It has to do with both, and it's very possible. Around 6 months is usually when babies start to develop the capability to repeat two syllable sounds. I've seen some of my nieces & nephews talk early too, and some later. It all depends on the child... And I don't see how how I view my child's abilities is deluded in any way. I hope once I have # 2, I have enough time to help foster DD's education as much as I've been able to help DS. I'm an honest person that wouldn't lie for attention or superiority or whatever. I don't think it's right either when parents voluntarily retaliate with when their kids did something, just because they did it 1st and they want to feel better than the other person. I just thought it was low for you to say that parents who say that their child has done something earlier than some other children are full of shit.

:roll: That's what all the supermommies of these genius toddlers say.
Whatever, keep telling yourself this stuff. You're full of it and everyone else knows it except the other first time moms competing in the development olympics.

Development olympics? :roll: Dude, I'm just saying it's possible -look it up... And like I said, I'm not going to lie about my kid. That's just pathetic and I like to be honest. Am I proud of my son? Yes.. Do I talk about his accomplishments? Only if people want to know.
Quoting * Sara *:" I don't spank and I hate to see parents threaten/bully their kids. I always feel so bad for those children."
I don't get parents that bully. "Shut up or I'll give you something to cry about". I heard that about 5 times from some a*****e in walmart the other day, I hate going there. Why even have kids if you're just going to be a jerk to them all of the time? Spanking/hitting/popping/smacking etc. I don't get how people do it. I don't get how people let their babies cry either. Annd one I don't get, that a lot of other people seem perfectly fine with, is calling your kid/s names.
Oh how fun!
I have a problem with parents who co-sleep. Especially when they complain they don't get enough sleep or when they finally decide to let them sleep in their own bed and are getting furious because their child cries.
I hate seeing kids over 1 years old with a bottle.
I hate it when parents keep their children awake super late. Like 11:30, 12:30 at night, or later and let their kids sleep until 12 in the afternoon or later. Then wonder why or "wish" their children would go to bed earlier. I don't think that's a healthy sleeping pattern, especially when they get close to school age.
I am sure I will have more once I think of more.
Quoting Ravey Candyass:" you don't like when people co-sleep at all? or only when they complain?"
Personally, I don't like it. If mothers want to do it, their prerogative. I just can't stand when they complain about it. I think my job recently made me feel differently about certain things lol.
Quoting X ALL the Y!:" I hate passive aggressive people. It's not "family teasing" taken out of context. This is mean, nasty ... [snip!] ... This is mean, nasty people saying it with very clear intent to hurt and put down their kids. Nice try. Thanks for playing."
Quoting * Sara *:" I love me some co sleeping. I don't sleep as well with my babies are in another room."
:!: I preferrred the co-sleeping because CHub never slept anywhere else. from the day we brought her home she only slept if I was within arms reach. and yes, that includes naps.

Lol or when people makes posts on here like,"um is it normal for my two year old to be completing 5000 piece jigsaw puzzles at this age?!?!"
....b***h you know you just wanted to brag lol. Quit playing.
I hate when people make assumptions. I constantly get people asking if my '4 year old' is mentally handicapped because he's not walking properly or talking yet. b***h he's 18 months old ... leave the kid alone.
I hate seeing newborn babies in those uncomfortable poses when parents get professional pictures. They're bent and stuffed into props to make the photos cute. The poor kids looks super uncomfortable and like he/she just wants to sleep.
I am very much tolerant of most people's choices as parents.
What I truly hate is seeing people complain and reach out for help they will never take. As in, they are stuck in an unhappy relationship or a volatile marriage, and they know they want to leave, but they don't.
The FIRST THING people will say is we don't know if there is abuse, control, etc. HOWEVER, I believe when you KNOW what is right for you and your children, nothing will stop you from getting them into a better environment. Even if that means having to be a single parent, or working your ass off to provide for your kids.
Call me intolerant but I just hate it. Habitual whiners who will do nothing to better their lives.
I hate when parents let their kids stay up until they just pass out where ever they are at. Or let their school aged kids watch TV until 1 am and then finally make them go to bed.
I also hate parents who feed their kids nothing but garbage all day everyday. Such as chips, pop, juice, fruit snacks, pop corn, cookies from a package... And complain about how much fresh food costs. FFS shops sales. But a damn bag of bulk apples. Some yogurt. Enough with the processed crap. A treat once in awhile shit, once a day... But not for every single meal thing they eat day in and day out.
Oh and I am pro breastfeeding for my family. I don't think formula is the devil or anything. Do what you have to do to make your home a happy one.. But FFS stop bottle propping. How hard is it to cuddle your baby while they eat.
