I thought she overreacted, do you?

I take parenting classes with other women. Well this girl brought her 7 month old daughter and my 8 month old son tried to "kiss" her. She got all nasty and said "Antonio, if you try to kiss my daughter again, we'll have serious issues" and she's been kind of nasty to him since. At first I thought she was joking but I can tell she wasn't. He's only 8 months old. He doesn't know any better. Do you think she overreacted?

  • If she really has a legitimage problem with him kissing her daughter, she should politely ask you to try to keep him from doing it and not take it out on your son. But like you said, an 8 mo doesn't know any better and she did overreact.

  • Um, 100% absolutely, positively, she over-reacted! Who acts nasty to ANY 8 month old? A psycho that's who. This could be way off, but maybe because she's in a parenting class she feels compelled to be have like she's in control, sounds to me like she's insecure of her parenting abilities. Hopefully , she'll learn a thing or two from this class....

  • wow... seriously?? treating an 8 month old bad for kissing??? hate to see what that baby girl's going to go through as a teen...

    he was probably all proud of his new trick too... darn mean mommy...

  • Awe I think that is cute. I'd keep my kid away from hers.

    Answer by Trixiebelle2 at 4:48 PM on Feb. 25, 2009

  • I would stay away from her. She's probably a serial killer or something, to take a kiss from a BABY that seriously.
