Man sparks outrage as he says 'kids sitting in trolleys should be banned'

The post quickly amassed more than 1,900 comments with the majority of people disagreeing with him.

In response to his status, one person said: "Well take it up with the supermarket so they can provide better trolleys for parents instead of coming on here mum shaming."

Another said: "It's like a rite of passage for children. The bigger the trolley, the more kids can fit in. My record is 11 kids: two in the kids' seats, three in the trolley, 5 hanging off the sides (two on each side and one at the front) and of course, one in a carry-car seat, hanging from the bag hook under the handle."

While a third wrote: "Sorry but as a twin mum, I often had no choice but to put one or both in the trolley where there were no double-seated or even single-seated trolleys.

"Thank goodness everyone was always very kind to me as they could clearly see I had few other options. Most of the time I did it because I was so worried about someone telling me off for my kids getting in their way if they were toddling alongside the trolley.

"And because I didn't want them to get hurt if someone knocked into them whilst they were trying to walk (believe me this happens A LOT).

"But hey if approaching other people and ruining their day because you're worried about a 'dirty' trolley is what gets you off..."

One mum commented: "I have a 2 and 3-year-old. Unless the 2-seater trolleys are available, my eldest is going in the trolley. Unless you want parents walking through the aisles at 2 miles an hour and kids running everywhere."

"You've clearly never been in charge of a toddler in a food shop. They're feral. Poor mams are just trying to get out alive," added another.
