Im soooooo annoyed!!!! I took my little girl to her weekly tots club today and got talking to one of the mums there, i mentioned that i'd just bought a brand new play pen for my little girl and explained what it was like, its got a huge floor space and the bars are quite close together. She looked at me like i'd just pushed her infront of a bus (just for the record i would never do anything like that!) She then went on to say that she has strong views about play pens, she sed she believes that i child can feel closed in like they are in a prision and that i wouldnt like it if i was behind bars and not got free rane. she also thinks it has mental repercusions on a child. Im sorry i had to moan but i just think its stupid!!! can anyone else think of anything they say not to do now that we have been doing for 100s of years?
