so... my mother-in-law says that i should be checked... this is the reason: my daughter (2 1/2 y old) had like 5 minutes of crying and yelling, after we came home this afternoon. she was fine in the car, perhaps a little too quiet... and then out of the blue she started... i wasn't able to calm her down (not even trying to breast-feed her, something that always works), nor was her father or anybody else in the family ( i live with my in-laws...) when she finally calmed down my mother-in-law told me that the only reason for that "burst of will" was that i didn't gave her the tit on the way home (something that i no longer do, and the hole trip was not longer than 10 minutes, and the girl didn't even asked for... ). So i got a bit angry and told her i am not going to give my child what she wants whenever she wants just to keep her calm, and that i'm not my child's slave... (the talk also based upon an older topic about doing and not doing things for / with the children whenever they feel like doing it...) and she said that i should ask a doctor about my opinions, because that's why we bring the children to the world, to be always there...bla bla bla. I said i didn't questioned that but not all the things have to go as a child wishes...the talk was pretty much pointless because i don't change my ideas, nor does she...
but that was my question: am i out of my mind for thinking as i do?
