We already insist on this at some of our smaller local events in Trimaris, and are planning on implementing it at Kingdom events soon. If at any point we dont have a volunteer available, we line up all the kids and walk them back to their parents...it didnt take many times of showing up at the lyst feild and handing a child over to a knight about to fight for the parents to start falling over themselves to schedule "thier" time.
