We live in a world of absurdities. The recommendations are not to give your child sugar until the first year of life. On almost every "parenting" page we read that excess sugar negatively affects health - of the most known - damages the teeth and gets used to the sweet taste, which makes it difficult to use a balanced diet in subsequent years.
Just a few years ago, it was a bad tone to give titles to books that were associated with intimate body parts, physiology, or referring to non-cultural epithets. When the Dung of the Nike award winner Wojciech Kuczok hit the stores, many of us sensed that the literary market would soon be filled with blatant content and names.
Infants, according to studies, are already experiencing orgasm. Children about a year and a half-two years old discover intimate places and sometimes touch them to relieve stress or make themselves happy. Lew Starowicz, a well-known Polish sexologist, emphasizes that children are not born asexual. WHO adds that the development of sexuality takes place throughout life.
Almost every parent, planning or expecting a child, prepares not only the room, clothes and toys, but also decides WHAT parents they would like to be for their child. The most obvious seems to be managing the system in which they grew up or quite the opposite (especially if they grew up in a pathological family, incomplete or guided by violence against children).
Websites devoted to raising children are roaring with condemnation of walkers. Meanwhile, in my case, the walker was ... one of the most relevant gadgets that I bought for a child. A common opinion is, in my opinion, harmful for walkers. It has not been proven that learning how to walk in a walker caused postural defects and development problems of the musculoskeletal system when used correctly.
Admitting today that punishment is like saying that you are a worse parent. As such, penalties are considered a sign of adult weakness, a sign of non-modernity, or even backwardness. Parents reaching for this method do not fit into the "relaxed" world in which the word plays the most important role.
I still remember the days when I didn't have children. Before I gave birth to my first child, many things were incomprehensible to me. Just like the scene described below. Actually, the behavior of one of her heroines. I am not surprised much today. I know that parenting sometimes changes our lives so much that many things that were previously unthinkable suddenly become everyday reality.
It is so with our mother-tat life that what works for one parent may not be good for others. Meanwhile, the fashion that prevailed often does not allow to admit that certain solutions do not work in some situations. Just like wearing a sling. For many, I have this option (and no one denies it), for others it doesn't work.
Let's be honest: learning to potty is not easy. Especially at the beginning, when the child may have a problem with holding a minute or two, needed to reach the toilet. Often I had the "pleasure" to run with a child in my arms, praying that we would be able to go to the toilet in the mall. It was good when I knew which direction to go ... One of the mishaps taught me to be cautious.
History is interesting in many ways. Let's start by scratching the background: a large pool in the UK in Cambridge, a young woman bathing with a baby in a jacuzzi can not cope with a nine-month-old toddler who is starting to get nervous. The idea to give him a breast comes to her mind.
Do you treat your children equally? So you climbed to the heights, you achieved Zen, a higher initiation in the art of parenthood. Of course, I mock. What is equal treatment? Is it dividing the roll in half, with care that both children get exactly the same piece, with the accuracy of the crumb, or is it rather giving the whole roll to a hungry toddler and a kiss to the thirsty kisses?
When the ruling party tries to convince the public not to speak on an uncomfortable matter, we can count on the fact that an equally outrageous topic will appear in the media that will try to divert our attention from problems that require immediate action. So is the alarming news about Polish pedophiles just a sensation journalists want to earn?
In our society, something that some people perceive as abnormal, worse, strange, disgusting or perverted. It is with such opinions that breastfeeding women can often meet, especially those who decide to feed their child after their first birthday. Whose breasts? Why is this happening?
Sometimes, while shopping, I saw young mothers walking around the hypermarket with an infant. I was despised for this behavior. I didn't understand a parent who goes shopping with a baby for several weeks while his place is at home. I happened to think "what a damn mother", holding back not to point her finger.
Parenthood of closeness is an idea beautiful, almost fairy-tale, sweet, delightful, smelling like a freshly bathed baby, smooth as his clean skin, devoid of any creases and imperfections. And for this reason not very real. Inflatable to the limit, it bursts like a soap bubble. Although supporters emphasize that according to its principles, you can raise a child (not even raise, because closeness parenting is "non-upbringing"), the truth is that the older the children and the more experienced the parents, the less often this style is taken seriously .
Vaccination is becoming increasingly difficult. A reasonable parent who not only reads official recommendations but also gets acquainted with the arguments of anti-vaccination movements can have a big dilemma. On the one hand, we have greedy vaccine manufacturers who are not immune to their influence, and on the other, we have many years of experience during which children are vaccinated with more or less success.
One would like to write: what people will not come up with ... because this idea would seem crazy: a spa for newborns. A place where, after a hard day of dirtying diapers, sucking milk, crying and naps, an infant can relax and unwind at the highest level. In the United States, Houston Float Baby offers SPA for three-week newborns.
The young couple really wanted to take the newly born baby to the wedding. However, they could not decide on how to do it. In the end, they came up with the idea of putting the baby on a train and thus including the baby in the marriage ceremony. The storm began when the photo was published on the internet.
Do you kiss your child on the lips? Neither pediatricians nor dentists answer this question clearly. When asked, they usually do not recommend or forbid kisses on the lips. Still, this form of showing love for a child has its strong supporters and opponents. Some say that it is unhygienic, others that it is reserved for a partner, not a child ... there are also those who do not see in the kisses on the lips nothing inappropriate.
The following strong letter from a woman planning an abortion to her unborn child was made available thousands of times last week, when it was published on a foreign website. He touches a sensitive point - the topic of abortion, which has been invariably discussed for years. An anonymous woman who signs herself as "h" informs that she is planning an abortion next Friday, says "Little Thing" about her child.
There is no parent who does not know the Fisher Price brand. The flagship products are in every home - Pot Block or Puppy Puppy. The undoubted advantage of all products of this brand is the quality of workmanship and durability. And the disadvantages? Well they are! More and more visible. While the world is rediscovering the wonderful and wise simplicity of wooden blocks and rag dolls, FP blindly follows the progress, proposing educational toys that paradoxically teach less and less.
