He Y'all I have another beef, and this erks the hell out of me, but I guess in a way its my own fault for not speaking up to her and saying hey thanks for the opinion but I can parent my own child thanks, I have to learn to speak up,but its more I am disappointed in myself that the fact I don't speak up cause I can't stand confrontation, but I guess I am going to have to learn anyhow, But it just really bugs me cause she acts like she is the mighty expert at this stuff and she does NOT have a child so what the hell does she know? But then again I know someone will likely reply back saying just cause someone doesn't have children doesn't mean they don't have common sense. But when she voices her opinions it makes me feel like a failure or a bad mom, WHICH I am not, my daughter is healthy, happy, and a very polite child most of the time.
just we are still having a struggle with the pooping on the potty, and she is 3 in a half I tried the timer, where I time when she goes to the bathroom like say every 20 mins, and I reward her with a treat or say a stamp on her hand or something, she is still wearing a pull up but only at night, but we are gradually getting off that, but its up to us, not my friend. I was about to tell her that when she has a kid of her own and she comes to potty training and she succeed than she can tell me how to potty train my daughter, but then she would shoot back and say I am never having kids anyways, then its like well then sorry your not authorized to give me advice then on the topic. But I feel she doesn't exactly think I am that great of a mother, cause I am not doing things in her expectations? What should I do? I know there will be people on here that will be very blunt and straight foward and won't sugar coat things, so I am preparing myself for brutal truth.
