So he posted that on response to that picture then?

Im sorry to say but that person is a idiot and I would love to give them a piece of my mind. Babies are people and they do deserve respect. The only time I have let my kids cry was when I got frustrated and laid them down in there crib and took 5 minutes to myself to calm down then I went back and was more level headed and was able to fix the problem. But if babies arent people than what are we cause we were babies at one point to?

That statement is ridiculous. Babies are people. Of course they deserve respect and consideration. I respect my child...he is his own being, with every right to his own body, and his own emotional and physical needs. He is not less than me. I am responsible for him, and it is my job to discipline him, but he is not less of a person than I am simply because I am older, and he deserves respect, care, attention, and consideration for his health and emotional well being.



How can I teach him to respect himself if I do not respect him? How can I really expect him to respect me if I do not respect him?

He is disrespectful as hell. His wife will not even have children with him, now I can see why. I'm pretty sure he commented on it because I reposted it to my Facebook wall.



Ugh. What a dilemma. His wife and I are friends and I like her - she is actually amazing with children. But he is an ass.

Yes, he said that exclusively in response to the picture and the positive comments people were making on the picture.

Babies are little people. They deserve every bit of attention that we feel we deserve. It is because their experience is so small that we should give them the extra attention and care. Why should their only experience be fear and loneliness until they are able to discover the world? What I think is that he was raised with a huge amount disregard as a child.

That would be a deal breaker for me if I were here. Thank goodness they don't have children together!

I agree - he also told me that he once spanked his nephew really hard one time because he had an accident in his pants. -___- I didn't even know what ti say, except that I disagreed with spanking.



I added to the picture that we have the same social and emotional needs as babies even when we're adults - we are fulfilled with attachment most of the time, unless we have abandonment issues. Even as adults, we get married, share a bed, turn to our spouse or partner or best friend for emotional/social interaction. It's a basic need that we need to have met and isn't exclusive to babies. He's a pretty weird guy. Honestly I was insulted when I read his comment. Like I said, IDC if other parents use the CIO technique in their homes... but I don't go around acting like a perfect, know-it-all on the subject or degrade them for their choices.

CIO is really not an efective method, and goes against historically how children were raised.
