    Text - okekai 3h We offered to rent a room to a buddy of ours while he was going through his divorce. I walked into the kitchen to find his daughter (7 years old) asking me to feed her because she's hungry. I was the only other person home, so I fed her and called him to see where the hell he was at. He was at the bar... He left his daughter at home, told no one.

    Text - EffortlessCool 3h This woman who I assumed was the little girl's grandma kept dunking her granddaughter underwater at a hotel pool despite the girl's constant screaming and crying, totally oblivious to the fact that it was disturbing the entire hotel.

    Text - therazorsedge404 3h At a coffee shop, I saw a kid tell his mother that he needed to pee. Mom tells the kid to piss in a flower pot inside of the shop... and he promptly did while she carried on eating her breakfast as if nothing was wrong. Worst part is not only am I sure that she knows where the bathrooms are, this idiot had just came with her kid from their home in the building where the coffee shop is!

    Text - Sexcalator 4h Couple people from different parts of my life. A girl I worked with briefly was one of the most memorable. She was a few years older than me, and completely manipulated by her mother. If her mom didn't want her to come to work? She'd call out, to do whatever her mother wanted her to do that day, whether it be drive her around or stick around at home to clean the house while her mom watched. If her mom thought she was faking anything, sickness or whatever she should have call

    Text - Knight_Hawke3h Saw a little girl fall down the stairs at a ski resort. She was clearly having trouble carrying her skis and poles. Father proceeds to scream at her, "What are you doing?! Those are expensive." Then he just stood there impatiently huffing as she picked her self up, awkwardly trying to carry her skis and poles and running after him looking ashamed.

    Text - syvvsavv 3h I know a few parents who refuse to say no to their children, giving them everything they want. You only have apple juice in the house but they want fruit punch? Will go to the store and get it right then. It's ridiculous that the kids run the house.

    Text - Jauxerous 4h My best friend was spoiled rotten by his dad. For his 15th birthday he got a top of the line laptop for $3k. Friend threw a hissy fit because he also wished for a moped. Naturally his father bought him a derbi senda x-treme a few days later. He got everything he pointed at. Nowadays he's 28 and still has 0 respect for money, had a gambling addiction for a decade, debts up to his neck etc. He's taught to live in the fast lane and it has been fucking him over ever since he beca

    Text - ninjaplease26 3h Last night I spent two hours in the hospital with a 14 year old girl that tried to kill herself, because know both of her parents are fuckups and couldn't be there for one shitty reason or another. But I was there, because she needed someone. Her mom is a drunk 24/7 and works second shift, hasn't been there as a parent in years, the Dad is on the run from the law and not allowed in the state she lives in. She is one of the smartest and coolest kids ever, it shouldn't have

    Text - juggilinjnuggala 4h lady I knew drank her entire pregnancy, her excuse was it's cool because it was just "hard sparkling water" she'd always down whole bottles of wine to herself. She then brought the baby to a outdoor cookout when it was about 4 days old, got drunk and drove herself, her newborn, and her other daughter home. I fucking hate her so much

    Text - SpandexPanFried 3h Working in a supermarket I sawa woman with her <3 year old who was toddling around. The mom said to the child "go get some salt", and the daughter eagerly toddled over to grab some. She brought back a bag of salt and the mom loudly screamed "NOT THAT ONE YOU CUNT" in front of a whole load of people in the aisle and store. My mouth just dropped open, it was so surreal. I informed the security guys but I don't know if anything came of it. The barrier to entry for parentho

    Text - robbdire 3h I've seen a 5 year old, bring their younger sibling into school so they can have a breakfast It angers me more than I can explain that a child of 5 is getting their young sibling up, washed, dressed, and into a school so they can have a breakfast.

    Text - Primarycoverts 3h My dad blames me for being raped at 14. Because I didnt tell my parents (a normal response from a child who has been molested because they fear getting in trouble) so it "must not have been that bad"

    Text - StevenHuffman 4h Being at the autopsy of the 2 year old who pulled a dresser down on himself because the parents were "napping" aka faded from drugs. Oh, and he wasn't crushed. It was positional asphyxiation. So he stayed there and suffocated for about 5 minutes The thing with adult autopsies is the visual weight of the open torso. A bright red open rib cage. A child is different. The head is much bigger proportionally. The greatest visual weight was actually his big mop of blonde hair on

    Text - Collooo 3h A boy aged about 5 wouldn't follow his mum into a shop, he literally stood back about 10m from her while she was shouting at him to follow her. I remember his face, he was scared, the only reason he didn't move is because his mother was there shouting at him, she then marched over to him and slapped him quite hard around the face then dragged him into the shop. No wonder he didn't want to follow her into the shop, he wanted space from violence. I didn't have a son at the time b

    Text - IQ818 3h It was about 15 years ago when I was in high school. We were all coming out of school and a woman was passing by with a 5 year old boy. The child seemed a bit overwhelmed by the crowds of people all of a sudden surrounding him and went to grab his mothers hand. The mother wouldn't hold his hand and instead started yelling at him "Don't you worry baby, in about 10 years all these girls will be dropping their panties for you." The poor kid looked so scared and confused. I've never

    Text - Lv_36_Charizard 4h I know a kid who's an only child. His parents do everything for him. Plate his food, cut it up for him etc. His mom doesn't work so she puts everything into taking care of this guy. The problem is that she still talks and interacts with him like he's 5 years old. As a result he's this super sheltered, socially awkward 13 year old. Talking to him you'd think he was 9. I feel bad for the guy. He's about to go into high school and I can already tell he's going to be one of

    Text - VeritasUnitasCaritas 4h My half brother came to visit from up north. His son was around 6. The kid did something to piss his dad off and my half brother KICKED HIM. He just up and kicked him in the side. As if that wasn't CPS worthy enough, he then screamed at him for crying. I'm still embarrassed that I didn't say anything. 1.6k Reply

    Text - AllieBallie22 4h Had a second grade student who used to come in with coffee every morning. After talking to the mom about how that might not be the best way for a 7 year old (with an IEP for ADHD) to start his day, she finally agreed...and switched to a 20 ounce bottle of Mountain Dew instead.
