I have 2 children who are 2.5 and the other just turned 4. My friends often arrange days out to the park but they only have the 1 child. But I really struggle with taking both of mine to big parks. Small ones where I can see them both is fine but they often go to really big parks where it would be impossible to keep an eye on them both at the same time. My 2 year old wants to sit in the swing most of the time whereas my 4 year old wants to run around. If we go to the big parks, I just can't see them both if it's just me with them so I generally avoid it. Don't get me wrong, when we go to small parks, I generally sit down while they run around. I don't need them within arm's reach, I just want to be able to see them. I just wondered how you manage this? I wonder if I'm overreacting but I'm 100% uncomfortable with not having them in sight at all times.
