  • They shouldn't but they do...my 2 year old does it when he can't get his way and throws one of those temper tantrums.

  • Why not? It can't hurt them. I've seen it happen. Hell, I can make myself puke from crying if I really wanted do. It would do nothing for me.

  • Why can't they? It's not harmful. They are just so upset and can't calm down that they vomit. Not a big deal. It's not like they do it on purpose, it happens.

  • Can they? Yes. Should they? No. If your kid is so hysterical that they're crying their eyes out and puking, obviously SOMETHING is wrong. Take a parenting class.

  • It happens. I would have asthma attacks when I was little and panic. When you panic at that age, you cry. When you start, you can't stop. Not enough air + uncontrollable crying = puke!

    Most kids just cry when they're upset...some take it to an extreme and I don't think it's fair to assume it's bad parenting. Stop judging.

  • Actually I wasn't judging so I'm sorry for saying "take a parenting class." I was angry about diamondmamma's response to another "puking post" where she threatens her kids by telling them if they puke she'll make them eat it.

  • No, I don't think it is okay for a child to puke just cause they are upset!!!
