Every Conversation You Have On A Parenting Message Board Is The Worst Ever
If you are or ever have been a member of a birth month message board, you’ll be well aware that every single conversation tends to follow one particular pattern: non-controversial parenting statement or question > out-of-left-field overreaction > made up statistics > liberal use of the word ‘sheeple’ > flouncing. This is especially true for the amazing Internet microcosm that is What To Expect’s “Hot Topics” board. If you’ve been thinking about joining one of these boards, let me save you the trouble by summarizing every single birth month message board thread that has even been written.

Hey guys! This is my first time posting, but I’ve been reading here for a while. My little guy is seven months old, and we’ve really been struggling to get him to drink out of a sippy cup at any meal. Does anyone have advice on how to help him? And what kind of sippy cups do you use/recommend? Thanks!!

wow. I respect my kid as a human and certainly I’m not going to infantilize my baby by handing him a sippy cup. So we are a free drinking household. The mess is totally worth it, at least if you love your kid as much as I do. Plus, your son will probably love eating every meal in a swimsuit! It’s really the only ethical choice you can make here.

It’s not that big of a deal, you guys. I just want some ideas for sippy cups. If you don’t use sippy cups just don’t read the thread.

Did your so-called “pediatrician” tell you it was okay to give your innocent child a sippy cup? Big Medicine doesn’t want you to know that 107% of children who use sippy cups will end up with deformed dental palate. And guess who’s going to be stuck forking over thousands of dollars in orthodontia costs? You are. Because you were too lazy to give your child a drink the natural way, from your wholesomely cupped hands, like our ancestors did as they knelt before pure, totally-uncontaminated-by-feces streams and rivers.

Sippy cups damage teeth? Seriously? Do you have a source for that statistic?

CHECK THE FACTS SHEEPLE!!!!1 all the facts are OUT THERE. DO YOUR RESEARCH

LindsayK, do you think I’m your servant? Where’s your proof that sippy cups AREN’T the biggest threat to our children’s teeth since fluoridated water? It sounds to me like you don’t even care how inhumanely you’re treating your poor son. I bet you vaccinate, too. I hope someone calls CPS on your ass.
