I was at the mall yesterday with my son, just two of us alone and I took him to the play area so he could play. There are a bunch of other kids playing and they all look three or four. The parent sitting close to me says "All these kids have diapers on, whats with that?" I was left speechless and didn't know what to say so I said instead "My son isn't in them" and she says "Mine isn't either" and she points out each kid that has one on.
It was interesting she knew they had diapers on and I didn't take notice. Then I noticed their big butts and I just assumed they were their normal butts. Then finally I saw this one chubby girl and she looked to be about my son's age looking at her fingers and then her pants ride down and her size 6 diaper shows.
It's common today for kids to still be in diapers at three or four but that is still a common debate in the parenting community about when kids should be out of diapers by and parents get all judge when a kid is still in them.
I was also wearing a diaper and I wonder how she would have reacted if she saw I had one on. But I had on overalls so I had no way for them to stick out if I bent down. I just felt this situation to be ironic. But going by the tone, she sounded critical like she didn't approve and she called it ridiculous. I didn't even say some kids are trained late and some are hard to train or are not ready because this is a controversial issue among parents. I honestly didn't care which kid was still in diapers or not so I didn't have any opinion about it. I am just glad I still don't have to buy them for my son or change them or wash them like those parents do.
