Depends on the circumstances.

If I felt it was safe I'd ask my kids to give up their seats for someone who needed it more.

@majorincident or get them to sit on your knee free up a seat

The mother was already standing but yes, take the child onto your knee.


@andyxhill: the whole bottom deck of a bus I was on got into a row I started with a lazy youth that wouldn't give up his seat for an old lady.  There are some things on which you need to take a stand.

The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars but in ourselves.

More than likely.  We seem to be slipping into selfish entitlement.  Public life is becoming ever more unpleasant because are just looking the other way.  The crowd can be ugly, but it can also exert pressure to do the right thing.

They would already know better and would have offered up the seat, with the younger one sitting on my lap (especially if it were a route were the bus can pick up a bit of speed) the older one could stand or they both could have my seat and I stand. If my children refused to give up their seat to an elderly person in need of it or a disabled person they would have a lesson in respect to stand them in better stead for the rest of their lives

As long as the children were not disabled and needing the seat as much as the oap, I would expect out of kindness that they at least ask the oap, if they refuse, at least the mum had asked. 


I was bought up at a time when it would go without saying, that if an OAP or a person who was in need of the bus seat would automatically be offered it, no debate, it was part of the respect and manners that is sadly lacking in society these days. 

Respect your elders was another.

But saying that, I've seen my elders not earn the respect I was brought up to show them. 🤔

She sais she was worried because the child had fallen and banged its head, children at that age are not particularly steady on a moving bus. Why couldn’t one of the other passengers stood and offered her a seat?
