What things did your parents say/do growing up that you hated as a kid that you would NEVER do to your kids? Lets get creative here and NOT write about spanking. Thanks
My parents let me be fearful of grass when I was a baby. I naturally didn't take to it well and my mom thought it was the best thing ever because I didn't need a leash, cage or her attention when at a park because I wouldn't leave the blanket. She told me when I had my kid not to teach it to like grass. I think this is sad.
I was also scared of vacuums around age 2-3 and my parents couldn't keep me in my room at night so they plugged in the vacuum at the end of the hallway and whenever I would sneak out, they would plug in the vacuum while they watched TV. I also think this is sad and would never do this to my kid.
