Crying It Out In an Apartment (not really a debate)
Did you ever live in an apartment and let your kid(s) CIO?
I'm sitting in my apartment listening to one neighbors 18 month old SCREAM his brains out, for the last 4 hours now. Non stop. I can hear them turning up the TV and I can tell they aren't going in to comfort him, or check on him.
My other neighbors (18 month old is apartment next door, other one is above) are letting their 13 month old son SCREAM his brains out. This is now the fourth day in a row, and it usually goes on until about 4 in the morning. (and now I can hear him kicking the wall and mom threatening to 'beat his ass', which I'm guessing he did since hes now screaming like hes being murdered)
I want to go over to both of them and say listen you can parent how you want, but you need to be aware of your impact on your neighbors... its so rude. I get kids will cry and scream sometimes, but this is not just 'sometimes' anymore.
If you did CIO in an apartmnt, did you think of your neighbors? If you didnt CIO is it because in part because of your neighbors?
What would you do?
I don't really care if you are pro CIO or against, I didn't do it and your children are your business.
