Cemetery used as a playground for kids

I have just seen the most disrespectful thing as I have driven past the Ballarat Cemetery.

Two primary-school-aged boys were using the baby head stones as hurdles.

My niece is laid to rest there and the sight of those boys treating it as a playground has spurred me to turn the car around ready to say something to them.

I went straight to the fence because it was the quickest way to approach them to get them to stop. As I got to the fence I saw that they were accompanied by a woman.

I was shocked and ended up going back to the car. What adult with any respect lets children do that.

What if a mother of one of those babies saw this. I may only be that child's aunty but it upset me greatly.
