My children! Hell, even my dog!!! They are all still alive and I don't know how! I mean, I'm such an irresponsible mother! I let my children be children! I let them live and have fun! I just don't understand how they have made it to 6 and 7 1/2 years of age without there having been child locks on everything in my house and me not having my head up their asses 24/7! Somebody please explain this mystery to me? I never once went above and beyond as a mother.... This just doesn't make sense?!!!!

We should investigate this thoroughly!

I have a 8 year old, 7 year old, and 4 year old. Also have raised my sisters 5 year old, 4 year old, and 2 year old. How ever are they are still alive after my "horribly irresponsible" parenting?

The gods must be looking out for you!!! Surely nothing YOU did has kept those children alive and well all this time!

Oh no!! My kid is almost 9 and I had 2 step kids. They've all survived my horrible parenting.

I use real cleaners! Keep them under the sink! No child locks! I let them play outside barefooted! I take medication every day and I leave the bottles on the coffee table!

Is cps gonna come? Will I have to take parenting classes?

Bahahaaaa ! As am I! I'm not sure why I even asked really, I don't truly have the time or energy to look into such matters! Ill just keep doing what I'm doing and hope they make it another few years, seems to be working so far...

Of course not ;)

I think learning by mistake is the best way for a kid to learn. My son always runs down the stairs even after 100 million times of telling him not to. One day he tripped near the bottom and fell down the stairs...he no longer runs. I could have helicoptered and put gates up on the stairs, but when he know the consequences of his actions?
