Parenting Tip From A PRO!

You may need a pen and paper to jot down this important parenting tip:

Giving a crying child candy sounds like a surefire solution for happier times,

but will only result in a mouthful of colorful, sticky drool dripping down their mouth.

Don’t do it.

Instead, take the candy and run.

Find a cozy closet and wait out the “episode”.

You’re welcome.

    Correct. And for all the W-M fabric dept. associates, a sticker will not do anything to calm a three year-old who is losing her @#$%. The only thing that will change is that she will be losing her @#$% with a sticker in her hand.

    See, this is what you do that keeps people coming here. Anyone else with that title for a post and I would think, oh good grief, now what am I doing wrong? But not you Mama Kat. Only you could advertise parenting advice from a PRO and I am clicking over here as fast as I can. The only thing I would add is that this is a good reason to have fine chocolates on hand “for your kids” at all times. ;-)
