"I wouldn't let my daughter become a One Direction groupie!"

What a killjoy. They're not like the other boy bands, dad, they're really talented.

I squashed my son's spirit because I made him pee in the toilet instead of the front yard.

LOL Those are funny!! One of my signs would derfinitely be the "I ruined my first child's life by having 2 more".  Another would be "I force my kids to pick up their own stuff".  I know!  I'm a terrible mother!  OH!  And "I make my kids carry their own backpacks to and from school".  Again!  I'm awful!  I guess my final one would be, "I laugh at my 2 year old's tantrums".  Sorry I can't help it.  Sometimes they're funny!

Not funny. I keep stating this on every article I read where a child was publically humiliated, we don't know all sides of the story. As parents, we sometimes forget that our children are actual people. Maybe we should be doing a little more talking to find the root cause of the problem instead of shaming.

For the record (again), I was one of the sign wearing ppl and I hate my parents for it. I didn't learn anything from it except that my parents don't listen to me and enjoyed shaming me in front of the world.

If any of my kids ever felt the need to request I wear a sign that expressed my parenting techniques, I'd be all for it!

The one that made me laugh was the mom who cheered at her son's soccer game, LOL! Priceless!

Mine would read, "I make my kids go to bed at bedtime."

what ever happened to parents are the parent. Why are they on the same level as their kids? I would never have corrected my mother's language!

who cares if

"I wouldn't let my daughter become a One Direction groupie!"

"I won't let my son eat pizza for breakfast."

"I poured a handle of Smirnoff down the drain. It was not mine to pour."

"I went to my son's soccer game ... and cheered!"

"I made my daughter stop texting at the dinner table"

"I ruined my first kid's life by having 2 more kids"
