What's the rudest thing anyone has said to you about your parenting choices?
I truly don't think that anyone else has a right to say anything to you or to correct you. They aren't living with you and your child. They don't see the day in and out routine...and the child's behaviors. (spelled wrong>)
If someone says something to you....just smile and say..."I am so glad that worked for you....but this isn't your child..Thank you for taking interest though" and just turn on your heel and walk away.
I used to have a VERY DOMINEERING Mother in law...and I am only 5'6" and she is OVER 6' so she LOVEDDDD to stand over me with her glasses on the tip of her nose....she hated that I wouldn't "do as she said" lol.
Good Luck...ohhhh you could of course just always be a smartie pants and say....(yes...I do this one all the time)...."ohhh I LOVE to give handmade gifts...which of my children would you like?" of course I would NEVER give them my child...but it sure shuts THEM up quickly!!!! lol
15 years ago, my ex-husband got unexpectedly deported back to Mexico. I was left alone with our 1 year old daughter at the time. I was working full-time, with rent and bills to pay on my own income. I didn't have any family or friends that could help me babysitting my daughter and I could not afford the extra money to hire one. I had to take her to Mexico to live with her dad until he was able to return, thinking I would see them both again. As it turned out, My ex-husband and I separated. The following year, I went to Mexico to visit my daughter, but had to make a decision to leave her there with her dad and grandmother until I could get back on my feet. I had to do that as that was the best thing for her at the time. I thought I would see her again very soon. I hadn't planned on her father keeping her from me for a few years after that. I could not afford an attorney and at that point could not live with pulling her away from her grandmother who she got very close to, and having a big battle in court. Her dad moved to another state, and left her in Mexico. I couldn't bear the thought of her coming to live with me, when she was happy and well cared for where she was.
A close friend, who did not have children at the time, said to me,"What kind of mother DOES that? Just leave her kid for someone else to raise?" She knew all the circumstances, and all the Hell I went through... and still said this to me. I never said anything to my friend... but I stayed away from her after that. It was sad... This girl was one of my best friends at the time. She still doesn't know how that made me feel to this day. She does have her own children though. I would never say that to her or anyone.

My ex husband told me that my father would not like me. (My father never knew I was his and I've always wished I would've known him)....that's the meanest thing anyone's ever said to me.

What is the worst thing another parent or person has said to you about your parenting skills?If you haven't received a comment like that, what would be the worst comment you could think of? How would it affect your parenting skills? How would you react? Would you even react or ignore it?

What's the biggest parenting mistake you did?Mine was putting some chili on my daughter's slice of cake. I know it's rude but I was thinking that it was a good punishment for her after not cleaning her room. Don't ask me what happened next. I really felt bad about it and let's just say I'm happy...

If God is all knowing, and he knows the choices we will make, do we really have free will?If God knows everything, and he knows all the choices that we are going to make before we are even confronted with the choice, how can it be that we have free will? The only way for us to have free will...
