Mom Confession: I Chucked My Daughter's Barbie Dolls and Lied About It

crushed barbie dollIt's time for a Mom Confession -- because, let's face it, we're real mothers and sometimes it doesn't work the way the parenting books say it should.

This Week's Confession

"I hate Barbie and I vowed my 4-year-old would never have one. But she's been obsessed with Barbie for a while. I told all of our friends and family that she was not allowed to have one. But when her dad took her on a trip to visit his family, her aunt gave her not one, but three Barbies. I was so mad -- it's not a 'role model' I want for my child. So one night when she was sleeping, I threw them all out. When she was looking for them the next day, I told her I had no idea where they were."   -- Anonymous
