They should be afraid when you walk into the room

Giving them a pacifier will make them obese because they will get used to soothing themselves by putting things in their mouth.

No joke-- I actually had a cashier tell me this when I was buying pacifiers.

My ex in laws told me that children should be spoon feed until they are 2 years old.

my mother told me that biting my DS1 back for biting would break him of the habbit.(i never did this it seemed so wrong to me)

You should hold them during a tantrum and comfort them so you don't hurt their self esteem.

Giving the child everything he wants without making him work for any of it shows him you care

My mother told us if we put our hand out the car window it would get cut off by the road signs as we drove by.

Or that if we touched the handrail on the escalator it would cut our hand off.

 If you can't be around your child 24/7 for the rest of their life you shouldn't have had them because clearly you are only thinking of yourself.
