I overheard a couple who seemed to be dating while I was in line for the store yesterday, and they were talking about, what seemed like, another couple and their bad parenting advice.
As a parent, what's the worst advice you have ever been given. Here's what some couple's said:
  • 1

    "Smack your child's gums with a spoon so I could tell if she's teething. I guess you’d hear a click if there are teeth under the gums?"

  • 2

    "Give your newborn water when he wakes up in the middle of the night so that he will learn that it wasn't worthwhile to wake up."

  • 3

    "If a breastfeeding mom isn’t dressed warm in the winter and she catches a cold her breast milk will spoil"

  • 4

    "I would just let the baby sleep in my bed..."

  • 5

    "You can never spoil or hold a baby too much!"
