6 Questions Every Parent Should Ask Themselves

Great photo but all I can think about is finding glitter in cracks and crevaces (human and furniture) for the next two years.

To spank or not to spank… That is not the question here.

Neither is whether or not you co-sleep with your child.

There will be no talk of TV watching or fast food eating here.

Breastfeeding? Eh. Do it if you want/don’t do it if you don’t. It’s up to you.

Appropriate ages for ear piercings, make-up and cell phones?

MEH.

These are important questions. Questions for the ages. Questions like: Do you think the person who invented glitter later came to regret it?

Click onward for 6 very important questions every parent should ask themselves courtesy of the Huffington Post.

 

Why is it “don’t make me count to three”? Why isn’t it “four” or “five” so that we don’t have to pause after “two” for such a long time?

What is it about getting into bed that makes children so thirsty?

You know that terrible, silent pause a baby or toddler makes after they get hurt but before they begin crying? does that pause just become a lot of swearing (@#%#!!!) when we become adults?

Is there an official government position on when you should stop referring to yourself in the third person (“Give Mommy the spoon”) to your children?

If “in diapers” and “potty trained” are part of the popular lexicon, shouldn’t there also be a pithy phrase to describe kids who can poop in the potty but need to be wiped by an adult?

Do you think the person who invented glitter later came to regret it?
