We took Granddaughter to one of those soft play centres today. It gives her a chance to run around when the weather is miserable.
Being a weekday, the place was full of pre-school toddlers enjoying themselves. Two boisterous little boys were particularly noticeable, running around everywhere letting off steam. They were fine though - too little to be doing any harm.
The parents or grandparents, sit around drinking coffee and every now and then the little ones persuade them to join in the fun for a while.
Those two little boys never seemed to do that. I never saw them touch base with an adult. Not even a glance or a look at me, although I could have missed one or two of those.
I don’t think so though. As far as I could see they were ignored for two hours and showed every sign of being used to it. Sooner or later a primary school teacher will be dealing with that.
