so i work at a daycare and i have this mom who has a 4 1/2 year old boy who is still in diapers. She told me that she is just starting potty training. She hates potty training and waited this long for her other 2 boys. She also said she is just now taking him to a dentist. This boy also has black rotting teeth from eating so much chocolate. My question is what do you think about this? Is she a "bad mom"?? She also is hispanic and maybe its a cultural thing for her?? voice your opinions!!
PLEASE NOTE THAT I AM NOT TRYING TO OFFEND HISPANIC WOMEN!! I AM HALF HISPANIC BUT I HAVE NEVER HEARD OF WHAT SHE IS DOING.

That is the most ignorant thing I've even heard that it's a "cultural thing" to let a 4 1/2 parade around in diapers & rotten teeth. I'm half-Hispanic, too (& half white) you should know better.
I think she has bad parenting skills. His teeth are a health issue, she isn't caring for him properlly someone needs to say something, before she gets CPS called on her for neglect. The pottry-training is more of a gray area, but I think its pure laziness to put off potty training because it's not fun.
