LOL...so do I. Just because it's something I couldn't imagine doing, it doesn't mean I won't have to eat crow if I say NO one would do it. I hate crow...the feathers get stuck between your teeth. I much prefer chicken!

People can call me over-protective, helicopter parent or whatever else they choose to call me, all that matters is that at the end of the day I can look into my childs face, kiss them and tell them goodnight.



there is just one word that needs to complete this perfect post.


Amen !!!

You must carry a big purse to have a full sized paddle brush with you at all times.

It would definitely be uncomfortable if a young girl had to use a restroom and she had to be accompanied by her dad. I can't imagine bringing a small girl into the men's room, and I can't imagine a man going into the lady's room to help the daughter. How do people deal with that?

I understand what you mean but for my case, my brother [8 years old, but looks about 10] has a medical condition that requires someone to help him with going to the restroom. I'm sure this isn't everybodys case but I'm just saying, there are some of us who have family members/sons who require this. Please do consider it...They really should put family restrooms at every public place just for people in these circumstances as well as for people who have an older child of the opposite sex that they don't feel comfortable leaving outside.

To each his own, but I think dragging a 15 year old boy into a womans restroom is asking for trouble..

One of my children is on the autism spectrum. I'm not sure when he'll be able to use the bathroom alone.
