An American mother says she's outraged after discovering staff at her son's preschool sent her a rude message by writing on his stomach in green marker. 

Florida woman Heather Chisum says she noticed the note which read "Mom I'm out of diapers - pls read my report" while changing her toddler Milo's nappy after work.

On Tuesday she took to Facebook to seek advice on the ordeal.

"I need opinions. Am I right to be furious about this? Or am I overreacting? I really need your opinions guys, because I'm about to barge in this daycare tomorrow morning and have some words," she wrote. 

Chisum says the childcare staff put daily reports in her children's lunch boxes to let her know if either of them needs more nappies or wipes.

"I'm a single mom with a full-time job and two very young children," she said.

"I guess yesterday they wrote on his report that he needs diapers and I failed to see that."

So instead she was faced with the brutal message across her son's tummy in permanent marker.

"I see several teachers at pick up and drop off. A simple 'Hey Heather, your son needs diapers, maybe you missed the report', would have done the trick," she said. 

She says she's tried to wash the words off her son several times but they are still visible.

Her post has had thousands of reactions.

"Not okay! I would file a report! I cannot even imagine!" one fellow mother wrote. 

"I would sue the daycare that is totally unacceptable!" added another. 

"Unreal. Who does that to a child?" a woman wrote. 

Chisum sarcastically added that "the best part" of the ordeal is that this wasn't the first time the daycare centre left a message in such an unorthodox way. 

"THIS ISN'T THE FIRST TIME. They've done this several months ago too," she finished the post.
