With all the dumb ass questions I see on here some days, I have to wonder where people are getting their "basic" information from? I am not being a jerk about a mom who just may not know better... But under a year old- don't leave your kid in the bath tub- it likely isn't a tantrum- and why would you even think of feeding your kid that?? Where do we get these ideas ladies? Did we do any research at all? Or just think it would come to us automatically? Or do we take advice from our parents who have been oh so reliable themselves? Wow- these questions! Some of them just amaze me.Answer Question

I don't turn anywhere for parenting advice. Most of what I do is based on my own personal research and common sense. I am very surprised by a lot of the questions and ultimately feel sorry for the children involved.

I agree that parenting is a lot of common sense but to be totally honest, I've gone to my mother (mostly lol), girlfriends (with or without children) for advice at times because IMO, having someone "on the outside of the box" can point things out you may not see and help you see them in a different perspective. And because children don't come with handbooks or directions lol and are a learn as you go experience through trial and error (in the sense that we all make mistakes with our children), there may be times when you need to ask for help which to me, there's nothing wrong with. In fact, I think that the parents who DO ASK FOR HELP shouldn't be judged or put down (and I'm not saying that you are with your question) as raising children is no easy task by any means. JMO.
