I have a friend who is a single mom, at the beginning I was baby sitting for her for free 50+ hours a week while she worked. She began to take advantage of that and long story short was not making moves to further improve her and her daughter's life like getting her daughter's birth certificate to get child support, spending money on clothes for herself and then asking me for money for rent. I stopped baby sitting for her, gave her time to find a new solution. Well, she is trading baby sitting with a friend from work which is good at least she is giving back to a person that is helping her.
Here is the problem. The two boys she is watching, plus her daughter all have to fit in one car with three large car seats and that has forced her to put her daughter in the front seat of her car which is illegal and she knows it and I have sat there and listened to her bash her friends who have done this. I've tried saying something to her and she just shrugs it off. (I'm not in a position to help her carpool). BUT the other day I was out and saw her driving with her daughter in the front seat and no excuse for her not to be in the back.
Should I report this, stay out of it? If I should, who should I report it too??? I'm not trying to run her life for her, I'm just concerned for her daughter's safety. Her daughter is 15 months old.
