Ok, you guys have been giving great responses the the questions.
Some of you have been slacking. You have to answer the question. No judgement will be passed....ok maybe a little.
Ok here goes:
If you could give anonymous advice to one set of parents you know about how they are raising thier kids, who would it be and what would you tell them?
Don't be afraid. We all have different opinions and it's ok. It's not like I'm going to TELL them what you said.
So for me it would be my best friend and her fiance. I love her with all my heart but they don't speak to their kids in the best way.
While on the phone with her the other day I heard her fiance yell "Get you ass back in the fucking tub!" I gasped.
And then I was silent.
She was all like "What?" And I said "Why is he talking to him like that, he's 2!"
And she said something about how many times he had gotten out of the tub and that he doesn't really understand what they are saying.
I call bullshit.
I have yelled at my kids before. I admit it. But I have never, ever, spoken to them this way before.
I would give them both advice on talking to each other and the children the way they want them to talk to others. Friends, family, everyone.
I haven't given her the advice because she over-reacts but it has been eating at me. I'll tell her one day.
Just not now.
Ok, your turn. Let's see what you got.
