A soft play area that bans fathers:

Surely that can't be a sensible marketing idea?

When ours were little we often went together to soft play, it meant we could sit together and actually talk over a cup of coffee...... or their dad would take them to give me a couple of hours to find the carpet using some sort of dredging device.....

I can't believe this would work for them, - and for what purpose, 'cultural awareness'?  Really?  Do women feel threatened by men in these venues?  Do we think all men attending with their children might be predators? 

I really don't understand it at all.

A children's play centre has barred fathers from attending with their children and is now facing an investigation by equality watchdogs.

Kids Go Wild is believed to be the first such play centre in the country to introduce a ‘women only’ policy – which also bans boys over the age of nine.

Bosses at the centre, which opened less than a fortnight ago, claim the policy was instigated for ‘cultural reasons’ and was in the interests of the ‘predominantly Asian’ local community.
