So Glad the Sons are Bigger Now

found via Google Reader, hat tip to George

Iffen I were not so tired, I might have a few stories of mine own to go along with what he said

No, your kids are not adorable

but there are others who did not agree with me when I ushered a toddler out of the hot and busy church kitchen

or sent a 16 month old away from the table because he was dropping art items on the floor beside his chair

I raised three strong-willed sons, worked daycare for years

children learn early how much they can get away with

and very little gets by ME

~~love and Huggs, Diane

    The link was great. I wanted to say that is what I would do in those situations but I think I hold back because I don’t like confrontations. My mind says don’t say anything until eminent danger appears.

    Thanks for the link; I’m one of those people who tend to get a little ‘loud’ when seeing children not strapped into shopping carts about to do a forward dive ‘headfirst’ onto concrete because said child is standing up in the cart seat. Yes, it’s embarrassing to have to be the one alerting the parent, but the alternative would be a visit to the emergency room and who wants that? I tend to do a very stern glare at misbehaving children (not my own) when I seeing them in public…I realize being a parent isn’t easy but total chaos is not an option, in my opinion.
    (don’t quote me-my kids are far from perfect!)
