Picture of Toddlers’ Potty Training in the Middle of a Restaurant Dining Room Goes Viral
The Blaze ^ | 9/6/12 | Liz Klimas

Posted on 09/06/2012 12:54:30 PM PDT by bigbob

Potty training is often considered an unpleasant task facing parents, but under current social norms, it has to be done. And like most bathroom activities, it’s usually a private event.

One mother of twins in Utah, though, took her training public, placing her daughters on potty training toilets — you know, the plastic seats with a little toilet lid — at a public restaurant’s table. KSL-TV reports Kimberly Decker, who was in the restaurant at the time, snapped a photo of this disturbing scene and posted it on Facebook.

Poor kids. They are going to be slapping their idiot Mom up the side of the head when they are teenagers and some jealous high school “friend” decides she wants to embarrass them.

I distinctly remember either hiring a babysitter or dropping my kids off at my mom’s when they were at that age.I would not have carried one toddler potty with me, much less two!
Geez, woman, either go home for lunch or leave them in their diapers until lunch is over then change them in the restroom.

I would have taken my dinner to her table and dropped it on her table.

Believe me, I would have.

I suppose you could say they are ignorant, but that just doesn’t seem to be enough.

And I thought it was strange when I saw the same thing in the parking lot at Harris Teeter. The mother at least had the potty in the back of an SUV, but she could have closed the door maybe!

I saw an idiot parent moment yesterday evening at the local Walmart Pharmacy. I was stopping by to pick up my mother's prescriptions when I noticed a haggy tattooed redneck toothless woman having her son try on pairs of reading glasses and asking him to look off at signs on the wall (far away) to find the pair that worked best... Some people just shouldn't breed..

Self absorption. It’s all about me. Beginning with the mom and being taught to the kids.

Most younger women don’t know how to cook a lick, and I wouldn’t be surprised if throwing some frozen chicken nuggets on a baking sheet for twenty minutes was beyond her.

HOW would a person logistically get the two toddlers and two toilet seat contraptions all out of the car and into the restaurant in the first place?

And I can only imagine it was done FOR the attention, because it would be too much effort for any other reason.

My high school had Home Economics class. And they even made us guys take a semester. And it was not exactly ancient history.

That breaks my heart to read that. Most mothers really do care about their children.

BTW - about 100 years ago children used to potty train well before the age of 2 years. Boys and girls alike wore what looked like dresses. hmmm...

If she does this in public just imagine what the home is like.

Either that or when Mom is in a nursing home, the kids can take her out and put her on the potty chair in the middle of a restaraunt.

p.s. “breaks my heart” refers to the woman trying to find eye glasses in the drug store for her child. She’s trying.

My Obama-supporting moonbat sister-in-law engages in this kind behavior. Maybe not the potty training part, but exposing her breasts for feeding time - anywhere, any company. Its part self-absorption, part self-righteous crusading. Her values trump others’ values because she’s special. Guaranteed these people are similar moonbats.

Some people just shouldn't breed..

A sad situation...who knows why this poor woman doesn't understand the various types of lenses. However, that doesn't make her evil or less than priceless. This statement seems to belong to those who are attending this week's biggest political pep rally, not to any member of this forum.

How about grossly inconsiderate? Ya think?

There is enough fecal matter in food as it is!

Now, some idiotic fringe group will spring up demanding the right to crap in public places. It'll be in the DNC platform in 2016.

Since “crap in public places” was mentioned, did you hear about the Big Sh*tty lawyer who walked down teh sidewalk during the summer to the restaurant around the block from his office?

He stepped into a large pile of dog exhaust.

What did he say?

The correct answer is: He screamed, “OMG! I’m melting!”

Such is the slippery slope.
Remember those arguments? They were talking about breast-feeding in public back then. Now, today, it's potty training. And the same arguments apply. What will tomorrow bring? There's a reason clothes were invented and civilized societies adopted their use. It's high time we quit bucking the systems that are tried and true.

My ex and I were visiting a couple years ago. They just had a newborn son and we were pregnant at the time.

anyway, in the midst of the conversation she whips out her....breast, to feed her son. I turn my face away being embaressed. “What”, she said, “You’ve never seen a tit before?”

I’ll give you three guesses what political affiliation she belonged to, by the way the first two don’t count.
