So we just found out yesterday that my brother in law and sister in law are pregnant again. They have have a 4 year old, and I just can't help feeling like, why do they get another one? It frustrates me because they don't appear to be all that interested in parenting. They're by no means neglectful, but they certainly aren't what I'd call good parents. They let this child do whatever he wants to, with no consequences. He throws things, yells, talks back to everyone, swears, and has no consequences for any of it. Not to mention that they were actively trying to get pregnant and yet my sister in law continued to smoke and drink. I just don't understand it. I gave up caffeine and alcohol when we started trying (I don't smoke), and I'm evidently not even ovulating. And I know all the things that women on this board go through trying to become parents, and these people who aren't even good at it get to do it again. It just doesn't seem fair! Ok, I'm done. I just needed to vent, because I'm not sure how much my husband would appreciate me slamming his brothers parenting skills. Thanks for listening.
