Hi there, I haven't posted in ages but I would really love some honest opinions from as many as possible on the following issue. I would like to see where mainstream society stands on judging this issue. Complete honesty is required please, if you think you will offend that is fine.
The issue is: kids in dirty clothes.
My question is three-part:
1) What do you think of a parent or carer taking a child out in public in obviously dirty clothes:
a) nothing wrong with it b) inappropriate behaviour but basically harmless c) plain bad form d) child abuse e) indifferent
2) If you saw a mother with a child in dirty clothes, would you:
a) immediately assume she could not be bothered changing their clothes
b) think perhaps they were in a rush that day / some extenuating circumstances
c) be indifferent
3) if you answered Question 1 with b), c) or d), would this behaviour affect your attitude toward the carer and decision-making with regard to your own child interacting with their child. If you have any further opinion on this issue, please elaborate.
Many thanks in advance for your time.
