You know those indoor playground-type places where they have ball pits, slides, and the like? Well, a mom in the U.K. is outraged after she visited one of them at the Colchester Zoo -- and was told that her 4-year-old autistic son had to wear socks. Let me explain.
The zoo has a policy that all of the children playing there have to wear socks for hygiene reasons, you know, because feet are disgusting no matter how little they are. But Tamsin Moore explains that her son, Archie, cannot stand to have anything on his feet -- which is why he immediately takes off his socks whenever he is inside.
And when a manager at the zoo told her that Archie either had to put socks on or she would be required to follow him around the play area, Tamsin stormed out and is vowing never to return to the facility.
