WYRK Listeners Weigh In On The Worst Parenting Advice Of All Time
I overheard a couple who seemed to be dating while I was in line for the store yesterday, and they were talking about, what seemed like, another couple and their bad parenting advice.
So, last night I decided to figure out exactly what our listeners thought was “really bad parenting advice”. Of course you guys came up with some (hilarious and) great answers!
“Smack your child’s gums with a spoon so I could tell if she’s teething. I guess you’d hear a click if there are teeth under the gums?”
Why do I have a feeling most people don’t do this?
“Give your newborn water when he wakes up in the middle of the night so that he will learn that it wasn’t worthwhile to wake up.”
LOL how cruel
“If a breastfeeding mom isn’t dressed warm in the winter and she catches a cold her breast milk will spoil”
OK — I just HAD to put this in there, lol. Horrible advice and horribly untrue.
“Sharing a bed with your baby is perfectly safe.”
Bad advice? Anyone do this?
“You can never spoil or hold a baby too much!”
What do you think?
