Lol. My dd (now 11) loves to hear the story about her broken binky, but at the time, she wasn't thrilled. She threw the binky across the room, cried for about 5 minutes, and then toddled over and put it back in her mouth. I guess she decided a broken binky was better than no binky at all. So my dh took to cutting a little more off of it every day until there was only a stub left, and she finally lost interest in it. She was two, but she's still my stubborn kid.;)

ITA with everything you said.

I have an 11 y/o dd too - while a fair share of kids in her class of cell phones already, enough don't, dd included.

Differing opinions is not negativity.

How would you know about anyone's manners here?

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