October Mott Poll

New from the Mott Poll: Half of parents have declined kids' playdate invitations

Parents' top concerns about playdates include children being unsupervised, hearing inappropriate language, getting into harmful substances, and getting injured. Half of parents have declined a playdate because they did not feel comfortable leaving their child in the other parent's care. Only 1 in 4 parents have been asked about safety issues by another parent before a playdate.
