Parenting Fail: Mum potty trains her daughters at restaurant dinner table!
Potty training can be a laborious process for most parents, but one mum has taken toilet training a step too far after sitting her daughters on portable potties – whilst eating dinner in the middle of a restaurant!
Despite sitting in a busy restaurant, an unidentified mum in Utah stripped her twin daughters, sat them on plastic potties and encouraged them to do their business whilst they were still eating their dinner.
The shocking scene was captured by blogger Kimberly Decker, who posted the photo on her blog and Facebook, which quickly got shared across the world.
“It didn’t quite register at first what was happening, but when I took a second glance I realized this is NOT OK! I decided to snap a picture of the whole incident and then later that afternoon as a ‘joke’ I decided to post it on Facebook. I couldn’t believe the response I got,” Kimberly wrote.
Now many mums will have sympathy that potty training can be a trying time for all involved – but is it really OK to do this in public, let alone a restaurant when people are trying to eat?
Even if your little one just had to go – would you not take the portable toilet to the bathroom away from prying eyes? Or are we not being fair?
Is it ever ok to potty train in public? And have you ever seen another mother do the same? Let us know your thoughts.
