Not necessarily. I'm childless and had to confiscate kabob skewers my sister had given my 2 year old niece to play with. The child was running around with a handful of pointy sticks, and her mother got mad at me for taking them away from her.


OP didn't state what gender her infant is, you petty moron. Babies are obviously not items and Ramb0's choice of wording does not indicate how he views children. Stop trying to find reasons to attack people.

EVERYTHING can be dangerous for a baby if not properly supervised. Most things are pretty OK if supervised. Even a fork if you make sure to keep the sharp ends securely in your hand, away from the baby. At eight months old the baby probably loves to bite on hard items. At that age they are pretty much constantly toothing.

This sounds like something I would do, in sight of my sister, to make sure she feels I am bad for babies. Then again I don't watch people's children for them, family included. Watch your own kid OP

Short answer: no.

Long answer: I live about 300 miles from my sister and her child, so it wouldn't really be a thing.

I am not close with my sister and do not like her very much.

Wow you seem to be under the impression that just because you don't like kids that other people shouldn't let family members around their kids, do you not understand that other people have family members that like to hang out with their kids,

I hate possums. I think they're hideous. But if my sister had a pet possum, would I do something dangerous with it in her sight just to avoid pet sitting duties?

No because that's fucked up and I have a soul.

Ok so by your logic because you're not close with your sister then no one else should be either?? I get the feeling your not close with your sister because of you, considering you would give her child a sharp object just to keep her away from you. You don't seem like a very pleasant person. I don't like kids either and I don't want to watch my sister's kids either but I would never be that heartless.

You could use a little fear persuading to get your sister to listen. I remember reading about a young boy who fell out of a restaurant booth while holding a fork. It went up and out through his nose, but thankfully missed all the cartilage causing little blood.

There was something called a "spoon and pusher." Basically, it was a cutlery set that included a spoon and something that looked a little like a miniature hoe. Children too young for knives and forks would push their pre-cut food onto the spoon so they could eat politely without hurting themselves.

It was an honest question about history, so no need to be a sarcastic ass. I wouldn't think of giving a child a fork until they were older anyway. And by the way, I'm unable to have children for medical reasons so don't concerned yourself with my situation. Try not to be so judgemental of others. I sure you're not perfect either.
