At a small playground earlier - designed for 7 and under (sign on the gate) DS (3) was playing with the sand and got in an older boy's way (he must have been about 9 - 10). older boy threatened as above. I told him not to do that and it wasn't a very nice thing to say, and would he like it if someone threatened to throw sand in his eye? his parents told me not to tell their son off and then frowned at me until they left the playground.

YANBU. I would have done the same thing. And then probably asked the older kid how old he was and pointed out that the sign said "7 and under". I've done that before when older kids were being unpleasant to my DTs (3) I don't care what their parents say - I'm not having my kids hurt in a playground FFS.

YANBU. People are sometimes tossers. End of.
