So the little issue i have been having with James about the hitting, I have put a status on Facebook so someone can give me their advice on what to do....Hes not even 2. So this girl i went to High school with decided she wanted to tell me James needs counseling and another girl commented it and said James is just a baby/little boy and he doesnt talk or anything, counseling is not the answer and i responded with agreement...well the mean girl said "Well I didn't know how old he was but when you have a baby you need to be able to control your older child at all times. Nuff said" and I said " Listen, Sarah, I do control my dang son. I have been doing everything i can. Now, dont tell me how to parent my kids, All i was asking was ADVICE on how to get it to STOP without having to do anything like counseling. So little miss Sarah, b4 you comment on someones post...have a little respect and stop saying i do not control my son. Are you here??? No you arent" and my friend said "he's a child...A YEAR OLD...he isn't old enough to understand things...what can a counselor do that she can't? It's not like James is gonna start talking to her, or like the counselor can understand him...he'll adjust eventually...he just needs time...it's easy for us to say what we'll do but until you are in that situation you can't tell her what she should do...." the mean girl said "Yeah, well my daughter just turned two and she is well behaved and knows what time out time is. You're the ones who were making fun of my good advice when I was only trying to help, but obviously my methods are better so good luck! " and my response was " I wasnt making fun of your advice. I was clearly stating my son is a BABY too young for counseling. and My son knows he isnt supposed to do it....does that stop him, no. I put him in time out...it doesnt work. YOU ARE NOT HERE TO TELL ME HOW MY PARENTING SKILLS ARE!!! SO DO NOT..DO NOT SAY I DO NOT CONTROL MY SON!" well after that...she took me off her friends list which is actually GREAT because leaves less work for me to do it myself....but I am so LIVID that this girl told me to control my son when she is 3000 miles away and shes not here to see my parenting skills which are FINE. I am not the only one to have a problem with their kids going thru the hitting phase...I almost cried because of her comment...but it kinda makes me laugh because I know she doesnt know whats going on. Her daughter doesnt have a sibling and she acts like she is a PERFECT parent...but I am sorry...no matter how good of a parent you are....no body is perfect! rant over.
