To think children shouldn't wee in front garden?

Or more to the point their parents shouldn't get them to. I passed a dad helping his young boy of about 4 to wee in someone's front garden on a main road. There was a pub and large health centre about 2 minutes walk away....I would not be happy if that was my front garden.

Tough one. I remember being out with mum as a child and I was desperate for a pee. I ended up squatting in an alley near a grid to do the deed. There were no shops nearby to go to. When a kid needs to go, a kid needs to go.

It's horrible.

Hmm yes an alley near a grate is one thing. But someone's front garden? When there was a large health centre and family friendly pub just across the road?

When my DD needs to go, she needs to go. If there's a public toilet (or one within a business) within about 5 minutes walk then I'll take her there.

However a lot of places insist that their toilets are for customers only.

If I can't get her to the toilet then I will take her somewhere semi private where she won't make much mess (eg grate in an alley) or for a nature wee. I won't let her wee on gardens/drives.

We have a large front garden as our house is set back well away from the road, I have lost count of the times that we have caught both adults and children relieving themselves, some have the grace to look ashamed when I ask "can I help you?"

Ds2 threw a bucket of water over 2 young women squatting when he was coming home after a night out, they threatened to call the police to report assault he said okay you explain why you are trespassing!

I saw someone squat and pee on the neighbours path a while back. Had the minging cow done it on my path she'd have got a bucket of water thrown over her grin
