Yes ... But "perfect child syndrome" sets kids up to fail in the harsh, cruel real world.

When we changed her food to a higher quality one, she had a "healing crisis" and we ended up dropping the pheno completely and she racked up looong seizure free periods (1-4 years). She would have about 6 full grand mals in 36 hours when she clustered.
I hope it is lowering her threshold. Seizures such, and they're scary. Though... have to at least have a bright side at this point. Random people keep asking me if she's got a brain tumor.

Right... I think that is what everyone is saying.

yea, I agree participation trophys are a bit silly, but I think instilling confidence, positive learning techniques and reinforcement is important and I love that parents are getting more in on that.

They do participation ribbons with DOGS now! There was some dog expo I went to where Jack got a participation ribbon.

When I worked at the horse barn I saw some very "interesting" parents who brought their kids to ride. Parents who were genuinely upset that we could not rearrange our public ride schedule around their kid's nap. Yes, lady, I'm going to bump allll these other people who planned ahead to keep your kid's schedule. Parents who had to be told over and over and over again that their kids CANNOT run in the barn before absently reprimanding them (with the kids ignoring them of course) and then going back to talking to the other parent there. Moms of screaming toddlers saying "Now is you don't stop that you aren't going to get to ride the pony." The kids never stopped and the moms never kept them from riding said pony. Even the pony would look at them like "We all know that's not true lady, put your screaming offspring on my back and lets get this over with."

I think that kids are the same, but parenting and the way society treats kids changes through the generations.

My dogs suck as cuddling. I'm trading them in for a work dog.

My dog is getting old and it sucks

He went with me to Bass Pro and fishing today and he chased the ducks and tried to eat the fish we caught, but he wouldn't swim in the water after the ducks like he used to

My baby is not allowed to be aging like this....I'm starting to think he's also going blind and his hearing is starting to go :/

Also disturbing that our very first conversation EVER was on that subject. You have bizarre pick-up lines my friend.
I want to know the topic now...

You want me to move in because you feel vulnerable when you couldn't get in contact with me and thought I was hurt. Not because you feel like you are ready for that commitment.

this is so dumb.

and my friends are all like "well don't you love him? why wouldn't you want to move in with him?"
Of course I love him but I'm not ready!

gah!
Your friends are being superficial and silly. You have a super nice apartment and a great boyfriend. They don't need to be combined this soon.

When I was a kid I didn't know anyone who got in trouble at school and their parents would come flying in yelling at the teacher because their kid screwed up. No, they would discipline the kid for getting in trouble. Now if a kid gets in trouble there are A LOT of parents who fly off the handle on the teachers. Like how DARE they accuse little Jimmy of being less than perfect. if he screwed up it must be the teachers fault. That is the big difference I notice.


Agreed. So much. Parenting has totally changed.
