I don't understand moms who...

Look at breastfeeding as something sexual (you're perverted if you do).


Refuse to discipline their child(ren). You don't have to spank, you don't have to use time outs but children need consequences for their actions. How else will they learn how to become functioning members of society if they know no boundaries?


Teach their child to be racist/hateful/bigoted/a bully. You are supposed to be guiding your child to lead a positive and productive life. Teaching your child hate rather than acceptance is a complete parenting fail. 


Find it "cute" when their young child dresses and dances provocatively. Your reaction to what they do now is going to sculpt what they find acceptable in the future. You can't say "that's so cute" when you see them dressed in booty shorts and a tube top (are those still a  thing?) while twerking at 8 years old then expect them to understand that they can't do that at 14. If you allow your child to be sexualized from a young age then don't expect that to change when they are old enough to have the urge to have sex.


Moms who buy the wardrobes described above.


Are there any things you want to add? 


Oh, and if the post offends you you should really dig deep and figure out why. These things should be common sense. Do you have to breastfeed? Absolutely not but looking at the act of supplying a baby with nutrients as something sexual is wrong. Not disciplining your child, teaching them to be sexual and hateful...those are all common sense "do not do's".

I don't understand moms who feel the need to let their toddlers nurse honestly.

 Are dependent on their children...the whole need-to-be-needed thing.  If your self-worth needs a boost, raise self-reliant kids who DON'T need your help with every little thing all day long.

Well, you kind of have made yourself look wrong. Sexualized breastfeeding is wrong...they're perverted. But you're not perverted looking at a kid in dance class doing something taboo as,sexual?
Just hypocritical IMO. I'm not against shorter shorts or any dancing. It's expression. You really are a bit confused. .

Helicopter parents
Parents who think every waking moment in their children's lives should be educational and stimulating.
Parents who never go out without their kids so they reject every adult only invite

 Don't have ANYONE to watch their kids.  Folks have cell phones and credit cards and fire extinguishers and spare tires and pepper spray and a thousand other things in case of emergencies.  But you don't have a plan for what to do with your kids should something come up?  Puh-lease~!

It's wrong to allow your child to be sexualized and then ask "where did I go wrong" when your child is sexually active at 14. Dance is indeed a form of expression but there should be boundaries. 2 8 year olds humping eachother is not cute.


Also I'm not sure where dance class came in but thanks for your input anyway.
