I posted a question earlier about parents who cuss at their kids or are verbally abusive and it reminded me of something else that is kind of on that order.....
A former friend of mine lived with me for a few months last year and she was one of the laziest parents I have ever seen -- she had 2 girls, ages 1 and 3 and she never did ANYTHING with them. All she ever did was yell at them, boss them around, and lay on my couch playing on her lap top all day.
I felt so bad for her oldest daughter because she was so lazy she made her daughter pretty much do everything for her -- all I ever heard was her yelling at her 3 yr old to go get a diaper for her sister, go get her a soda out of the refrigerator, go upstairs to the bedroom and get her cigarettes(!!!), go get the remote control, etc, etc. It seemed like the only time she talked to them was to yell at them or make them do something for her!
Isn't that ridiculous?!

hmmm... well we have choirs for a our 10yr old and she helps us out when we ask, but not to the extent of what you where saying. for one I would never let any child of mine under the age of 7 go up and down stairs without my going with them. I am a paranoid mother and I know anything can happen. Also, I don't like my kids touching anything to do with cigs or alcohol. and to answer you question, no I do not know anyone who does that.
