Of course, like all things, there are a few bad apples and their sour attitudes can easily color the entire season. The worst offense I have discovered so far are the parents are are very obviously there because they are obsessed with winning. More

Yes, I watched Extreme Guide To Parenting, again last night. I am a glutton for punishment. Each week it’s becoming clearer and clearer that all of these “extreme” parents are simply saddled with issues from their childhoods and trying to write the wrongs of their upbringing through their own kids. Which is sick, if you ask me.
There’s a UK woman getting some negative attention today for revealing that she “lets” her 8-year-old write letters to prisoners in jail for murder. She’s even going as far as “letting” her daughter visit one of the inmates. Julie Paris has been writing letters to inmates herself for years. I’m pretty sure her kids didn’t think of this idea on their own.
Parents use phones, too – isn’t that weird? I know once a baby emerges from your body or you’ve helped create one, you should spend the rest of your days staring lovingly at your offspring. Not all of us do that, because we are horrible people. Thank God this Parents On Phones Tumblr exists to highlight the extremely neglectful practice of averting your eyes from your kids for a few damn minutes.
A nervous neighbor called officers after spotting the girl carrying the weapon around at the swimming pool in the complex where they lived. “You never know what could happen if that gun would’ve gone off,” the neighbor said. The girl told investigators her dad usually keeps his gun on the counter or under his pillow “in case someone breaks in.” More
I guess I see parenting styles in the same way that I regard bonsai trees; it’s a lot of work that’s designed to make sure that your kid comes out just so and only really dedicated people can stick to it because the rest of us will just fall asleep.

In no other place in the entire world can you find such a complete microcosm of absolute human depravity and horribleness than the grocery store, where dreams go to die. More
Brandi Glanville, of Real Housewives fame, said some pretty awful stuff about her 7-year-old son on her podcast Friday. and I’m sorry, but celebs who do this are terrible parents. More
To say that I am a paranoid parent is an understatement; it’s something I freely acknowledge. My house is childproofed big-time. Guess what? Life is constantly teaching me little lessons, one of which is – no matter how careful you are something always comes up. It’s a rule of parenting – it will occasionally be a shit-show. More
Old fashioned parenting tips are just the worst… More
There’s nothing that shakes your confidence more as a new parent than having a less-than-perfect example from your own parents. And when I say less-than-perfect, I don’t mean that you weren’t allowed to stay out past 10 PM on weeknights. I mean a really, really bad example that borders on emotional abuse, in my case. More
I consider myself to be a pretty non-judgmental person. I really don’t care how you birth your kid, how you feed your kid, and how you raise your kid, as long as you don’t bring your screaming kid into a fancy restaurant. More
A**holes have babies, too. I just thought I would put that out there for those of you who are shocked when you see a woman who happens to have a child with her do something inane and totally unreasonable. There was an article in the Daily Mail today called, Rise Of The Me-First Moms. I don’t think this is a phenomena we need to be worrying about. More
There are many places people think are inappropriate for children – restaurants, bars even airplanes. But museums are one place we can all agree are kid friendly, right? Wrong. Not when there are parents like this roaming the earth. More
