This page is a place for you to get things off your chest.
Let me start: Sometimes I make my kid put damp undies back on because I don’t want to do the laundry every two seconds and HE NEEDS TO LEARN HOW TO USE THE TOILET. Wow, what a load off! (See? Just putting something out there can make you feel better!)
Don’t worry, your secrets are safe with me. Unless you go psycho and say some super-fucked-up shit that compels me to blow the whistle. But you won’t do that, right? Right.
Bury your parenting secrets via the entry form below, and they will be displayed, anonymously (or not: you can enter whatever you want in the “name” field), on this page. For all your parenting compatriots to see, and gasp at/laugh at/identify with/get ideas from.
I tried to show my oldest how to skateboard.
...with my youngest in a baby bjorn strapped to my chest.
We fell, but it turned-out much better than it should have.
I tell my son that the police will come if he keeps throwing a tantrum. Shuts him right up, but I do feel guilty afterward.
My 4 yr old has been so heinous this week I almost called preschool w a fake emergency reason why I had to pick her up late
My son got into the fun habit of screaming at me constantly wanting ice cream. I was tired of fighting it all the time so I bought a candy mold, smeared Greek yogurt over it, froze it and now he thinks it's ice cream. After telling him, oh sure you can have ice cream, and not saying no he didn't find joy in the game anymore and has since stopped. Problem
I routinely tell my 3yo that whatever she's asking for or to do is against the law so I don't have to fight with her about it. Currently, she thinks that watching Disney Jr during prime time hours, wearing socks with sandals, and drinking soda under the age of 12 is illegal.
I routinely tell my son that the snack I'm eating is "spicy" so he won't want it. I'll say it about ice cream. IDGAF!
