eat, play (spend money that keeps youin business) and then tell them they can't be kids.
