Think about why you assumed the author was female. Then feel bad about yourself.

Right there in the header: "drolly written by a mother ".


Also in the Fark headline: "a mom posts a list".

Mercutio74: We have plenty of ways to make our kids behave without thrashing them or inducing some kind of cruelty... if your kid is misbehaving it's probably because you don't follow through on your correction of their behaviour and they know you're full of shiat.


Rule Number 1 of Children: If people consistently complain about your child's behavior, and you don't see the problem, either you're a jerk yourself, or your child is like every other child and learned how to manipulate you long before they can pronounce the word "manipulation".

I have a theory that childless people who complain about other people's kids evolve into parents who are offended at childless people's complaints about their children.

Should we take away something? Because she's three, does she really have anything of value?

To her, yes.  This use to work fantastic on my daughter at that age.

Me:  You better stop what you're doing or I'm going to put one of your toys in time out.
Kid:  What are you gonna take?
Me:  What do you think I'm gonna take?

Mugato: I've been out to dinner with my niece, who's a baby and her mother and the kid is quiet as a mouse the whole time. She's not deaf or a special needs kid or anything, she's just well behaved. And if she did act up my sister would be mortified and get her out, not act like an entitled biatch about it.


Girls seem to be much more well-behaved than boys, for some reason.

Lady Beryl Ersatz-Wendigo: If I go to Applebee's or The Cracker Barrel and there's some kid screaming his head off two tables over then I shrug and accept it.  You expect to see that kind of thing in a family restaurant.  But if I'm at a nicer resteraunt then I get real annoyed, real quick with screaming toddlers.


That is why I take my kids to paper napkin restaurants. Cloth napkin is for us sans children. I hit the Mexican restaurant and the precious 2 yr old is usually out of her seat midway through the meal. (this is why she is strapped down at home...) but she throws a fit if we try the "highchair" with the strap. You want to see a fit? I don't want to. So IF I make the choice to go out (which isn't that often) I try to keep her occupied with something at the table. It only works for so long, and I refuse to let her be electronically entertained. The 6 year old does that.

And believe me, I would LOVE to beat her ass... but I am trying hard not to do that. I would much rather correct her verbally. And I would love to have her calmly sit and eat. So if I starve her for half the day, she sits and eats...
 
2013-04-09 09:47:01 AM  

Mercutio74: Full disclosure, I'm a parent of a 4 yr old girl.

The article makes some good points, but number 9 is bullshiat.  Whenever my precious snowflake is doing something that isn't very precious and is annoying/hurting/generally shiat disturbing others and she doesn't respond to my chairbourne correction, I get up and deal with her....  usually by crouching down in front of her, telling her I want to talk to her, explaining why what she's doing isn't acceptable and threatening her with a time out if she continues.  If that doesn't take care of it, then I follow through with the time out unless she behaves.

Why do I do this?  Because I want my chair-based words of correction to farking mean something.  My sister in law shrieks at her children and they don't give a fark because they know it doesn't mean anything.  On the other hand, the 9 times out of 10 when I calmly tell her to stop doing something stupid and other parents tell me how well behaved she is, it's not because she's awesome (which she is, I have to be honest) it's because she knows that there are consistent and knowable consequences to misbehaving and it's more fun to find something else to get into.

We have plenty of ways to make our kids behave without thrashing them or inducing some kind of cruelty...  if your kid is misbehaving it's probably because you don't follow through on your correction of their behaviour and they know you're full of shiat.


First off, this is not sarcasm ... Using fear as a tactic to keep kids in line is absolutely a great way to get them to pull it together in public. I use that card with my 9 year old a few times a month. A very sharp glare and pointed finger is all it takes for him to straighten up, and it doesn't cause a scene. He knows what's coming next. It is that fear that makes him straighten up. It was that fear that kept ME in line as a kid. It works, and it's more humane than constant beatings. (my father and I have a great relationship these days. it did no harm). As you said, follow through is the key. You can't verbally get a kid in line unless they know you WILL take it a step further if they don't. Otherwise, they'll ignore you. The whole thing is really common sense and I don't see how so many parents miss the "follow through" part.

I'm lucky enough to have married a person who is really good with kids.  I was a complete idiot and needed on-the-job training (work in progress).  Here's my pro-tips to eating out with kids.  We currently have a 6-year old and twin 22-month olds.  Hence, I'm qualified to comment.

1.) Choose a family friendly restaurant.  Seems obvious, right?  Seen some spectacular "FAIL" with this one at "nicer " restaurants.
2.) Kids are easily bored.  This is easily fixed.  Bring a small bag filled with coloring books, iPad, Kindle, whatever that will keep kids busy for the two important times during a meal when they cause trouble - waiting for the food and after they eat but mom and dad aren't done.
3.) Order an appetizer for the kids.  Maybe you make up for this by having them split their meals, but it's worth it.  I'm not saying you should overfeed them.  In fact, it's hard to over feed a kid who's routinely eating healthy stuff.

Mandatory CSB - once we were out at our local family bar and pub.  We were nearly done when a family walked in and sat down next to us.  Their kids were hellions and they kept getting yelled at.  My wife glanced over at their mom and said "here, you can have these, we are done with them" and gave her a couple of our coloring books and a small box of crayons.

Hellion children immediately changed into normal quiet kids - because they had something to do.

With very rare exceptions for psychosis, etc there's no such thing as bad kids.  There are just kids who are not given direction and activities.
 
2013-04-09 09:48:01 AM  
As a parent, I agree that there are a lot of bad parents in the world, but a lot of the ones people complain about, do the things they do because it is what works. You can go into parenting with a basic plan on how to handle feeding, clothing, and disciplining a child, but raising a child is similar to combat in the sense that, once engaged, all planning goes out the window. You simply have to do what works, even if the people around are annoyed or disapprove.

Secondly, regarding pictures on Facebook: If you don't want to see them, you don't have to be friends with us or view our photo galleries. We put those pictures there for the people who do want to see them e.g. grandparents, aunts, cousins and other relatives who live out of state and care about our children. Non-breeders are not the reason we put pictures up. We sincerely apologize that our contribution to your newsfeed has failed to entertain you in a way that affirms your life-choices.

Mommy blogger, your arguments basically break down to:  "Narcissists who post food & pet pictures have no leg to stand on complaining about my mommy-blogging" and "and I have no sympathy for the suffering my children put you through, they put ME through worse."

The mommy blogger happens to be right about one thing: yeah, narcissists shouldn't complain that other narcissists are self-aggrandizing narcissists.  At the same time, I thank the high heavens that facebook allows me to filter out status updates from select individuals.  I have no interest, whatsoever, in your experience as a parent.

She's wrong, dead wrong, about the whole "my suffering is worse than yours so stfu" argument.  You shouldn't be foisting your child upon society if what it causes is misery.

That's the problem right there. Hell no you shouldn't expect to see it. The parent should leave with the child if the child can't handle eating there. "But I paid for this farking grilled cheese..." Tough shiat. Teaching your child to behave in public should be worth more than a lousy grilled cheese sandwich.

There is a distinction from kids making noise, running around, jumping on furniture, etc (things kids do), and a kid having a full on melt down.  If I am at a family place, I accept that kids will run around, and sometimes (gasp) even interact with me uninvited.  But I would still consider it bad manners and bad parenting if your kid is going full on fukishima and you just ignore it.

No. We "Like" your post like the good goddamn friends we are because if it makes you happy, it makes us happy, even if that worthless damn pet of yours will never be able to pay for your hospice care. "

Funny because it is true.

Fortunately I can pay for my own hospice/nursing home care....also, do parents really have kids just so they can have someone to take care of them when they get old? What if your kids have children of their own? Pretty selfish attitude...

bluenote13: This whole article smacks of a woman who had kids too early and is pissed off that her friends got to enjoy their 20's while she was pregnant and could not. One of the things I have noticed with my friends is that the ones who got married younger and had kids right away after getting married are the ones like this woman, who complain about the single friends, or childless couples. While two friends who got married in their early 30's and waited a couple years to have kids were able to adjust much faster because they were established in their lives and careers.


The whole article is based on the premise that any of her behavior is reasonable because it's necessary.  She's completely overlooking the option that a lot of the people who are judging her are actually excellent with kids, have kids of their own or regularly provide childcare to close relatives, and are judging her for being that overwhelmed and overworked by the mess and noise her children create because she's actually doing things that are known to be ineffective.

I'll grant her that family restaurants are family restaurants.  However, there's a difference between a happy, but piercingly loud child, like my nephew occasionally is, and a surly angry bored child determined to be the center of attention and used to manipulating adults through volume, because they know they'll be bribed for compliance and never actually punished if they make a big enough scene.
 
2013-04-09 09:52:10 AM  
I never understood the general biatching about other people having the *gall* to post or talk about things that you don't find interesting.
Sure, if they trap you with an extended conversation about their own interests, they're a dick.  But that's completely unrelated to what the interest is.

And if they're posting it online... why not just ignore it?  How hard is that?

Ebenator: What I can't stand are the goddam parents who expect everyone to treat their children as if they're the center of the universe.


This is complicated. The simplest way to explain it would be that human instincts make us severely defensive of our children. We secretly despise when other adults, even new spouses (that aren't the biological parent), scold or disrespect our kids if it's not 110% warranted. That's my turf, and I'll handle it. Which is why most homes with a step-parent have obvious favoritism. The biological offspring are always better treated by the true parent. You can't banish it, though you can pretend to fight it. It's nature. And deniers are full of shiat.

Childless person here.  So happy so see what wasn't on that list was my biggest problem with parents: "Can't come to work, kid problems."  Sucks the most when you are in a job where you can't leave until the next person shows up to relieve you and they call in because of their kid.  Happened to me a couple times when I worked security.  There had to be a minimum of one person on the weekends and my weekend relief was real bad with calling in because of her kids.  Spent many Saturdays working 20 hours, off for four, and back for hopefully just 12 hours.  Sorry parents, single or not, the moment your kids needs (illness, closed day cares, whatever) bleed over into your work and force your coworkers to do extra to meet your deadlines or cause us to work more hours we get to speak up.

#2 strikes really close to home with me.

For one thing, I don't go to "family restaurants" I go to nice restaurants and pubs. But I still see your bratty little kid making a goddamned mess of everything and screaming and running around. I choose to go to the places I go specifically so I don't have to deal with this kind of shiat.

As for #2a:

I spent many years as an executive chef at a high-end gastro pub. The only reason I offered a children's menu was because we'd invariably have someone new to the place think that because it was Irish, it was going to be like "Slappy McShenanigans" with all types of crap on the walls and the same tired "family restaurant" food that the chains serve. Sure, there was a menu posted in the goblin box by the front door listing the various items like our huntsman's mixed grille with elk chops, quail, and wild boar sausage, but when you're dealing with your screaming brat that doesn't want to sit in their stroller anymore, you can hardly be blamed for not reading the farking menu before coming in. My kids meals were NICE. Grilled 6oz NY strip or grilled chicken breast with mushroom demi, sauteed green beans, and macaroni and cheese or champ potatoes and they sold for $10. I kept a grilled cheese on there for $6 for the misguided wanderers. The reason I had my grilled cheese at $6? Because I didn't want your farking brats in my restaurant, screaming and raising hell, wasting my saute cook's time, making food for you because you couldn't be bothered to read the farking menu or look around before coming in and taking up the seats that I could be selling $30 filets and elk chops to.

There are a couple of gems in that woman's diatribe, but I've found that 'older' parents (people who waited into their 30's for whatever reason) seem to be able to handle the stress of child rearing better. My wife and I had our son when I was 34. Sure, I miss going out with the guys on occasion, but it's not a burning need for me to party until 3am anymore.

Our childless friends are usually in their thirties and have an understanding of our lives work. We get together, dinner nights and such, usually after the boy is in bed, or we take turns going out to social events. It's doable.

If your kid is not a spoiled turd and is throwing a tantrum in the middle of Walmart, it's probably because YOU  dragged a kid who was tired and cranky or not feeling well and probably missed his nap into Walmart.

I'll buy that.  Every kid is different, you just need to know what they require to let them know when they've exceeded their acceptable boundaries.

I also was whupped when I was a kid, and turned out ok, and have a good relationship with my parents.... but I don't think they needed to go to that level to get me to comply when I was a kid.  But hey, they were dealing with 30 year old pedagogy so who am I to judge.  I like to think I'm more enlightened... but maybe I'm just a sacntimonious douche bag.  That's a whole other thread though.  :D

On a bad day - that;s about par for the course with a 2 year old. That's the age when they can ask you for things, and you can tell them things, and they are learning what the word "no" means. As in - does no mean no or can I change that by crying.

It gets better around 3 1/2 because then they understand when you really mean it, and also you can threaten and bribe them and they will understand it.

It's perfectly normal for that age to experiment with emotional and social response to stimuli. A child that age is about as smart as a Jack Russell terrier, but the key is that he is getting smarter by the day. There's a very wide range of intellectual and emotional response we have to learn to produce that we think of as unconscious reactions, but are really very high-order learned behavior. Some kids default to crying, some to hitting, some to laughing or screaming, some to other types of reactions. For all we know he's crying in happiness .He'll be out of this stage in another 6 months as his repertoire and range of response and social understanding grows.  It's really, really important to remember that, especially with small children, that you are not dealing with a miniature adult. You are dealing with a very complex, very fast-changing human brian that is not filled with the baggage we pack along as adults, and children do not at all see the world as we do.

Also, bear in mind that you're seeing a few minutes, at most, out of 14 hours in a day, which I bet are far more normal than this blog link would suggest. It's bathetic and droll, but please don't read too much into it- the page of photos was created for artistic effect, I'm sure its not representative of the child's normal life.

PanicMan: I refuse to accept the term  "non-breeder" in any way, shape, or form.


Funny. "Breeder" was originally a word gays coined as a derogatory term for heterosexuals. Or, at least , the more vocal ones, for whom being gay was all about promiscuity and rejection of "family values". Then we saw a profound change in the landscape, whereby homosexuality was increasingly accepted. Suddenly, being gay had to become more mainstream, and the Latex Nuns on Rollerskates gave way to committed gay couples. The ones who faced a struggled to redefine homosexuality as something different from the hedonistic lifestyle being gay was associated with, but as a different take on lifelong commitment and raising a family. The term "Breeder" became a liability because it harkened back to the earlier mindset.

As a parent and someone who's wife has worked in daycares and reading programs for precshool-middle school aged kids, this woman is the worst kind of parent.

She feels that because she has popped out a kid she has the right to talk down to anyone who has not had a kid.

My kids were always well behaved when we went out to eat or we left. After we left eating out the second time both my kids got what respect to others were. We clean up after ourselves when we leave tables and tip well because we know that kids are messy.

This woman is just straight up bitter.

Doesn't anyone else find it funny she is using a term that the homosexual culture uses as a derogatory term for straight people, breeders, non-breeders. Just using this term shows he complete and utter disregard for those that have no kids. She is just self-righteous because she had a kid.

namegoeshere: Lady Beryl Ersatz-Wendigo: If I go to Applebee's or The Cracker Barrel and there's some kid screaming his head off two tables over then I shrug and accept it.   You expect to see that kind of thing in a family restaurant.  But if I'm at a nicer resteraunt then I get real annoyed, real quick with screaming toddlers.

That's the problem right there. Hell no you shouldn't expect to see it. The parent should leave with the child if the child can't handle eating there. "But I paid for this farking grilled cheese..." Tough shiat. Teaching your child to behave in public should be worth more than a lousy grilled cheese sandwich.

I should say, the one exception to this is Chuck E Cheese. Fark that place. Let 'em scream.

I prefer to call myself a "stump".

jigger: This tumblr has been making the rounds. Is this kid typical or is he just a little biatch? I vote little biatch. Honestly, I don't think I could handle this little fark without choking him out.

The answer is simple. Put him in a corner on a stool and let him cry. If he's still crying when he stands up, swat him and put him back on the stool. If he turns around and he's still crying, swat him and turn him to the corner. It won't take him long to learn. My oldest Grandson started crying once because I wasn't fixing his peanut butter sandwich quickly enough. One loud "bark" from Grandpa stopped that. He never tried it a second time.

She makes a point about restaurants. We only ever frequent family restaurants with our little one, and only ever before 6pm. If you really have to broadcast your panty-twistedness over not being able to hear yourself think at 5:00pm on a Saturday at Chili's, then friend, you've got much bigger problems than your precious little snowflake eardrums.

Articles like this all read the same.  They're taking a pisspoor crack at channelling the thin ghosts of 1970's Erma Bombeck paperbacks.

WOW people compalin about the dumbest shiat.

Parents Post Too Many Photos of Their Children on Their Facebook Walls  - unsubscribe to their feed then idiot.  Trust me, you wont miss anything.

Control Your Children in Restaurants - Annoying shiat is happening around you everyday, learn to block out distractions.  What, you're still listening to your S/Os nagging?

I Get Irritated When Parents Blabber on about Being So Busy - If someone is "blabbering on" about shiat you're not interested in, excuse yourself from the conversation.  Take a fake phone call, claim you forgot to pick up your brother from psychotherapy, whatever it takes.

I Don't Like When Spouses Start to Call Each Other "Mommy" and "Daddy." That's Just Creepy. - Then cut off all ties to those creapy farks!!

/Childless
//Played "step dad" to a four year old for one year.  Glad that shiat's over.
///Ya, ya, I'm sure it's different when the little farker is your own.

JPSimonetti: First off, this is not sarcasm ... Using fear as a tactic to keep kids in line is absolutely a great way to get them to pull it together in public. I use that card with my 9 year old a few times a month. A very sharp glare and pointed finger is all it takes for him to straighten up, and it doesn't cause a scene. He knows what's coming next. It is that fear that makes him straighten up. It was that fear that kept ME in line as a kid. It works, and it's more humane than constant beatings. (my father and I have a great relationship these days. it did ...


As a parent, I've found that fear is not as potent as guilt. Fear puts the onus on the parent, guilt puts the onus on the child. That may sound terrible, but fear only works up the point that people realize they have nothing to lose. Guilt will keep a person locked down indefinitely.

Hey now, children are the future. Specifically, the future strippers who will lap dance for me in 20 years.

As a parent of 6 kids (hers mine and ours) ranging form 8 to 28, the article is dead on.   Like it or not.
