Subby calling this woman a hero because she hates people is farking ridiculous. Hate is not a heroic stance.

There are people who don't post every god damn thing that happens to their precious baby, and then, there are people whom are astounded by the advances of a human being... their offspring.. that they love unconditionally.

It's amazing. There are people out there telling you, "you don't know, you never have had to go through it." And, they're right.

Cerebral Knievel: Is the article about people who go overboard about posting pics of thier kids and stuff on the facebooks?

because, I'm kinda like.. "this is your child, Not a puppy"

we all worry about our privacy, but these parants are blasting their childerns early, formative years all over the internet like it aint no thang.

there is actually going to be a generation of childern out there, where every bit of thier lives from GESTAITION is going to be a matter of public record


On the bright side, people who have posted those photos along with pics of their house, the kids' schools, and their favorite parks and malls won't have to dig around for photos when all those kids go missing

"Unchilded" makes it seem as though you once had a child and it left you for a better household, though. Or like you had one and then traded it in.

I like the way my one pair of college friends do it. The only time we hear about their kids is when the kids did something genuinely funny, are dressed in costumes for our amusement, very clearly enjoying a toy we or some other friend sent or if they have a legit milestone to celebrate, such as first word, first steps or first defeat of an adult at a video game.

My favorite picture of my little goddaughter is the one of her excitedly beating her Dad at Super MarioKart on the NES/SNES/Sega multi-console I sent for her fourth birthday. The look of triumph on her adorable little face, and the look of 'dafuq?!' on her Dad's, followed by the heartfelt and loving death threat he sent me, of such things are family-friendships truly made.

I respect my childrens' privacy, so I don't post their photos on my Facebook at all.  If THEY choose to do it when they're old enough, that's their decision.  I also don't post about them...again, if they want the world to know about something they've done or thought or accomplished, that's their decision.

What concerns me are the parents who post about their 'disabled' child and his/her 'behavior problems'.  I see a lot of parents biatching about things their young children have done...out of frustration and a need to blow off steam I guess.  I can't help but want to be a fly on the wall when that kid gets to be an adult and goes back through to read all of these embarrassing posts from their parents.

One of my friends in particular spent the first 5 years of her son's life locking him in a room by himself while she and her husband played video games for hours on end.  They never socialized this kid and wonder why he's now diagnosed with 'autism' and has very little ability to control himself when he gets angry.  Her friends list is inundated with daily posts about how badly he behaves and how terrible her life is because of him.

Not to mention the almost daily biatchfest about how lazy her husband is.

I could unfriend them but, man, I love me some trainwrecks.

Mitch Taylor's Bro: Well, have kids, raise 'em right and they'll have a huge advantage over their coddled peers. That ship has sailed for me, so all I can do is hope that other people will do a good job of raising their kids to keep humanity going.


The problem come in when the state meddles with how children are raised. Any child that exerts any sign of brightness or advanced placement is branded as "hyper-active". You either drug them hard with ADHD medication, or the school reports you to CPS for neglect. You either comply, or they take your kids away and demonize you for doing the right thing.

I used to think that I wanted kids someday, but I don't think it's worth having the state breath down my neck for 18 years.

You get the idea. Between the childless people posting pictures of their cats or dogs sitting and looking out windows and people with kids posting child updates every hour, it quickly gets over the top.

I understand posting something about a big occasion, like a birthday, first steps, or they're worried about asking friends for advice on XY or Z - but I've had enough of the doting parents and their the hourly updates on today's walk in a park with Jr.

See, that's the problem with "people like you."

"People like you" don't have to have children. "People like you" are simpletons who, for whatever reason regarding whatever subject, take a legitimate criticism that's made somewhat in jest, and you turn it into a grandiose, PERSONALIZED issue.

Hopefully, your children don't adopt the same selfish, pitiful traits that have ingrained themselves into your personality.

It's not the people who are enamored with their children that's the problem.
