potty training 2.jpg

Okay so many of you read my post about the dad who pulled out the potty in the middle of a Timmies parking lot and agreed that this really isn’t the best way to teach your child how to use the toilet.

Well this morning I read about something even worse! I know, I know, how could anything be worse than that?  Well let me assure you once you read this article and watch the video (if you dare) you will be even more shocked and completely outraged!
We all try to teach of children proper table manners but obviously this mother doesn’t know a thing about them!  She is teaching her children to use the potty at a restaurant table!
Are you as shocked as I am?  This is beyond strange and crazy.  This is downright disturbing!
This doesn’t warrant a WTH? But more like a WTF????!!!!!
Is it just me or are you outraged by this?  Would this not be illegal somehow?  To place apotty on a restaurant chair is one thing but to strip them down as well for all in the restaurant to see? How is that not a crime? Exposing your child to everyone!  Honestly I can’t decide which upsets me more – having them go to the potty at the table or stripping them down.
What are your thoughts about this mother and her behaviour?
Until next time,

    I shudder to think of what the home life must be like as well.

    Couldn’t agree more Tracey!

    More than anything, I feel incredibly sorry for the child. How humiliating! Also, if those are the kind of bounderies the mother pushes in public, imagine the home life :(

    That is the grossest thing ever. First of all, that’s completely unsanitary – potties of any kind shouldn’t be where FOOD is, ohmygod. And in public places? Stripped down naked at a restaurant table? I mean, really!! I tell you, the world is getting entirely too casual, that someone would have a notion that such a thing would be okay. Holy crap. Why not just kick your shoes off and clip your toenails while you’re sitting there too?
    Some people have no dense of decorum at all. Yuck.
