Diogenes: If you allow your kids to cruise TFD threads I would seriously have to question your parenting style.
The My Little Pony Killer: Actually, if your child is acting up in public, then there *is* a second step after Calm the fark Down.
markfara: The My Little Pony Killer: Actually, if your child is acting up in public, then there *is* a second step after Calm the fark Down.And a third, and a fourth, etc.
Krieghund: If only there was some kind of medication that could help with that...
Satan's Bunny Slippers: I predict well reasoned, rational discussion in this thread.
meat0918: //All bets are off if the kid is tired or hungry. In that case, get them home as quickly as possible.
Agnes Gonxha's Confidant: Spank them when necessary
Smelly Pirate Hooker: I look forward to a lengthy, rancorous discussion filled with snotty comments about helicopter parents, snowflakes, crotch droppings, breast feeding, etc./my first green, if I'm not mistaken//Thanks, Fark, and Huffington Post
gopher321: Made the decision not to have any kids so you can do whatever you want in your life? Calm the f*ck down....Oh wait. I'm already calm.
Rev.K: Ok, I can live with that./2 kids
Grumpy Cat: After my friend's husband left her when she was 7 1/2 months pregnant,
CrazyCracka420: gopher321: Made the decision not to have any kids so you can do whatever you want in your life? Calm the f*ck down....Oh wait. I'm already calm.Keep telling yourself it was a voluntary decision, you need a willing sexual partner to get a woman pregnant.
CrazyCracka420: As an expecting parent of our first child I'm going to go with the Native American approach and not going to encourage the baby to cry (by not responding to the crying). First time it starts crying it's going to be hung up on a tree out back for 30 minutes (obviously exaggerating, but I will do my best not to respond to crying, as to not encourage it).Will pay plenty of attention to the child, but will not be a helicopter parent. I will teach them to be aware of their surroundings and will not be driving them everywhere. They can walk to the bus stop and home without my supervision. If we live close enough to the school, they can walk to the school and back without needing me to supervise or give them a ride to/from school.I will not overfeed my child, I will do my best to feed them non-processed foods. I will encourage them to be active physically as well as mentally. I will not indoctrinate them with religion, I will allow them to be a child.
neongoats: CTFD followed by telling your kid to STFU.All you need to know about taking your kid in public.
meat0918: Just follow through, and they (generally) stop.
cowgirl toffee: Typical loving family...[img9.imageshack.us image 602x440]
Prank Call of Cthulhu: meat0918: Just follow through, and they (generally) stop.That's the key that so many parents fail to understand. There have to be consequences, not just vague threats.If you're the kind of parent I see in the grocery store who is saying, "Now Eric, stop hitting your sister no Eric, don't do that put that back Eric, you can't have that Eric, I told you not do that Eric, stop annoying the lady Eric, Eric quit it, I said no, Eric Eric come over here right now, what did I tell you Eric quit running Eric Eric stop no Eric don'tdothatEricEricstopbehavingthatwaynoEricquititEricEricEricEricEric EricEricEricEric..." then you have failed as a parent.
