    POOP AND PUKE. UGH!

  • Francine says:
    Whining, my kids do it all the time

  • Amanda says:
    Not getting all the help I should get

  • Rachel says:
    Feeling like I dont spend enough time with my son

  • Amanda says:
    trying not to care about what anyone else does, and just understand that everyone has their own situation and as long as you do the best for yourself that is all you can do, it's really hard to do that, especially when you get involved with other parents in social situations like playgroups and school...

  • Melissa says:
    Not a peeve but sure wouldn't mind more sleep

  • patrice says:
    being the ONLY PARENT!!!!!

  • Nicole says:
    I can not stand a dirty child, especailly a child with a dirty nose....

  • shauna says:
    Parents who think they have no faults and think they are better , everyone has room for growth and improvemeent !!!!!!

  • Aimee says:
    Everyone trying to tell me how to raise him, feed him, & that type of thing.

  • Lisa says:
    Repeating myself over and over and over

  • Tarsha says:
    WHT I SAY ABOUT AROUND THEM

  • Angela says:
    I work two days a week and recently someone said to me, oh you must have so much free time since you only work two days." That actually shocked me! Obviously this person hasn't got kids, and has no idea!

  • Jessica says:
    When shes fussy and doesnt want to eat!

  • Victoria says:
    sometimes seeing other parenting...I just wonder sometimes...

  • Lory says:
    Seeing other parents, not parent. Not giving guidelines to behave and respect others

  • Jacqui says:

  • Pamela says:
    Society telling us how to parent. Treating kids as adults. And then having adults act as kids. I think society has it backwards. Let kids be kids. But when you are 21 you are an adult whether you like it or not.Act like one.

  • Hilda says:
    ....

  • Melissa says:
    People telling me how I should be raising my kids.

  • Anonymous says:
    The ignorant ppl who stick there nose where it doesn't belong!

  • Sarah says:

  • Carly says:
    annoying comments from other moms who 'think they know better'

  • Natasha says:
    people telling me what to do: aka: unsolicited advice.

  • Diana says:

  • Dominique says:
    People telling me what i should and shouldn't do with them. Advice is one thing, but dont tell me what i should be doing!

  • Mary says:
    giving up

  • melissa says:
    One thing that bothers me is when parents blame their kids for their mistakes or say that they could have done this or that if only they didn't have kids. I believe you can do what you want to do weather you have kids or not,it just depends on how bad you want it.

  • Ashley says:
    people not listening to what i tell them about taking care of my daughter while i cant be around (work)

  • Angie says:
    Somebody else telling you how to raise your children! Don't mind the advice but other than that you can just shut up and mind your own business.

  • Paula says:

    When strangers try to give you parenting advice when it's not needed - that really bugs me.

  • Kat says:
    When other peoples beliefs are forced upon a family that doesn't believe in the same things.

  • Amanda says:
    when you have to tell the kids something 5-6 times before they actually listen to you.

  • Mel says:

  • Alice says:
    Tough love. Sticking to your values and having it hurt relationships. Making hard decisions, the best you can at any given time and having your kids hate you for it until the dust settles or they grow up a bit. Kids stay mad longer than parents.

  • Kaylia says:
    Nothing bothers me, I love being a parent!

  • Michelle says:

    that my daughter calls me shanna (my first name ) more then she calls me mommy, she calls me mommy when she wants something

  • Kelly says:
    when you say no 10 million times and they still do what they're not supposed to do!!!

  • Amelia says:
    Not being able to go to the bathroom by my self.

  • Lisa says:
    I hate to see kids without their hair combed. And in clothes that don't match.

  • Wyona says:

  • Michelle says:
    dirty kids-----soap and water are not expensive

  • Just says:

  • Jennifer says:
    Amelia's right, you can never have any peace and quiet in the bathroom. I always have an audience.

  • crystal says:
    Germs.........i hate going to the doc office and letting my kids play with the toys there while all the other kids are slobbering and snotting and coughing on them.......

  • Cassie says:
    When we go somewhere and I see other kids who are dirty and need their nose wiped, it drives me crazy! I hate it when a parent looks better than their kids! Their kids should always come first, even with their clothing!

  • Ester says:

  • Sandi says:
    when the kids are argueing and I'm not quite sure who started it or who did what or who's lying... but its normal, I rather have them argue with their voices than not have one to use.

    Spoiling the child rotten...completely unnessisary and life damageing to everyone around that child bc he/she will expect it everytime....or letting the child do as they please without learning the rights and wrongs and rewarding children for bad behavor.....your just asking for a life time of crap!

  • Nadine says:
    None really....but I would like a sleep-in after 8am now and then....hehe (i love my sleep!!)

  • Kirsten says:
    School fundraisers - yes, I realize that it helps raise money for school field trips, etc. But, with two kids who each have 3 or 4 fundraisers per school year - it's frustrating to have to buy useless crap 8 times a year and it gets so competitive!

  • Elizabeth says:
    TEMPER TANTRUMS LOL

  • Nicole says:
    Other peoples opinions on how I raise my kids.

  • Cyndi says:
    I can see where the diaper thing is going to get old soon enough, but they don't bother me yet. But otherwise, I'd like it if people didn't question my parenting - everyone parents differently, and just because I'm trying something different, doesn't mean it's wrong. Let me make my own mistakes and celebrate my triumphs!

  • Leslie says:
    It is not always the parents fault their child do the things they do.

  • Gail says:

    Parents that try to shelter their kids from the world, and not letting them explore. Especially when it comes to getting dirty. I can't stand when parents get mad at their children for getting dirty WHILE PLAYIN OUTSIDE! That's what a bath tub and washer are for.

  • Jamie says:

  • Jaimie says:
    Potty training boys is crazy.....

  • Kelly says:
    Fighting and whining..... aghhh drives me crazy! Now I know why my mother pretended to ignore us as kids.

  • Amie says:

  • Brittany says:
    when you are mom...you do it ALL!

  • Jennifer says:
    About me personally being a parent? Nothing. About other parents? Those who feel the need to tell you that you are doing something wrong in raising your child b/c it is not the way they did it. Oh, and those who feel the need to brag about how their kid never did such and such or their kid was quoting Shakespeare by the time he was 2.

    Other people thinking they know whats best for my child. I don't mind opinons or suggestions, but don't tell me "you wouldn't do this or that". We all have different beliefs and values. Our family believes in God, praying, and trying to do the best with what we have.

  • Jennifer says:
    People always wanting to share the "right" way to do this or that as a parent. Everyone has their own style of parenting. If it works for you then it's okay. If I ask for advice is one thing, to give it without advice is annoying! :-)

  • Carly says:
    All the stuff you hear on TV or read in parenting magazines about this or that that your never supposed to do or aren't you just the worst parent ever. Or you have to have this or do that or your not living up to the standards of good parent. As if we need more pressure.

I only leave him with my friends that I trust, but still... I just miss him when I am away from him and the whole time I am away from him I am thinkng about him; wondering if he's ok, if he gets hurt will they be able to console him, etc.
