You misunderstand. <SHOCKER>Look- you are the one who used the word "rude" to describe what you think is rudeness in babies and you also said that babies have to be taught/trained to not be rude.
So here you are- back pedaling again.
NOW you say not "literally" and NOW you say they have no concept of rudeness- the very same thing you ORIGINALLY said they have to be taught not to be- rude.
Babies don't know what rude means, but they do act rude without even knowing it. YOu have to train them not to be.
I started training my sons as soon as I could, just a few months old. I'm a diligent dad.So just what are you starting at the age of 6 months old in "training" babies to behave a certain way?
And it is not a fact that the sooner you start "training" them the better persons they will turn out to be.
Who are all these "many people"?There are plenty of people in this world who were neglected by their parents, abused by their parents, not raised well or with love, concern or care who turned out to be GREAT people.
There are also plenty of people in this world who came from great family lives, stability, loving parents, strict parents, diligent parents who turned out to be not great at all.
What are you doing? You want a "GOTCHA" post?At any rate, you've made many ignorant remarks on this particular topic; you like to "crow" that you are a parent, yet you tripped yourself up by having originally stated that it's okay to spank a 6 month old baby in order to teach them a lesson and to teach them not to be rude.
That is what you have been claiming all along and as recently as this morning:
[QUOTE] Post #620217:
"RR- you stated that it's okay to spank a 6 month old baby if they are interrupting Mommy and Daddy's quiet dinner by crying for no discernible reason- other than your interpretation that they are being "manipulative".
So if you never spanked a 6 month old baby for crying, just why DID you spank a 6 month old baby?"
"I've never had to do that, it was an example.
But in that example, spamming (sic) the kid wasn't about his crying, it was about teaching a lesson and to learn how to not be rude."
And I know you meant "spanking" and not "spamming".
So you most certainly did say "how not to be rude" yet in this post to which I am responding you NOW say "No, you don't literally teach a baby how not to be rude. They have no concept of it."
So you really don't know WHAT the hell you're saying in your desperate and pathetic attempt to try and justify spanking a 6 month old baby.
And if spanking them isn't about their crying, what "lesson" would the baby need to be taught and how does spanking them teach them ANY lesson and all the more when no lesson to be learned exists if spanking them isn't about their crying???
I stand behind what I posted. It's never too early to start training your child.
Oh, well you're a rainbow.You're a TRAIN WRECK, RR!
I will.But do keep insisting that spanking a 6 month old BABY is perfectly acceptable, normal, natural and even the right thing to do.
Yale is a blog?And keeping posting your moronic links- many of which were simply blogs- to defend your very warped and perverse position which speaks of anything BUT good parenting skills.
I don't care - I ain't keeping score like you are. Post all you want.And yeah- I already KNOW I am on here today much more than I said I would be or planned to be- but plans change so due to a delay in my plans, I have some time to kill.
