Getting pregnant advice, parenting advice, discipline advice… It seems there are many experts when it comes to all of this. I’ve heard so many: “Well maybe you should try to do it this way” or “If it were me I would…” or “well in my opinion…” Guess what, last time I checked I wasn’t asking for your opinion. Like the old cliché goes, opinions are like A$*H@les, everyone has one.
One of the best things I have heard as a “new mom” was how I (and a co-worker of mine) should have started potty-training my children at 4 months old. Yes 4 months. I laughed out loud at her thinking she was joking. Nope she was dead serious. She then explained how she put her children on the potty at that age and would just make a ssssshhhhhhh noise and they would start going pee-pee and then would be trained at a very early age.
I am pretty sure we have all relied on our family and friends along the way for tips and advice. This is not the kind of advice I’m talking about in this blog (however I know some of you may have experienced this as well). It is the strangers who want to say the most inappropriate things. Or the person who just didn’t seem to think before blurting something out.
I would love for everyone to comment in this blog two things…
- What was the most outrageous, ridiculous, bit of advice you have received?
- What was the best advice you ever received or would like to share?
I would really like to hear from all of you! This could be really interesting and also funny! So please, comment away…
