  • It sounds like lazy parenting.

  • I dont think she is crazy, maybe lazy and maybe a bit intimidated by the whole process of parenting. Now the morning pee thing I can kind of relate to , my son doesnt like going first thing in the morning but on the other hand I make him go regardless because its bad for his bladder and he needs to or else he will have an accident. Somethings kids dont like but you have to do it regardless to teach good habits and to help them grow up.

  • I have a boy that age, and I do struggle with him on brushing teeth. He wants to do it himself and really fights when I try to help.
