  • I found that listening to other mothers is a learning experience and that some of it is good advice, some isn't, but its still good to listen with an open mind.

  • Maybe some of them can? Maybe they cant? Who knows why people think what they do? Personally I dont give a damn lol. Just learn to let it go is my best advice.

  • Depends on the parents. I don't think I can raise other peoples kids better than them most of the time....at least not the people I know personally. But stupid people who let their two year old wander the streets alone in traffic....yes. People who take their anger out on their children....yes. people who otherwise abuse, neglect, or otherwise don't treat their children well....yes.

    But other than that....how you choose to parent is up to you. If you ask for advice I might offer it. But if you choose to use time out for your kid where I would spank mine then that is a parenting choice. If you choose to let your kid have cookies everyday where in my house it is a treat then that is your choice. No better or worse. Just personal decision.

  • because they think they are better then everyone anyway. Ignore them and know that you are doing a great job.
