In the 80’s, stores are just mere shops that sell clothes, appliances, toys and housewares and nothing more. They are housed in one building but separated by departments with the likes of Wal-Mart and Kohl’s to name a few. And today, it comes a long way for we already have malls that house various specialty stores in it. They have separate stores for every specialty like hardware, children’s apparel, ladies apparel, lingerie etc.
What is very notable nowadays is the addition of many kiddie centers where you can leave your child there to play while parents go shopping. These centers are manned by certified caregivers or caretakers who are patient and kind enough to attend to their needs. They see to it that they are safe while playing, sees to it that they are fetched by the authorized guardians. They are expected to comply with the safety standards set by the state or county and the building management itself regarding playground safety for children and the rest of the safety standards that are applicable and appropriate.
However, these safety precautions should and always be maintained and that it is indeed observed by these institutions. And centers like this really lighten up the burden of some parents who tag their kids along every time they go shopping. Regular inspection by authorities should also be done as to prevent untoward circumstances to happen just like what happened to a certain daycare center inside the mall that cost the lives of many children.
