I'd always prefer to be thought of as an interfering old bag, for telling a parent to take better care of their child, than have to give a statement to the police after an accident where a child is severely injured or even killed....I do think that the willingness to speak up to bad parents tends to come with age or with parenthood, as i didn't speak up much when I was younger. These days i don't give a monkey's, so I do ask parents to control their kids when they are running riot, or tell them that such-and-such a thing is dangerous.
