I went to Starbucks just to wait till my appt time for my depo because I was early. I treated my self to a hot chocolate and a cake pop. I let my son (10months) have a plastic spoon (it's like his favorite toy). He was in my lap and starts stabbing me with it. I understand its a spoon but he was using the end without the scoop and repeatedly stabbing me in the neck. I kept trying to discourage him and redirect him but it wasnt working so I said no firmly took the spoon and put him crying in his stroller. I got things together and a woman asks me what's my name so she knows what to tell child protective services. I laughed and said "clearly you've never had a child". I rarely take my child to sit down places and and he's being especially awful because his first tooth is popping out.
So for telling him no and putting him in his stroller is abuse now? I swear some woman will call CPS if you hold your kid "improperly" in public.
And yes I know he's 10 months but he usually understands the word no. What would you have done continues to let him do what he was doing? Thy how you end up with kids like the parents that got kicked out of Applebee's.
