I wouldn't get mad at her look at it from her point of view first she sees your child alone on the street, and now she is seeing her dirty, crying, and being jumped on by a dog. She probably went by slowly a couple times to make sure child wasn't alone this time, and she wasn't hurt.

You don't have a reason to be angry, though. She hasn't done anything wrong. The only one who did something wrong was you. If I were her, I'd probably do drive-by's too. And didn't she talk to you? She said that she thought it was inappropriate for you to let a dog jump all over your crying child and that she didn't want to have to call CPS again.

She doesn't have to be nice :? She almost hit your daughter because you weren't watching her like you should.



Fuck, I'd be rude too if I was her. You have no reason to be mad that she is actually concerned for your child's safety.

Apparently she's the bad guy for finding her child in the street, saving her life, and then being concerned. What a bitch.

Maybe, maybe not. I don't know why you are getting defensive. Honestly it's not a big deal. Perhaps talk to her nicely, and invite her for dinner show her that you are a good Mom

I guess so. The woman should have just left her 2 year old alone in the street for something to happen and not be worried that an innocent child could possibly get killed cause of shit like this. :?

I do know where you all are coming from and thank you for what you all have told me. I can not help but get heated at the time of certain things, yes I know it was my fault and I have made tremendous changes of this situation and many others. Past is the past and that be it

Exactly. This woman owes you NOTHING. YOU, however, owe her EVERYTHING. Could she have came and talked to you first instead of driving around? Yep. But she doesn't owe that to you and personally I think I would have done the exact same thing. Bottom line is, the whole thing wouldn't have happened if you would have supervised properly in the first place. Your fault.



P.S. - You say you learned your lesson and she never goes outside by herself anymore. Great...but hard to believe when you say things like "it was ONLY 200 feet" and other things that make it seem like you're defending your actions. People make mistakes all the time. Idiots defend them.



Also, after the rest of the story came out about why this woman was "stalking" you and you acted like it was no big deal, I really question if a simple "my daughter was dirty, the dog jumped on her" was all that happened. Just sayin...

I really would but she doesn't drive by all the time, another reason why I felt the situation being weird this happened in October and its now may and she all of a sudden is just now doing this.

Couldn't have said it better myself.



How does that woman know for sure she doesn't let her little girl out by herself still? Maybe she kept driving by to make sure the mom was still sitting there with her?

So you would feel better if she drove by your house every day to check on your daughter?



She probably figured during the winter months, your daughter wouldn't be out as much as if it was warm. Or maybe she just happened to drive by today and notice yall outside and decided to make sure you stayed with her. Either way, you don't have a reason to be pissed.

I owe her nothing but a thank you and that's exactly what I said when it happened. I was polite and handled that situation well. But your right people make mistakes and I made a big mistake and I made myself look like a fool with bad parenting skills. But I don't need her checking in on me if she doesn't even know me. I paid my dues dealing with cps and the case got closed due to my changes and responsibility.
