  • A true friend would say something. It would be better hearing it from a friend theDYFS

  • Just keep your mouth shut. She might start a fight with you. She should buckle her kids though. Maybe ask her if she needs help buckleing her kids in if she's with you in the car.

  • Were you driving? I would never have started the car until the kids were all safely in their car seats. Being the driver, you would get in trouble for that if you were to get pulled over. Some people call the police with license numbers of cars where kids aren't buckled up.

  • If you wonder where the kids are when she's sleeping all day then go over and find out or send CPS. Don't allow those children to be alone and hungry or be playing with matches or drinking bleach while the great mom is asleep. Let cps decide if she's a good mom

  • Personally, I don't let anyone ride in my car without being buckled in. So, next time they ride in your car, you should INSIST on the kids being in car seats.

  • Maybe to her, her parenting is fine because that's all she knows. If in your presence the children aren't buckled in the car properly, take the initiative and buckle the child up yourself. I know its not your responsibility but like I've said before, maybe the type of parenting she's doing is the only parenting that she knows...
