Unpopular Parenting Opinions

I really thought this one was a good one for The Company, but it was passed over. I actually have been sitting on these gems for over a month! As with anything parenting related, I rely heavily upon my private Facebook page to farm ideas. With great pride, and lots of belly laughs, I present Ten Unpopular Parenting Opinions.

My kids eat Gogurt, Goldfish or other “unhealthy” food that I grew up eating – they’ll survive.

We don’t make her hug, kiss, physically touch anyone/relatives/friends and ourselves included if she doesn’t want to. I do tell her to use her words and say, “not right now” or ” I don’t want to”. We tell her, she’s the boss of her body.

I think it’s wrong to spank/hit/cause physical pain to your child, especially considering that they are smaller and are expected to take the hits from an adult and not fight back.


If your child is obese, it should be considered child abuse.

Parenting is a long series of gut check subjective decisions only you can make – It is not rude to overtly ignore all the “intrusions” and truck along keeping the little one alive just the same.

If I choose to spank my child, that is my business!

If your kiddo knows how to love others and shows that love, then you’re rocking your version of parenthood. I’m a firm believer that there are countless correct ways to parent.
