    This is very sad.This four year old boy looks destined to be going to school still in nappies. This is becoming a major problem for schools with teachers being expected to toilet-train four and five year old children because the parents didn't do so.

    I suggest you not only refuse to babysit, but have a word with your son about his choice of girlfriend. Is your son really so desperate that the only woman he can find is a single mother? Why does he want to be stuck with helping bring up some other guy's kid?

      Yours is an uncommon situation, you certainly tried. But there are many parents who aren't trying, such as the one in this question, and who leave it to the schools to sort out.

    If you want to babysit, do so. If not, you say no. As a parent I would assume you do know how to change a diaper, so that should not be a factor in the decision.

    I would not. A 4 year old should bevpotty trained. He's probably a spoiled brat.

      Poor little boy. Not his fault his parents can’t be bothered to potty train him. He’s only been on the earth 4 years. I don’t think it’s HIS fault!

    Depends. Do you have nice furniture? Plastic covers?

      He has a 2 month baby with her and she wants to go back to work because she's tired of taking care of 2 kids. I just don't want to mess with the poppy of a 4 year old that does not want to talk or listen to any thing.I could not even try to potty train him,because he doesn't listen to anyone.

    I wouldn't. I made that clear to all 7 of my kids, grandpa only babysit kids who go potty by themselves.
