I went shopping at around 5pm with my two children.My nine year old son and three year old daughter.

While I was in the clothing my son was pushing the cart. He decided to get in the shopping cart. He stood at the edge to get out and the cart tipped over. He banged his head on the floor and had a bloody nose.

The team handled it pretty well. They gave us ice and helped stop the bleeding.

This is not what this complaint is about However they told me that my son is not allowed to step in their shopping cart.None of this would have happened if they had more child friendly shopping carts.

:grin i work at a walmart and parents should'nt be so ***.first of all your are not at amusement park and shopping carts are not a ride.

teach your children they are to be helped in and out of the cart and make them listen. while your at it teach them how not to scream in public other customers and employees don't want to hear them or you screaming back at them. yes i have children and i did have to teach them right from wrong.

tell me how embarrassed were you when you had to explain the truth to the safety team?after all you are on camera!


Are you kidding??Half way thru reading this I was thinking "Is this a troll?" You CAN'T be serious lady.

First of all - a 9 year old doesn't belong in a shopping cart. AT ALL. Second, it isn't the stores fault (I can't believe I am defending Walmart) that you ignored the warning signs about NOT letting kids climb in/stand in the cart - and then ALLOWED (not watching your kid is the same as allowed) your kid to climb in and stand in the cart - then acted surprised when it tipped over and he got hurt! This is ALL ON YOU.

The incident entirely - as well as not already instilling into your 9 year old the dangers on climbing into/standing in carts - as well as proper store behavior when they are 9 years old. Btw - was your 3 year old sitting in the child seat when the cart tipped? You don't mention her. If she was hurt - THAT is your fault too.

Or was she climbing around the cart as well?Maybe you didn't mention her cuz she was running around the toy aisle on the other side of the store....don't blame Walmart when she gets hurt.


You had a brain.

A Nine year old has no business being in the shopping cart.

Plus all walmart shopping carts have warnings. warning you not to do exactly what your child was doing.

Make you child walk next time and keep an eye on him while your at it


As a mother, you are responsible for watching your children. Don't blame Walmart for something you should have been doing from the start. If you let your child climb into the cart, and he or she falls out of it, the responsibility lies solely with you.


With children consistency is key.Before going into the store with a child, "The Talk" goes along way to keeping you from headaches while you run your errands.

In this case it would have also keep the child from head aches.:grin


Actually it is the child's fault he fell. Not the mothers

that's right after all she wasn't watching him why should it be her fault. kinda like when a kid throws a rock thru your window why would the parents be responsible for replacing it? :p

We are talking about a nine year old who has more common sense not a three year old unaware of danger, a nine year old knows when you stand on the edge of a cart you will fall out because of your weight.


Did the store employees give your nine year old a binki or did they end up giving it to you for all your whining?
