I think you're new, so you probably weren't around for the great underage FB debate (underage baking was another one). It's a board joke, so you shouldn't take my comment seriously. Personally, I wouldn't feel any differently if you said she was listening to Taylor Swift and Justin Bieber. It really isn't impossible to keep a 2.5-hr-old away from top-40 music. If it doesn't bother you (and it sounds like it doesn't), no problem, but it doesn't make sense to complain about it. I think that's the point people were making here.

Obviously, I would rather go hang out at my country club then to deal with people on here. I just cant believe how rude people are these days. Nobody cares anymore about anything. Even opening doors and saying Please and Thank you have gone out the window! Atleast my 2 year old has manners.

No one has said anything disparaging about your or any other toddler.

I'm sorry if I offended you, but this is a debate board. You have to expect that people are going to disagree with you.

About your child? No. About toddlers? No.

It's really adorable when new people come to the board thinking it's going to be some lovey-dovey place where everyone agrees with one another and then they get all huffy and insulted when people not only DISAGREE with them (gasp!) but also engage in fact-based inquiry and witty humor (the horror!).

It is hard to understand how people disagreeing with you on a debate board is actual bashing.

How would you know about anyone's manners here?
