    I have a dcg that is constantly dressed in things that are way too small for her.
    Her mother thinks she's super tiny and petite but she's not. She's totally a nice normal haerty size. Also, mom is a PA. They are not strapped for cash. It annoys me.

        Are they low income? When I was growing up my mom would have to buy us shoes that were one size too big and We’d stuff it with tissues. That’s one of those things that stayed with me and I don’t care if I don’t have money, my kids will have clothes and shoes that fit.

        if not - then shame on them 😡

          SAHM, your comments made me think of my own upbringing of mostly hand-me-downs.....maybe that is a good reason.

          Far from low income!

        I had a DCM who did the opposite. She would find cute shoes on sale that she couldn't pass up and squeeze her daughter's foot into them when they were clearly one size too small! Her daughter was always complaining of her feet hurting and have sores on them from the shoes. I would tell DCM she needs better shoes that fit and sometimes she would show up in decent shoes, but still half the time wouldn't. She would blame DCG and say she was throwing a fit and wanted to wear whatever cutsie shoe she had on that were way too tight. Of course by the time we had to go outside she was taking them off and trying to run around barefoot because her feet were hurting. It's because of this I started buying extra shoes or rainboots on sale to put kids in that didn't have proper shoes for play. Some parents just lack common sense I guess 🙄

          I hate when parents dont dress their children for success. Having the most complicated clothing on a potty trained child is irritating, especially when they start crying in the bathroom that they cant get something off/on.

            I have a potty training handout and I go over the requirements for training. It includes, no dresses (as they dangle in toilet), not snaps, buttons, zippers - only fully elastic waistband. If child shows up in clothing that doesn't work for potty training, I say something like: looks like we're in diapers today, we'll try again tomorrow when child has easy to remove bottoms. If parent can't even dress child for success, then I figure they aren't taking the process seriously. If parents and I aren't on the same page, then I don't start until they are.

          Some subscribe to the "No shoes until two" for proper toe development and only really use them to meet mandatory daycare health and safety rules. Some just put minimal effort into everything I suppose.

            I’ve had this. For both big and small. One family put their 1.5 month old in 4t clothing. It was ridiculous. No money issues.

            And I’m going to sound like such a judgey B word with this one but whatever. I had one mom that always made sure she looked good. Hair done up, make up, nails done, super sleezy work clothes, but her son barely had clothes that fit him. Forgot his coats/hats/shoes. He stunk so bad from lack of baths. He was a big boy so he sweated profusely during the warm months. He needed a bath every day. By Thursday I could barely stomach his smell. It was ridiculous.

              I have this mom now. She dresses like a single mom, always wearing dresses and heels… trying to wrangle not one, but two toddlers in a car/car seats.

              I changed her son’s diaper one day and OMG the smell. We all know the musty-not-bathed-in-days smell. This wasn’t the first time either. I couldn’t stand it anymore so I implemented a hygiene policy. Since I implemented the policy, I haven’t smelled him.

              She’s expecting their third child with her husband - a girl. Her oldest son gets Walmart shoes and the other son gets the hand-me-down cheap shoes from big brother. Nothing wrong with that at all! But the baby, that’s still in the womb, has at least two pair of *glittery* Dr. Martens that she bragged about on social media. They’re at least a toddler size 10… did I mention the child is still in the womb?!

              Again, nothing wrong with any of it. But I am a firm believer in making sure your kids are taken care of first. I am also big on making sure all of your kids have the same quality of life.

                Whats your hygiene policy?

                Yea it’s ridiculous really. I’m big on treating kids the same too. This was the same mom who had an older daughter by another man who was in prison. I watched her during summer and school breaks. And her daughter had a lot of behavioral issues. She was on medicine, but a lot was the trashy environment she was in too. Anyway, the mom would put her down all of the time in front of me. Prop her son up over her daughter. I can’t remember what she said now but it wasn’t nice and squashed her self esteem.
                The mom got so much attention though. Even at my house. Can’t tell you how many calls my husband got from people he knew asking about the bombshell in the white car at my house. lol. 🙄 Yea bombshell with a personality of a snail and major entitlement issues. Have fun with that. 🤣

                  Lol! She is what she is. 🤷🏼‍♀️ I didn’t hate her but she threw a lot of little fits. Slammed my front door once too. I was glad she left.

                For the health and wellbeing of everyone, all children must arrive at daycare clean, in good health, and in clean (proper fitting) attire. Children should be bathed regularly and their oral hygiene maintained daily. Their fingernails must be trimmed, filed and maintained. If your child’s hygiene is not maintained, you will be called for pick-up.
