question # 14

Brought to you by Vanessa

What do you see other parents doing with their kids that drives you nutso and you swear you would NEVER do?

I have now been a Mom long enough that I actually have learned you should never say "I will never do that!" Because you just might end up doing it. LOL. I think what drives me nutso is when people who have never been a Mom or a Dad give advice. What I feel like saying is "just you wait until you have your own!" Parenting is not easy, there is no manual, and all you can do is your best!

Cute picture.

Honestly, I can't stand when people dismiss my comments however, just because I haven't been a parent.

My SIL is pregnant with a girl, they have 2 boys, and they are thinking of some crazy name. When I told him they were crazy, he used that line on me. So, because I don't have kids I can't have an opinion about a name that makes your child sound ignorant?

I think that an opinion on a name is different than parenting advice. You don't have to be a parent to know which names are crazy.
I had someone recently tell me to wait until my kids are teenagers, then I'll really know what it's like to be a parent. I have 5 kids and just because they are still under age 8, I don't really know what being a parent is?

I'm not big on advice from others... I don't intend to give it, either. If I do, ignore me :).

I used to think that all the time before I had kids. "I'll never do that." but like you said after it's a whole different ball game. I think the same thing though in each stage of their life. Haha.

I said I would never bribe my kids. It lasted 10 years. Now I would offer them my liver to clean their room. LOL
