No, I don't ask my oldest to parent his siblings, that is not his job.

No, I can't relate.  Each child deserves the same attention and love from me.  I'm not like most people who live on their phones.  My kids are my priority and each scrape, bump, etc gets a kiss and a hug.

Yes I can relate but no I am not on my cell phone when we are at the park.

Yeah, mostly. I had a buttload of nieces and nephews before I had kids and while it's not like having your own, I still knew what to freak out over and what wasn't a big deal. I was definitely more paranoid with my first, but they all kind of got the short end of the stick when it came to an "oh my goodness! Are you ok?!" mommy.

And yeah, I'm totally on my phone at the park and fine with the older kids checking on the younger ones.

No. I spent my teen years parenting my brothers, I knew not to make a big deal about falls with my first.

No. I've never made a big deal over small falls. If there was too much blood, swelling, or bones poking out....then I freak out.

No. I only have 1 child and I never went running if my kid fell down unless he was seriously hurt.
