Today, a crying kid was brought to my attention by a customer. He was so upset from losing his mom that he couldn't say his name or his moms name. I took him around the store asking him to point out his mom. Once we found her she told me "I was hiding from my kid to test his independence." FML

actually 1 I think this is was a good excersise for the kid (unless he was like 5) kids need to learn to not need there parents all the time or they'll end up like my sister who needs my parents for everything because she was never away from them.

but that's just me :/

Or he could just be clingy and psychotic.

My friend's brother and his wife have a two-year-old who throws a horrendous screaming, crying fit whenever his mother PUTS HIM DOWN after holding him. If she leaves the room he's in, he absolutely loses it and will cry and then fuss for HOURS. With kids like that, you really just have to cut the cord and teach them that they have to get the fuck over it, or else you're setting them up for a life of emotional codependence.

Lol what a great excuse.

"Oh, he died? What a fucking pussy. I through him out in the arctic tundra, and that little dumbass couldn't even make it home alive? I've raised a failure!

its a good thing to teach kids. i got seperated from my parents when i was like 4 or 5 and i knew what to do. i was crying but i went to the walmart service center and aSked tghem to find my mom for me. It builds charchter


27: Sounds to me like your friend's nephew has gone beyond the "setting up" stage. = It's natural for kids to go through a clingy phase, but that's... disturbing. I bet the mom has some dependence issues herself.

And this concludes this week's Amateur Internet Shrink Hour with your host, TIJD.

#27, STFU. Reactions like that are perfectly normal in infants. My nephew used to cry whenever his mother left the room, now he's a perfectly happy, bright little three year old.
OP, that momma seriously needs checking. Child services ought to teach her something.

85 you're Jersey, so your life automatically sucks.

By the way, "send me a message unless you're ugly, or a perv" is ironic to see in an ugly persons profile.

You know what's really ironic? Someone who isn't secure enough to post an actual picture of themselves as there avatar feels they can pass judgement on someone who does. Pick apart her spelling some more, that'll make you feel better.

id much rather see a child safe on a leash then out in the middle of a road.... not all children have been taught by their parents safety and parents resort to the leash....i find it easier to teach them though
