Re: Would you be skeptical?

YES!! I would most definatly say something to both her and your nephew's mom! That's just wrong! It might not be a nice conversation, but that's totally uncalled for. I've threatened my kids with a spanking or a time out, but never physical harm and especially not at 3yrs old!

This is my argument (to myself ) I know she would most likely not do anything at all like that. But really why scream it at a 3yr old? And could you really be that frustrated after only telling him once not to get off the porch? I think I am more angry that the mom didn't say anything herself...I would have hit the roof! But it is pretty expected out of this "mom" to not care about anything that has to do with her children...so sad...I just don't understand how some people can birth a child and be completely careless & abusive.

well saying that is not okay at all although I wouldn't assume that just saying that comment makes that lady or the child's mother abusive. Definitely do not let her watch your LO in the future.

Re: Would you be skeptical?

My philosophy is to never threaten/warn (I don't usually threaten, just tell them what will be the consequence of their actions) with anything that I'm not prepared to follow through with.

The way I see it is this, people don't show their true sides in public until after awhile. If she is saying this in public without care, God only knows what she has said and done when she's behind closed doors and no one was there to listen. I feel sorry for her kids and sorrier for your nephew who needs a loving mother in his life.

I agree...although I wasn't saying my neighbor is abusive...but their mother has been known to be per her 7yr old (but who really knows for sure). I do know that DS doesn't care too much for my neighbor...which I thought was just grumpiness & wanting mommy. But almost every time she comes over he cries when she looks & talks to him. Now I don't think she has ever said/done anything to him, but have always wondered...can babies get a bad vibe from bad people and react uncomfy to those vibes? I haven't let her watch him in a long while b/c of that reason...I would never be able to rest my mind knowing he was uncomfy with the person I left him with.

I don't really feel it is my position to say anything unless I actually see something bad happen. I guess I just wanted opinions to see if I was over-reacting about my LO's future with this woman.

Thanks everyone for the advice
