  • I think it's gross too. I dont understand why people don't dress their children. I Know some kids hate clothes, my sister was one of those stripping kids, but she knew never to do it in public!

  • Ick no. I wouldn't bring my son out of the house without his pants on either.

  • That is disgusting. That's really a big pet peeve of mine. Adults need shirt and shoes for service. No one should be out in public without clothing. Anyone who is actually walking (in the store) should be wearing shoes.

  • No, I wouldnt b/c that is really gross. But I have seen several people lately doing this.

    One was a boy about 3, walking around the mall food court with bare feet.

    the only thing I could think was either his parents were too lazy to put them on him, or he pitched such a fit that his parents gave in to him....either way....bad parenting.

  • Do you know the situation? Maybe the child had a really bad diarrhea accident and they didnt have extra pants or shoes. Maybe they were getting more for him then. No, this is not the case with every child. It is gross, the floors of walmart have been found to have salmonella and ecoli all over them. I would have put my child on my hip, carried him to get new pants and a pair of shoes, paid for it and put them on him and then completed my grocery shopping. Don't pass judgment on something you have no knowledge of.

  • I was at the grocery store the other day and there was a girl in front of me in line with her 3 yr old daughter with only shorts on. No shoes, no shirt. It's trashy. And hell no, I would NOT let my kids go in public without shirt, pants or shorts, and shoes!!!!
