If that was the case, she should have just let the child go in private. They were in their car originally.

And if her 3 year old can't hold it long enough to make it inside to the restrooms, then he needs to be in pull-ups. Sorry, but there are plenty of ways to be proactive so that you don't run into this situation.

And yes, I'm sure she used her pregnancy as an excuse to yell at the officer, just as she used her pregnancy as an excuse to run and cry to the local media. She caused herself to be ticketed and can't deal with the consequences of her poor attitude.

Probably not a good idea to go over when invited for dinner.

I just think the making a mountain out of a molehill comes to mind here. Sure the mom was wrong for letting the kid pee out in public. She could of grabbed a empty bottle and had him pee in that kneeling in the back seat. The cop could of let her off with a warning written or verbal. I guarantee you if the parent lets the kid urinate everywhere she will get caught again.
I just think we are becoming a nation of very easily offended types. Hell just reading the posts I see a lot of “offended “ people

Really??? I'd say pretty much half of the ones I encounter require a key, and some are outside "around the corner" by the car wash or whatever.

Nope. I'm just glad I wouldn't get worked up over these things. Life is stressful enough.

We’re talking about a three year old here. Someone who likely just got out of diapers or pull ups fairly recently. I think it’s all going to be ok.

Hope the judge dismisses the ticket.

Granted, this is a three year old who's probably still learning to control his bladder. But what happens when a homeless person has to go and there are NO public bathrooms he can use? I'd bet everybody giving the kid a pass here would scream like banshees if they saw a homeless person pee in public for the same reason.

If they did it in the middle of the parking lot, out in the open yeah, that’d be weird but if they found a private place like a bush or went behind a tree or something then it’s unlikely that anyone would ever know. Adults can generally control their bladders and predict when they have to go so they can plan ahead. Kids who just learned how to pee in the potty can’t always do that.

Wow. There are some adamant people here. I've got 2 grown sons. I was the one giving them food and drink. I kept track of whether they had to sit or stand. (Potty talk)
Parents should not let things get to a critical stage, first off.
Second, she missed a golden (no pun intended...okay maybe so) opportunity to teach him the valuable lesson of using an empty bottle in the car.
I go to a weekly gathering of crazy ultra marathoners. (They tolerate me as an outsider - I do the occasional 5K) There was a kiddo there (yes, a runner kiddo about 8-ish). He went to the edge of the house and whizzed. The guys in the group saw him and said "hey! We can still hear you! He hasn't learned proper etiquette." I never heard of such! Maybe the pregnant mom didn't know proper etiquette either. Maybe she mouthed off at the cop. Maybe the cop had a bad day and decided to be a weenie. "I'll see your weenie and raise you a whole d-ckhead move" BLAM "Here's yer ticket."
