Obvious or Not?
I AM NOT A PERFECT PARENT, NOR WOULD EVER CLAIM TO BE…BUT
Smoking with children in the vehicle is never ok....no matter how far down your window is cracked
Making time for yourself and you and spouse without kids, is a must!
Nothing is too important to miss time with your children
Never let your kids see you do anything that you would not want them to do
I appreciate the stranger offering their opinions on my children, but why would I ask a stranger to help me with MY children?
If there is a baby changing station in the women’s restroom, there should be one in the men’s restroom.
If a restaurant can offer you a high chair, they should also be able to offer you a place to change the baby in the high chair.
Changing a diaper on a restaurant table is a major no no!!
Being family friendly means offering a kids menu, a high chair, and a place to change a baby in either restroom or a family restroom.
Kids who are old enough to walk and talk on their own should not be using a pacifier.
Kids who are old enough to ask for milk, should not still be breast feeding.
Giving your kid everything they want does not make them happy, it just temporarily gets them away from you to create the next distraction.
When you have to pick your child up to remove them from the public environment, and you are mad at said child, take a look at what steps you missed as a parent
Why would parents not have a set bedtime for a baby? (he/she goes to be when they are tired)……and you wonder why they never nap routinely.
Parents of one child who is older than 8 years old should not allow that child to ride in a stroller, especially an umbrella stroller
You did not have kids so you could have more friends, you had kids so you could raise quality people of society to carry on the family name
It is ok and expected to make your kids mad….it means you are doing the right thing and being a parent.
As an adult, your children will never understand your childhood, so don't bother trying to explain
Kids have better listening than they lead on, watch what you say at all times
Forgetting how easy life is as a kid is depressing no matter how often you try to forget
Publicly yelling at your child will never make anything better
Allowing your underage child to have a party in which their friends can drink "supervised" never ends well for anyone involved
Kids have to learn what they like and dislike on their own...yet denial of trying new things frustrates the hell out of us as a parent
How can you expect your child to eat something that you won't eat? "It is good for you"......
Don't make promises to a child......because they will never let you forget
Try feeding a baby without making funny facial expressions
