Yes. We're touchy here, because it couldn't be you at fault eh?
Emotive topics tend to rouse emotions.
If someone comes onto a website and posts in their first post that they know they are posting on a controversial issue ought not be surprised when the topic is controversial to some.
I'm not sure why this is at all surprising?
Play nice, y'all
Is this a good time to mention that 'Simples' really rattles my cage?
God, i wish parenting were simples, or even simple, depending on whether one is a person or a meerkat... but it isn't is it? If it were, none of us would be members of this site sharing our worries and our woes, I'm betting most of us found this site because we had a question, not because we wanted to share an answer, although that is part of what this kind of forum does as well.
Yeah, cos I iz moderate and restrained and articulate, innit !
to be fair - I wouldn't see the harm in saying that she would win scootering races - because whilst it may not be on the cards at the moment, if she keeps it up and practices then she may well go on to win and there is nothing wrong with a little more encouragement to do better
I've found that my kids DO need the extra encouragement, the 'lies' as you see them - because thats how I encourage them to do better, to keep them interested in what they're doing. My DD loves drawing and could be an artist - she's far better than I could ever be, so it's my job to encourage her and make her believe that she has the ability to succeed and if that means saying - you're doing brilliantly, I love your artwork and think you could be the next Banksy then where's the harm? (and no she's not doing street graffiti lmao)
Making commenting like 'The thread seemed much better' is condescending. In whose opinion is it better, oh yours, so if it goes awry again will that make it 'bad'
