in a friend's maybe, but not in your own parents'. i think it's extremely disrespectful to your mother to keep it a secret from her. sure, maybe she already knows, but if she doesn't, it would kill her if she found out that you knew and didn't tell her. [ Reply | More ]

This is what I don't understand. What does it matter what we think? Or what happened? You are unhappy about it. You're entitled. The mistake you're making is that it was intentional against you. You don't know that. But if this insults you, then accept that it insults you, make a decision about how to proceed and move on.

Her teacher asked me about this, and I in turn asked DD why she picked this. Her response? That's what Miss (her babysitter) does when she's not playing with me!

Maybe one out of three of these experiences is really hot sex where she gets into it, we watch porn, maybe get high, lots of oral... but otherwise it's just kind of quick. I'd prefer more. Like oral every time, random BJs mid-week, etc. Do I have a right to be somewhat disappointed? I think if we had sex once a month she'd be fine with it.

[ - ] I know I will get flamed, but my 3 yr old still uses a pacifier at nap and bedtime. The dentist said this was fine up until age 5, so there is no medical reason to take it away, but I just think it's time. Anyone have any suggestions of how to take a paci away from a strong willed 3 year old? 22 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Last March, when my DD was about 3 1/4 yo, I promised that I would get her an Elsa dress if she could stop using her pacifier for 2 weeks. Her upper teeth were arched and she had a bit of an overbite, despite the use of the "orthodontic' ones. Day #1 was miserable. Day #2 was better, but she woke up from her afternoon nap screaming like an alcoholic with DTs. By day #3, she was fine. She got the Elsa costume about 10 days later and never used it since. Also, the alignment of her upper teeth has normalized since then. Find something major that your DC really, really wants, and make that the light at the end of the tunnel. [ Reply | More ]

Please, please get rid of it. I sucked my fingers at that age, and the doctors told my parents it was ok and that I would just stop on my own. Fast forward 20 years and I still had to suck my fingers to fall asleep. (I had to go to great lengths to hide this from boyfriends!) Even if it takes a few weeks of crying and screaming, it's worth it. [ Reply | More ]

… that's a psychological problem of your own. The fact that you had to hide it from boyfriends says that the general population doesn't really end up doing this - even though most babies in the US use pacifiers or have other comforting mechanisms. This is you. [ Reply | More ]

My FIL is a pretty well-known oral surgeon in Manhattan (Harvard trained) and DH and I never took pacifiers away from any of our kids. They don't promote tooth decay and they really weren't in their mouths 24/7. No braces for any of our children (and youngest is now 12). Think about it. Your adult teeth don't even come in until 6-7 years old. Baby teeth don't matter. The pacifiers on the market these days are designed NOT to mess with your bite. But even if they could … your child would literally have to be sucking on a pacifier like 12 hours a day to make a difference (letting it basically function like a retainer). People here get so worked up over stuff they don't know much about. It's astonishing. [ Reply | More ]

at 2yo, our dc had no issues - but by 2 1/2, dentist was seeing change in mouth shape due to pacifier use so we took it away. within another 6 months, mouth was shape was going back to normal. it's not just about teeth. that said, my other child who never used one needed years of braces - so it's no guarantee of anything, but no reason to create problem where one did not exist.

a light smack is not hitting and it really dpeends on the scenario - i've smacked one of my kids at that age when it was a dangerous situation or when he did something physically bad like hit or throw sand at a young kid. all the words in the world don't convey the same message. i would not have had an issue if my nanny did the same. that said, i've had my nanny for 10 years and i don't think she would ever feel comfortable doing that. but i'm stricter than she is.

I didn't post about it because I knew i would get flamed. I stopped thinking about it too, until you posted this. It was 2 nannies, with about 6 kids going to an after school playdate/meeting.
