Every parent's been there ... your child needs to pee and you can't find a bathroom, panic sets in and you have to make a choice. Fast!

But would you let your child pee in a cup in the middle of a crowded restaurant?

A Russian mother has outraged other diners by doing just that: allowing her son to urinate into a Pepsi cup while standing at their table in a family friendly restaurant.

Instead of walking him to the bathroom, the mother decided to allow the young boy to relieve himself in front of everyone.

Moments earlier, the woman was seen happily drinking out of the cup before deciding to re-purpose it as a urination vessel.

A witness in the food court shared the photo online inciting rage from social media users.

"Even animals do not pee next to the place they eat, what did this woman think of when she decided to hold a cup next to her son's pee," read one comment.

While another person pondered: "I wonder if the little boy wanted to do a number two, would she let him do it at the food court too?"
