So much parenting news, so little time. Here are just a few things that crossed my computer this week that I just couldn’t ignore.
Breastfeeding on Sesame Street. Apparently, it used to happen. Who knew?
18-year-old mother who shot intruder. I would protect my children at any cost but don’t believe in keeping guns in the house. Read the stats on that one. Having a gun in the home increases the possibility of someone being shot in the home or someone using the gun to take his or her own life.
Beyonce is now a role model for black mothers. I don’t think so. If she nurses her baby in public, I may reconsider.
Letting children cry it out kills brain cells. Sleep divides parents into two camps. Those who get it and those who do not. I was not sleep deprived and will not feel guilty about it.
Lying to children. Some parents say it’s okay to lie to their children. I say lying breeds more lying. Where and when does it stop? Get a clue, people.
Airlines want to charge a fee to families who want to sit together. Really? I have no words.
