We had a bbq on Canada day. My DD is away with her grandparents right now, but 2 of our friends bought their daughters (one 11, one 10).
After everyone had left DH found a pair of pooey knickers in the rubbish bin in the bathroom.
Should I mention it to the parents? Or should I just leave it? I'm not bothered by it really - kids are kids etc - but I wondered if it might indicate a deeper issue that the parents should know about. or not.
I need advice.
Stuff happens. Maybe they weren't feeling well and had a little accident and didn't know what to do so they tossed their undies? I'm 42 and I've had things happen a time or two in my life that required tossing undies when away from home. I absolutely would not say anything to anyone about it. What would be the point?
Yep, leave it. There are a handful of times that I thought it was just gas and it was more, or that I just didn't make it to the bathroom and had diareah. And that was as an adult! It happens and I would leave it.

Leave it alone. We all have accidents from time to time and the kid was probably mortified and didn't know what to do. If it's an ungoing problem, the parents will realize anyway. If it were just a one time issue, then you'll end up embarrassing both the kid and the parents. I mean, what's the parent supposed to say to you about now.
