Anybody ever seen the movie "sherrybaby" with Maggie Gylenhal? There's a scene where she's waiting with her daughter to use the restroom and a woman behind her is yelling at her kid and grabbing his arm really hard, and maggie's character grabs the woman by the hair and lays into her, it's awesome and I felt like doing it on monday, but I didn't because then I would probably go to jail and have my own kid taken away.
I've seen this over and over again while I'm at my local WIC office-mom's swearing and hitting their kids, I can't believe they'd do it in a govt. office but it doesn't phase them a bit-I've actually told them to stop before and then they just swear at me sara

Are the books enough, or do you need the classes too?

This makes me so sad. I've seen it happen way too many times. I can't imagine treating my child or any child that way.

The gov't offices seem to be worse than anywhere. My friend is a social worker at the welfare dept. Some of the stories she tells me are crazy.

I think the classes are offered ALOT of different places...like my local hospital offers a class, Parents as Teachers, churches. I know that there would be benefit from just buying the book and reading it, but I am sure that the experience of a class, and talking to other parents going through the same thing etc, would have a huge impact.

I'm just not sure if they offer these classes in Canada. I actually seriously considered taking an anger management class, but I don't know of any in my area either

Re: I hate mommy wars just as much as the next guy...

I have to admit though.. I have had my bad days.. never where I am hitting anyone. I have had days when everyone is driving me nuts such as dropping things out of the cart as I shop or hiding, or arguing with each other and I have said, "If you act like this i will leave you guys home with daddy." or "Next time I am shopping alone" then, I feel bad about it I wonder if someone overhears me and if they think of what a jerk I am for saying that!

That is really sick! & saddens me. I understand boundries at that young of an age, but children are just that children. They were given to us to teach & guide them. That really is sad! Hold your children close!

I like it when the kids are cussing mom out telling her what to do...classic!

I've said this over and over, some people shouldn't make people.
