[ - ] A friend of mine delivered a stillborn baby at 32 weeks. She posted a very graphic photo of the child post birth on FB. She is clearly comforted by publicly sharing this but I must say I was shocked. 4 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I don't know about "graphic" but my cousin posted a picture of herself in her hospital bed holding her baby while they were waiting for him to pass away. It's jarring, to be sure, but my comfort level over a photo is nothing compared to what she had to go through losing him. If it makes her feel better or helps her process something, let her share the picture. The worst thing to happen when you go through something like this is for people to move on immediately and try to pretend the baby never existed. She needs to say, "this was my baby."

[ - ] I have no issue at all with tiger parents. I do however have an issue with tiger parents who pretend to be laid back. For example: "we really didn't want dc to pursue ballet seriously so in order to turn dc off it we enrolled dc into the most rigorous class we could find and to our disappointment dc loved it so we tried out for the most selective program..." Just own it and be who you are. Don't lie to people it's gross 8 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Ok that is kind of goofy. BUT it is also true that there are some families where the parents are more laid back than the kids (I know, we are one of them.) My dd tiger mothers herself, it is who she is, we are glad to get her where she needs to go but the initiative comes from her. [ Reply | More ]

Do you slice the apples? Add a dip etc. Sometimes you have to. But I don't eat much fruit which to me is just a bunch of sugar anyway. By the time it sat in a grocery shelf after being on a plane somewhere, it's not got a lot of nutrition there to worry about. JMHO. [ Reply | More ]
