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:
"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?"
"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."
"If a breastfeeding mom isn’t dressed warm in the winter and she catches a cold her breast milk will spoil"
"I would just let the baby sleep in my bed..."
"You can never spoil or hold a baby too much!"
