What little changes could make life easier for parents? Example- for the first time in ages I went shopping without kids. I was able to take stairs and scalators, not have to worry about cramming a pram into toilets, didn't have to think if a highchair would be free... At my city centre car park, there's only one small lift to get out. On a busy Saturday, that makes life really hard for pram users-and of course people who use wheelchairs. Today the lift was broken. Easy enough for me to us the stairs today, but it's a really long steep flight. How is a mum/dad with a pram and say a 3 year old supposed to cope? Carry the kids up and just leave them while she gets the pram up? Yes, people were helping, but how do you know if that friendly stranger has theft or worse on his mind? And couldn't slightly wider parking spaces make it easier to get car seats in and out? And seating for feeding mums, whether breast or bottlefeeding somewhere to sit down would be good. I know some might say it's whinging and that it's people's own choice to have kids(and we do have it easier in some ways than previous generations), but just these few changes could make life so much easier. Let's face it, people shopping with kds are usually going to spend money, so shouldn't facilities be provided? My friend who does use a wheelchair says she reckons that planners should have to think about things like this (and she actually advises on builds, for free for the benefit of other disabled people) and many of the things I mention eg cars toilets, travelling up and down lifts cause difficulties for both parents and wheelchair users, and she has 3 kids, so I guess the particular centre I'm talking about would be a nightmare for her. But anyone else g ot any other things that are particular bugbears, maybe that you wouldn't have noticed in the pre baby days?
