15 great reader comments about parenting


We’ve had so many wonderful parenting comments lately that we’ve had to share a few with you. Here are 15 funny, wise insights …

About baby feeding:

“It was exhausting trying to breastfeed my twins. One twin was great, the other not so much, and I slept for an hour between feeding and pumping. I decided that a happy mom was better for my twins, so after three months we switched to formula. They are now healthy nine-year-olds. Anything that suits you is the best. “- DD

About parental nostalgia:

“A friend of mine told me,‘ You loved every stage your kids were in. You will surely love all the stages to come. “It was so true and useful to remember. Newborns are so cute and kids are fun, but school-age kids and honestly teenagers are the best. When they leave home they make you so proud and come back to these great visits. I look forward to what follows! ”- Heather

“I once heard the ringing of a stranger’s bell: the merry baby’s belly laughed and brought joy to my heart.” – Ann

According to the tried and tested advice:

“When my children were small and when we traveled, I would always choose them from postcards along the way. Back then, when we were at the restaurant waiting for our meal, it was a great time to write a short note to grandparents or family at home or even a note to myself! “- Shelley

“I have two children – an eight-year-old and a four-year-old who are in the spectrum of autism. Some children, but especially autistic children, feel uncomfortable in unfamiliar situations, so try to talk to them as much as possible about what is coming. For example, ‘We go to a restaurant, there will be your relatives, the restaurant looks like this, they have this food that you like, when we wait for our food, you can quietly color it or play with some toys etc. Etc. . ‘My daughter loves predictability and hates surprises, so if something is a surprise, I try to make it fun for her. As if guessing with her how food will be served to her, ‘Do you think french fries will be skinny or fat? Will the tomato be on top or on the side? ‘”- Kiana

I hated mornings, and when I was a teenager, my mom started doing a new thing where she would open the door of my room and cheerfully shout, ‘Get out of bed!’ Her joyful curse was absolutely ridiculous for both of us and started the day with a funny note that really took the lead. “- Rebecca

“My best parenting advice is to create a habit of telling about your feelings. Children are not afraid of feelings and are not blind to them. If you tell them you are frustrated, sad, or happy and why, you will give them a tongue to talk about how they feel and feel how the feelings diminish and merge and change over time. I don’t mean the diluted version (like, ‘Don’t worry, mom’s just tired’). Break up a little. Be a man. Tell them the truth about how you feel, because they can already see it. By giving them a rich, deep language, it shows that they can experience, tolerate, and move with complex emotions and be open with you about how they feel. “- Olivia

On sweet sayings:

“I was babysitting, and one day she was mostly away. I asked her what she had, and she said, ‘The shop of my head is almost closed,’ WHAT IS SUCH A RELATIVE FEELING. “

“When our son was three years old, we were on a train that was driving next to our old apartment and we told him, ‘We lived here before you were born.’ And he said, ‘Yes, that was before I came and found you two scoundrels.’ “

“The other night, when I hugged my five-year-old overnight, he leaned over to me and said:” I think I got the best mom in the mom store! “And a few months ago:‘ Just, how do you make a pear? I mean, is it just an apple you mash with your hands? ‘”- Isabella

“I have twin nine-month-old girls who started sitting on their own about a month ago. Although it is not as exciting as it was the first time, every time one of the babies sits next to my four-year-old daughter, she VERY DOES: ‘MOM, THE BABIES ARE SITTING !!! LOOOOOOOK !!! GOOD JOB, ANNIE !!! GOOD JOB, BRIDGE !!! YOU DID !!!!!! ‘And we can’t help but laugh because it happens at least 25 times a day and she’s been doing full cheerleading status for the last month with applause and jumping up and down for her sisters! I mean who doesn’t love to be cheered on ?! ”- Bren

About dreams of adulthood:

“Mine definitely involved signing credit card accounts; it seemed so glamorous and grown-up. Eavesdropping on a payment card is convenient, but my inner ten-year-old was kind of sad when you didn’t have to sign things anymore! “- S.

“I always thought that being an adult meant talking with your hands while holding a glass of wine at the table. I also definitely wanted to drive a minivan and use the handbrake. “- Kelly

“Everyone was based on the teachers I had. I wanted lipstick rings on coffee cups, clickable fluttering heels, and thick thick nails. I’m a teacher now, and my students comment on my earrings, a collection of boots, and piles of books all over the room. “- Ann

“I’m pretty disappointed that coming of age involved so few opportunities to dramatically pull out the earrings before answering the phone.” – Karin
