    The ones that really **** me off are from people who have never had, been around or involved with kids. I'll put thought into (some) things from other parents or people who work in a field with children but people that really have no idea **** me off.
    For example from my 19 year old partier cousin "Don't you think DD should be in her own room by now? And maybe in day care 3 or 4 days a week for social interaction. You dont want her spending to much time with you or she wont function properly in society"
    Might I add, DD was about 1 month old at the time and cousin still lives with her parents.

    DPs mother told him that if his ex took him to court over custody of thier boys and he wasnt giving them enough junk food (maccas and the like, cordial always in the drink bottles, never water) that the boys would complain that dads house was boring and it would look bad for him.

    Also, its ok to let little babies scream cause they need to learn its not all about them.

    A gp also once told me that i couldnt pat my cat when i was pregnant cause it is too dangerous.

    That cheating in long term relationships is ok as long as the other person doesn't know (wtf?)
    Can't believe I'm admitting this but I used Frontline on my own hair for bits and it gave me the worst headache!! I didn't even consider using it on DD but put in straight on myself lol

    Ok you asked for it lol. To give an idea, she is a very traditional European. So here goes......

    Liquor (rakiya) on dummy to get my son to sleep, he was only a month old. Pureed rice in his bottle or on a spoon, again only a few weeks old. In the hospital when she met my son for the first time, she insisted on putting more and more clothes and blankets on him because he was cold, he ended up with a fever and required iv fluids to flush it.

    The worst would have been when I was told to not give him water from birth, no this is too normal, not even ribena in the water, but wait for it, chicken broth.

    Then to top it off, apparently it was ok for them to give him Fanta and chocolate at 6 months of age.

    In case you haven't realized I don't let my son out of my sight when they're around lol

    My grandma told me smacking children with your hand is wrong, it's confusing for the child because hands are for loving... Which is why you hit them with a wooden spoon...
