    Sometimes, but i'm more likely to stand there cussing to myself...

    "Damn I knew I should/shouldn't have done this/gone there!"

    Ugh stupid hindsight!

    A little bit. But my self confidence with motherhood and parenting is pretty low in general.

    Thankfully, DS has only been sick once with a common cold.

    I did not blame myself or anyone else. He hadn't knowingly been exposed to anyone else who was sick so there was no need to blame anyone or anything.

    No, but my husband usually blames me and always wants to know where we've been and who Dane has been mixing with.

    I took DS to hogs breath and have him chicken nuggets and chips and he spewed all night. I felt horribly guilty so I know exactly what you mean.

    If it was a random cold I wouldn't feel bad - we can't keep them locked up forever so they are bound to get things out and about.

    No, kids are meant to catch bugs. It's all part of being a kid. And a human really. Nothing you can do to stop it.

    I do and dont.

    If there are chances of the kids getting sick, like someone coming over (and I know that that person is sick) then yes I would blame myself. If the person just has a cold, I wouldnt blame myself for the kids getting sick, because its just them being around someone with a cold. We could be out at the shops and the kids get sick from someone else that way. Its more of a part of life.

    If the kids eblankets arent on, when its cold at night. Yes I blame myself for them getting sick.
    If I didnt know that there would be a temperature drop at 2am, then no I dont blame myself for them getting sick.

    I guess it just comes down to what you see as important. Kid doesnt have enough clothes on them. Then yes its totally your responsibility. Kid wakes up abd runs out to the cold cold livingroom abd ignores them when you tell them not to, happened to me this morning many times. Lol.
    No its not your fault because your kid (mine is 5) made a decision in her own to run in the cold, and if she gets sick she gets sick.

    My eldest daughter got sick 2 times because I refused to dry her hair with a hair dryer, and she just refused to dryer her own hair with a towel. I let her get sick because she just wouldnt listen to me. I wasnt going to stand there and shout or yell at her and waste my time because a 5 year old was too lazy to dry their own hair.

    By the way, I can see that this isnt the best way to get kids to become independant, this case was more about me stepping up as a mum and not being ignored.

    Its tough when you have get cold with the kids but yeah. I think she will appreciate having an electric hair dryer when she is a little older, more so than if she was lazy the whole time.

    I see it more on a "how nuch tine will I spend doibg things for this child" way because I it woukd be an extra 15minutes that I dont have to spare drying her hair. Thats only because I know that she can do it on her own.
