Yes. I mean, if the "kid" is in the process of being potty trained, a competent parent would be prepared for mishaps like this. Either with pull-ups, or another method. Even if not properly prepared, the mom had a choice... and she chose the choice of risking it with the law than the safer option of letting the child pee in private.

That mother made a bad choice. She got caught. She's the one making a huge deal out of this, not the cop. With the number of people defending this woman, all of our public parking lots are probably stained with human pee and pooh. It's bad enough that people let their dogs do this. Disgusting behavior. I applaud the cop.

Ew, unless you needed to pick up a life saving medication or something why wouldn't you just take the kid home and clean him up? Unless you happen to have a spare outfit tucked away in the car for such emergencies?

I'm pretty sure most parents keep extra clothes in a diaper bag of sorts when out with their kids. Accidents can and will happen.
And it doesn't have to be pee or number 2 either. Can be something like spilling chocolate milk all over one's clothes. There's always an extra outfit in the trunk for the kids. Even to this day.

If you're the kind of parent prepared with an extra outfit wouldn't you be the kind of parent prepared for an unplanned potty need?

Yes. BUT, during that "transition" stage, you WANT your child to get used to wearing underwear. You want to encourage him/her to not be comfortable just "letting it go" while sitting anywhere due to the security of a diaper. Therefore, underwear it is. But, toddlers being toddlers, sometimes they just don't tell you anything until they ABSOLUTELY HAVE TO GO NOW! lol

BTW, this never happened to me when my kids were little. I'm just saying I can see how it would happen, even to a "prepared" parent.

It happened to me once. Junior couldn't wee in the bottle, water the weeds, use a Pull-Ups. I thought that we were going to end up in an an ER.

A state officer stopped and asked if we needed help. When I explained the problem, he said, "I have three boy, and I understand. You folks have a good day."

I really don't care that the kid was exposed but I do care turning a parking lot into a toilet.
