This makes me sick to my stomach. People are so freakin clueless. I wonder if that woman even has children?
oh yes she does. she was sharing her lovely parenting advice.
i kid you not, here is the exact quotes:
Em Threats don't work because they are empty. It's hard, she will eventually stop, but you have to ignore the behavior. I wish I could take my own advice, I give empty threats all of the time. Supernanny would tell you to say goodnight the first time, the first time she gets out of bed walk her back to bed and tell her it's time to sleep, then the third and subsequent times do not say anything but place her back in her bed. Try it. It does work but you will find yourself slipping back to old ways after a while and have to do the strategy again Thursday at 11:04pm via mobile · Lik
Em Yes especially if she's doing that. Even if she forces herself to vomit. She's only crying because she knows it works. I know it's hard, Peres a softee so my plan normally fails, but supernanny does work Thursday at 11:08pm via mobile · Like
El I did what Emily said and it worked with my almost 3 year old. We also added a night time routine of brushing teeth, reading a book, rocking for a few minutes in the dark and then to bed. It only took a few days to work, too.
Although I have to say, my counselor...a trained professional, also recommends CIO. Obviously I respect her for far different reasons and won't take her "professional advice" about my kids sleep habits this time. But I said at a session the other day that I am still waiting for Kieran to sleep. And she said "just let him cry." and I thought that if I mentioned he would likely make himself sick she would back off that advice. But she just said "so. Clean it up, hug him, and leave again." yikes!
But since I dont see her for parenting practices, I just ignore that part
oh and another friend on FB, her son has a UTI (he is 2) and her friend posted "now you are regretting not having him circumcised, huh?" and i let her have it and said i did not approve of genital mutilation on a baby as a good fix for preventing UTIs. I have just been really running without a filter lately on FB
I am sure you guys have some good FB gems to share too
This is why I am only on FB for mommy groups and buying stuff, and keep an empty profile with zero friends. I don't need to see stuff like that from people I otherwise enjoy in real life. And given the mix of family & friends I have, and election year politics, parenting issues would surely be only the beginning of the insanity!!
Yeah, that second one woulda prolly gotten a rise out of me too. Thankfully, most of my friends are pretty non-vocal on things like that (on facebook in the least). But I get an occasional "shocker" like that. Where its hard to hold my tongue.
