No, sorry I don't find your kids cute.

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

Call me a jerk, whatever.  I do not find other people's kids cute.  I do not want them touching me, hugging me, offering their nasty goober toys to me.  If they wave or say hi, I was give a quick smile and mutter hi back and then look the other way avoiding eye contact with my ear buds in or fiddle on my phone.

Please do not encourage your kids to talk to strangers and carry on all cutesy wootesy.  Encourage them to be friendly and then respect boundaries.  Encourage them to understand the difference between stranger and friend.

Keep your sticky, germ covered chatterboxes to yourselves in public please.  I willingly bore one rugrat.  I did not choose to deal with the ones you brought into this world.

Actually, you're the one with the comprehension issues, I read the OP 5 times, to make sure I didn't miss it, and nowhere does it say you've got a kid.  It says "I don't find other people's kids cute".  "

It actually says I have a kid in the post...  Nice comprehension skills.

Quoting TCain0001:

Now for the main question:

If you don't like kids (and from the sound of this post, you don't have any--if you do, poor kids! ), then why the hell are you on CafeMOM?  Pretty much all of us have kids or are TTC.

ok, I'm not a jerk either.  *shrug*

Quoting Anonymous: Derp derp.

Gee. I must be such a terrible parent.
Well me and her father chit chat with the public. We are friendly people. She knows not to wonder off with anyone but her family. So I'm not worried about it.
In fact. My kid is so cute I am afraid someone might take her! So I am especially cautious about strangers. But that doesn't mean we have to be jerks to everyone we don't know.

I don't allow my son to engage in conversations with strangers.  Don't you know you aren't supposed to talk to strangers?  I let him say hi or wave, and then tell him that's enough if he tries to talk their ear off.  It's called parenting.

Quoting Anonymous: So what you are saying is your kid is not cute and easy to talk to?

Lol! I'M KIDDING!!!!!...kinda.



My kid engages in conversation with a lot of people. They seem to really like talking to her. Of course she's stinkin adorable. So I don't blame them. But people are constantly talking to her, giving her things, carrying on conversations. So apparently I am not the only one who thinks she's adorable. And I really do try to get her to leave people alone. They actually INSIST that its ok and "she's fine".



It actually causes issues sometimes. Sometimes everyone wants to talk to her and I am trying to get her to listen.

I wish people would stop giving my kid stuff and gushing over how cute and sweet she is.



Ok. I don't.

already well aware :)

Quoting lady-J-Rock: OK just making sure you knew that.

Quoting Anonymous:

ok..  I am sure he's not to other people.  That's sorta the whole point einstein.

Quoting lady-J-Rock: Yeah well your kid isn't as cute as you think.

I love kids. Especially toddlers.

It's usually their parents I can't stand.

lol okay because I have NEVER known what to do. Like, I smile but I feel like a creeper lol so I try to ignore their stare.

Quoting Alona3milanya: Say hi or wave. Most of the time they look away. Unless you encounter a chatterbox kid with chatterbox mom... Then it's just your luck. :)



Quoting LaDulceVida: Lol it is awkward when kids stare at you in public. I feel so weird, like what should I do haha

I usually have it the other way, people trying to carry on conversations with them.

She clearly states she has one right at the bottom if her post.
You don't have to like kids to be on CM. There isn't some paper you have to sign to join stating you like kids.
