I'm afraid to vaccinate my baby: Really? You should be more afraid of watching them die a horrible painful death that you could have prevented.

My 1 year old isn't walking yet, how do I make him?: Well you could do the intelligent thing and WAIT he will eventually do it all by himself. BTW, WHY do you want your son to walk before he is ready? Don't you know that statistically late walkers have a higher IQ? Shouldn't you just be enjoying this time of limited mobility before he starts getting into everything? What is WRONG with you????

I hate my body after having a baby: Really? You probably should have thought of that possibility BEFORE you got pregnant. Now stop complaining and DO something about it.

My son has been prescribed asthma medication, are there any alternatives?: Sure, DEATH.

There have been a few others that have just annoyed the hell out of me lately but I can't remember them right now (and that is a GOOD thing, I am cranky enough!). Sigh. I think I am getting bitchier as I get older. . . . .

People really just have to think about their own kid and what motivates them, and what the problems are at the table. Also have reasonable expectations for amounts; why would a toddler eat a huge plate of food? That's not even healthy.

"Why does my baby want my attention so much and is always crying and I can never get anything done?"

Really? Because babies need to be cuddled and have attention and crying is how they communicate best. And you can't get anything done? Welcome to parenthood.

I ALWAYS have to bite my tongue (tie up my fingers?????) when I see the circumcision debates. Sigh. If you won't circumcise your daughter, why would you do it to your son? The reasons (cleanliness, loss of pleasure, more 'attractive' appearance) are exactly the same excuses that are used for female genital mutilation in other countries!!!! Why can't these people just spend ten minutes doing some freaking research first??

Oh man. A mom on my board is complaining about her son...says he's horrible, screaming, kicking, throwing things, out of control. Then goes on to say she doesn't know how she can handle another 15 years with him (this made me do a double take)...he's FOUR! Good lord woman! Get a grip and take some parenting classes! I don't CARE what diagnosis your kid has, he is FOUR! I can't reply to her at all, because that's ALL I have to say!

Okay, so I know this thread is a few months old but it just popped up (you know that little box that comes up with suggested threads). OMG!!!! I am laughing so hard at all of your responses. And to the last couple - my almost 4 y/o will just randomly come into the bathroom to "hang out" with me while I pee. LOL. I can't remember the last time I went to the bathroom by myself. If it isn't him, it's the cat.

[deleted account]

Ahhh my cat does that too! Stupid cat. Lol. I had a go at being a crazy person today and asked my 2 year old, "Why do you always have to be such a baby." (Sarcasm for people who cannot figure that out.) She head-butted me and said "DING!" There you go. That is the answer to all awesomely intelligence-lacking questions. Even your kid thinks you are a boob.

I hear ya Katherine! I don't have a dog, but more often than not both kids either follow me to the bathroom or I will be in there for a minute before at least one of them calls for me asking me where I am.

Mine does the kitchen thing, sits under my feet and pulls things out of the cupboards for me trip over and sits outside the toilet door. I think they just want to see what you're doing and there's nothing wrong with that.

[deleted account]

My 7 month old will follow me everywhere. I can't sit on the computer for even 5 minutes if he is awake ebcause he will follow me and push the tower over. If i get in the kitchen to cook dinner or make lunch he gets between me and the bench and pushes on me. He just wants to be with me . For crying out loud they are only young once so let them be close to you and give them all the love you can because one day they won't be here.

I don't actually know anyone who's 1 year old doesn't follow them all day. LOL. Mine does and it's because they want you to play instead of being on Facebook, vacuuming, folding washing, stacking the dishwasher.

Some people geez. They want things to happen overnight or something. She is still considered a baby at 11 months. Not only that, but probably going through separation anxiety.

It was something like my daughter is 11mo and she will not stop following me. All she does is cry and cry to be picked up, to the point of throwing up. I can't get anything done. She also won't sleep through the night.

I always knew when my kids were about to hit a growth spurt b/c they refused to eat! For about a week, they were tired and not hungry at all, then all of a sudden they were eating me out of house and home and an inch or more taller!

Is it effecting his weight? Checking weekly on an accurate scale is a good way to know. If not, he could simply not be very hungry; milk is quite filling, even if you don't realize it.

I give him like one slice of bread and he just mangles it and breakfast is over or one weetbix and milk. He used to LOVE weetbix and toast for breakfast and since he got to about 11 months it's like he eats nothing and won't let us feed him.

The only kid in this house we really push to eat is our 3 year old healthy (underweight) daughter. She's so blessed hyper she simply will not sit! So we put her back in an infant booster, set her butt at the table by herself so she's no longer entertained, the tv stays off, and it's amazing but her food disappears! It's especially taught her that even when she dumps it on the floor she gets the same amount back, and has to finish it or sits there while we do fun things with the other kids.

I have done that too Tracey. Sometimes I spend an hour trying to get my boys to eat. Then i'm thinking, what the heck, did I really just waste an hour trying to get them to eat? It's crazy.

I know it! And we were about gagging at the thought, because feeding tubes are a bit gross; it's rather like a nose with goobers.

You could always tell them to bring them to the dr and get feeding tubes installed in all their kids. It's such great fun! NOT.

Speaking of, I caught our son laying on the floor, with our daughter trying to blow him up through his feeding tube. Since air will go in like that, I felt bad for the little guy! While we joke the kids are inflatable, they really shouldn't be...

LOL I try to remember the number of notifications I had and then when I sign on next, I subtract the two to figure out how many new alerts I have, then I count back that many from the top of the list and that is where I start from.

HAHAHA yeah Logan would have screamy fits if I took the tv remote away from him at 9 months but I wouldn't really call that a tantrum or him being naughty. Yeah "Why does my 2 week old always want to be held"... maybe because they're used to being inside you!

CoM is always stuffing up for me too!! Now I'm not getting emails again and the notifications aren't going away so I can't tell which are new and which are old.

[deleted account]

I have a 7 month old and he does chuck little tanties where he will scream and grunt but it's because he is frsutrated that he can't do something he is attempting. It's not like he is being a defiant 4 yr old who wont listen.
They are little people who can't communicate what else are they gunna do :(

I WANT to say...
Tie him up.
Take away his legs.
Lock him in.
Bed tent.
Quit trying and let him wear himself out, just put him to bed early.
Transition him to "quiet time" instead of naptime.
Chloroform.

The posts that shit me the most... are the "don't judge" posts. Why'd you write it on th internet, if you only wanted everyone to agree with your opinion and not tell give you criticism?



There was also a thread the other day about people seeing people with their tiny kids in the front seat and someone was like "ooh how dare you judge people for this".... shuuuuut up!
