Tori58, yes, I totally agree. The world is a treacherous place and I know parents can watch like a hawk and things can still happen. But no harm in my saying "I wonder how well they were watching" and "hopefully not on their phone..." I can think that if I want to.

In these times, we ALL should decrease or eliminate saying, "but I just turned around for a second..." Whatever we have to do at that moment can either wait OR we take the child with us by the hand, then walk back and continue OR whatever it is.

My SO and talk about his siblings and their kids from time to time. We're astounded that nothing bad's happened to his nieces they way his siblings and their spouses are. Heck, my SO knows I'm astounded that nothing negatively life-changing happend to HIM in his childhood with his loser parents who aren't really parents. He agrees.
