Earlier this month, one of our fellow bloggers, Jessie, gave us an account of her toddler’s introduction to butchering chickens, which to some (especially those raising kids in the city, miles away from chickens and cows), could be considered extreme. “It’s all relative,” says Jessie. “Butchering chickens may seem extreme to some, but it’s part of living on a farm. All of my farming friends do the same.”
This got us wondering what other things parents were doing that may not seem “extreme” to them — but may seem a bit outrageous to other parents around the country. To get right into the thick of things, we asked other Babble bloggers to share stories of their most extreme acts of parenting — and those that they experienced themselves growing up. Their answers may surprise you. Read through their stories and decide for yourself how “extreme” they are, after the jump!
What about you? Tell us in the comments the most extreme thing you’ve done with your kids!
