bad parent?

I have a 3 year old in my daycare that is not held responsibile for his actions....he never gets time outs or any other type of punishment at home. He will throw screaming fits until his parents give in. He's about 4 feet tall and weighs 50 lbs and runs into the other kids.

His parents are ticked because after he'd pooped his pants while playing on the playground (which he does everyday, despite our sending him to the bathroom about every 20-30 min) we expect him to help clean himself up. It's not that we don't help if they need it...but part of moving from the toddlers to preschool is learning to try and do for yourself. He still drinks out of a sippy, can't put on crocs, the list goes on and on. At 3, I think they can get their own clean clothes out and get started on changing. Am I expecting too much?
