First off, we are both young moms. She just turned 18 and I am 19. She has a son who is almost two. We have known eachother since sixth grade. Well I guess in the back of my mind, ever since she became a mom, I have felt really disgusted by her. She treats her son like crap. She never changes his diaper when she is supposed to (we were at the mall and i smelled poop on him the entire time, but she only changed in once i kept saying something), he is an absolute mess from head to toe (dirty clothes, stains, food all over his face), and she doesnt really interact with him, never says anything nice or even talk to him. I am so much the opposite. I love my baby and I take good care of her, I make sure her diaper is never wet, I clean up after her, I take pride in how she looks, and I constantly try to talk to her and teach her things.
Ive known her so long, but I dont think I can put up with it anymore. What should I do?

You know I don't care how old you are or young. You have stepped up to the plate and you sound like you are doing the job of parenting and your friend isn't doing so well. I would make a call if you feel that it is at that point that she may need someone else to step in and give her a hand call CPS. other then that is there a family member of hers that you can talk to about this? I would maybe go that root if you are able to. GL
