My Embarrassing Admission as a Doctor: My Son Has a Terrible Diet

My Embarrassing Admission as a Doctor: My Son Has a Terrible Diet

Commented Apr 13, 2012 at 02:02:03 in Parents

“Ok Bob. This lady said she's "embarrassed" about how her son is eating. I don't know why all you parents are fighting me when I point out this is not good parenting. I think what I'm saying hits a chord with those who have responded. I really have no personal stake in this, but something is going wrong with American children, and if you haven't figured that out, just look at the statistics. Parents spend no time with their children and try to make up for it by letting the child be the parent. That's fine. Really, I have my own life, and these are not my children. I am not condescending to anyone, and it's likely I might face this type of situation when/if I have children. I just expressed that I think it's pretty sad, and that's not going to change. Thanks for the comments.”

“Laugh out loud! O.M.G. "a child-less person"? What is that? You think that only people like you, with-child, can respond to something like this article? So if this was an article about a mom feeding her child in a dark basement and never letting them out, I can't comment? I surely can. This isn't your article. I'm not giving advice. But it disturbs me (a childless person) that this mom is being a bad mom. I don't need a child of my own to realize that. If you're offended by what I'm saying, maybe you should listen clearly. And don't say something as ignorant as "childless person". Many people can't conceive children and that would be horrible if you thought they couldn't comment on these articles and tell right from wrong. Go write your own article in a parent's only forum and stop trying to suppress different perspectives.”

“So perhaps, it is you who needs to listen. :)”

“I didn't say you couldn't respond. I just find it humorous when a person who has no children feel qualified to make assumptions and give advice on something you have no experience with. You are really trippin'. Lol”

“Child Protective Services (CPS) likely wouldn't agree with you, Bob. Getting children to eat balanced meals isn't new business. People have been doing it for thousands of years. If anything, she can teach her child that it is wrong to lie. This seems like a perfect opportunity to teach right from wrong. For instance, she could say that saying cheese causes a headache is a lie because it is impossible for cheese to cause headaches. If you lie, people will never trust you and that's the most important thing in the world. She can turn it into a lesson. Wow! A parent teaching a child a lesson! Think about that. Also, no one said that children were to be FORCE-fed. I know it sounds far reaching, but parents can actually negotiate with children. I've seen it done. You eat these peas and I will take you to the movies Saturday. Or, you don't eat the peas and you don't get anything else. Peas are good for you. They will make you strong.”

“1- Kid slie all the time and they grow up to be responsible adults. 2- Dont be ridiculous- CPS does not take children away because they don't eat balanced meals. They take children away if they show signs of malnourishment. 3- re PEAS- just because things have been done doesn;t mean they can always be done.”

“I'm a young law student so I don't have children. This is neither rocket science nor is it a forum for parents.”

“I am a parent, and I absolutely applaud any "childless" person who has some ideals for how they will behave as a parent. I never planned to feed my kids a bunch of crap, and I never did. Most of the things I imagined as a perfect ideal before I was a parent, I still have as the ideal. I'm far from perfect, but at least I'm always trying my best. Don't let the haters bring you down. I'll bet you'll be a great parent some day! I think this doctor is terribly irresponsible because she is tacitly stating that it's okay to give up on these ideals.”

“You don't have children. Lol! I love when a childless person gives parenting advice.”

“You are spoiling your kid. I have great parents and they made me eat whatever was served. If I didn't eat it I would keep getting it. Diet is very important and it's a parent's job to step up and be a parent. This story is actually really sad. To think that a kindergartener is telling his parents what he can eat? Really? Please get this kid back on track: it's your job.”

“You mention what your parents did to you but I'd be interested in hearing what you did with your children?”

“You can't FORCE a child to eat certain things. She is doing fine by my book.”
