I'm not saying all soon to be mommys so don't get too hot! I just see it a lot around here. When I was pregnant with my first I didn't know my a$$ from a hole in the ground! I wouldn't have the gall to contradict other peoples feelings and opinions. I mean, it's good to have some things set before you become a parent, but do we really need to judge others. You may be in their shoes one day.Answer Question

I know what you mean. I think they are just scared though and are trying to cover that fact up by pretending to know it all. In reality it would be much better for them to shut up and listen to what others have to say. They don't have to use all the advice they hear, but they would do well to listen politely. Plus younger people always think they know more. When I was 25 and pregnant for the first time I thought I knew a lot. I soon found out that I didn't know jack.

"Daycare and babysitting is way different than having your own children...you'll see. It's deeper, and more complex than someone elses child. "
Amen to that! But everyone needs to learn on their own that they don't know it all.

No, you don't need to be a mom to know about kids, but when someone who has been through pregnancy and childbirth before tries to give you advice you should be polite and listen instead of challenging them. I always listened to advice I was given even though I knew some of it I would never use. I also never, ever thought I had a right to tell someone how to raise their kids. I still don't think I have that right.
