I am wondering if any of you have ever been accused of creating your child's problems??? For example "depriving your child of sleep" and

Very much so. I have been accused of not punishing, told to spank them, that I should have been harder on them etc. etc. The one thing no one could ever say is spending not enough time. With David he was my world and yes maybe a bit spoiled but no more thna any other first born child. I guess in all reality all parents at one point or another get accused of doing something wrong, it's just our children are hard to miss cause they like to make themselves known lol.

I couldn't count the times I've been told that we're just not strict enough with Christopher. Like a spanking would magically solve all our problems. *rolleyes*

Unlike everyone else that has posted so far...I have never gotten that type of comment from anyone but my mother (who was not the greatest mother), telling me I am too hard on my kids. With three boys, my husband being ex military and having a crazy work schedule, one child with ADHD and another possibly with a spectrum disorder and then a 2yo....I have to keep a tight ship and I have strict rules in my house to keep everything in order. My kids are allowed to be kids though, I was forced to grow up too fast and will never deprive my kids of being kids.


I have never had a doctor, school or anyone else tell me anything negative about my parenting.... they all know I might rearrange their faces if they did because my kids are my life and I am very involved in advocating for them. {{{HUGS}}} to those of you that have had to put up with such comments from others! They have no right to judge unless they have walked a couple miles in your shoes, which obviously they haven't done!

I can't recall when anyone has made any accusations to my face, they would have caught HE11 if they did. But I feel like everyone must think I am a bad parent since Scott can be so bad when we go out. I find myself yelling constantly when we are out and he is running away or doing somethign he shouldn't be.

LOL. I can be pretty intimidating, even my husband says that. Especially when it come to my children, I can be fierce. I had to fight alot for Scott since he was born premature. I had nurses treat me like i was stupid, doctors treat me like a hypochondriac, and people think I was a mean mother. As a mother you have to be an advocate for your child and follow your insticts and always get a second opinion when you are told you are worried about nothing. I hate having to explain SID to people, I feel like they think I am just making excuses for my child's behavior.
