I have always talked normally around my son, I have never used baby talk and( obviously while I do not talk about or explain graphic subjects that have no place in his world) I do in NO uncertain terms let him know whats going on. If I am watching the news and it talks about killing someone we do explain or make understood in a way that he can understand that concept. I never sugar coat anything. I use big words around him, if he doesnt know what they mean he will eventually figure it out in context. My child is not perfect by any means and he is as smart as a whip academically ( which is good because I want him to grow up to be a man that has the beliefs of right and wrong from the olden days. Not what society synonamously attributes with a man now. Most of what I have seen as losers.Mind you I said most not all!
My question is : I have a friend that does not treat her kids like that at all. Everything is sugar coated and you dont dislike anyone and everyone loves everyone and she has just created a total fluff and stuff world for them and while they are nice kids and all I think they act like they have some of the symptoms of schizophrenia. Really I am not saying it to be funny. They are 2 years younger than my son and the boy has speech problems and regularly wets his bed. I think it is all because of this wht do you think. I parent from a realist perspective and she parents from an unreal out of this world perspective. Any comments? What are your thoughts?
