Yes,we should all just be like you,find someone to pick on behind their back,hide our names and back bite about stuff that is not our business,but if you was so concerned why didn't you call the police on her? coward pos.

Even though it should be, it isn't a crime to be an unsafe parent.

The entire time the woman was in the store, except when she was talking to her friend, she was looking at her phone. The entire time she was in the store, her daughter was standing up in the cart. That isn't multitasking, that's too busy with her phone to care about her daughter. I don't care what anyone says, this child is being neglected. This woman has more important things to do than take care of a bratty kid, apparently.
So what did you do, follow this woman around the whole time she was there...I find that a little creepy. You really need to get a life outside of the grocery store.

Please learn to read. I hate having to repeat myself.

I wasn't following her. I just happened to see her several times during my grocery trip . Every time I saw her- child standing in cart with a pacifier, mother staring at her phone. Say i was stalking, whatever. I just happened to notice terrible parenting, that's all.

On a separate note, I do not know whether she breastfed her child. From what I saw in the store, however, I would say she only formula fed. Probably didn't even hold the kid and propped the bottle.
I will admit 8 years old for breast feeding is a little old. 5 years old, though, is perfectly normal. They call them "milk teeth" for a reason.
Actually in post 49 you said "The entire time the woman was in the store, except when she was talking to her friend, she was looking at her phone. The entire time she was in the store, her daughter was standing up in the cart." So if you saw her the entire time in the store, why were you following her.?

First of all I know how to read. Secondly, you stated the whole time she was in the store. I didn't see the other comment you posted after that. It is really kind of hard keeping up with your post anyways. You started out with the kid having a paci in its mouth, to standing up in the cart, to the mother constantly being on the phone. Then you said the whole time she was in the store she was doing this, till someone questioned you stalking her, then you said, you just happen to see her several times. I think you are making this stuff up as you go. Let's see what else this woman has done so bad (outside of her child standing up in the cart). Everyone seems to agree that that was wrong, but that was the only thing she done wrong.

I haven read all the posts on here but I have a couple of questions for he person that started this thread.
1. How do you know the child's age?
Some kids look older than they are. My nephew for example, is 3 and a 1/2 but he wears the same size clothes as my almost 6 year old. He's just as tall as my son too and he talks well for a kid his age. Most people assume he's older than what he is. So unless you know the child, it may be hard to know its age. The child also could have had some kind of developmental delay that meant the kid isn't developmentally 4 years old.
2. If you thought this child was in danger, why didn't you do more than follow the lady around the store?
Abuse and neglect are serious issues and it makes me sick to think about a child being mistreated or unloved. But I don't think you have enough grounds to accuse someone of being a bad mother based solely on what you saw in a grocery store. It sounds like this mom wasn't paying proper attention to her child, which is bad and can be potentially dangerous but inattention isn't a crime unless the child gets injured, which is also sad but true.
The bottom line is, don't presume you know what's going on based on an encounter with a stranger in the Kroger. Now if you'd seen her beating the kid or screaming at them or the child was in imminent danger, that's different.
