Supermarkets urged to be understanding of families shopping with children
Clare Simpson, Manager of Parenting across Scotland, a coalition of family and children’s organisations working on issues which affect parents and carers in Scotland, said:
“We have been disturbed to hear reports from parents and carers about being challenged by staff and members of the public about taking their children to the shops with them. No one takes their children shopping for fun at the best of times, and this is far from being the best of times. If parents are shopping with their children, it’s likely to be because there’s no other option. All we’re asking is that people remember this and show families some compassion and kindness in these difficult times.”
