You mean you don't make your own yogurt and give them commercial crap instead? Bad daddy

Expecting parents,

Don't use the phrase "We're pregnant." She's pregnant.

But how else will people know that our child was not illegitimately conceived and that I am no cuckold?

Nice one! Totally hilarious. Imagine the total fucking mess your kid would be if he was still nursing at age 4. Decades of therapy couldn't fix that. Neural development? Bwah ha ha ha ha....

They're doing well. Spend their days doing typical satanic toddler stuff like set non-mongoloid babies on fire and spinning their head like a dreidel. Nothing special.

I'm not going to dignify the BS on the previous page with a quote, but it reminded me of a question I've thought about as I prepare for my kid:

How do those of you who are fathers deal with all of the unsolicited advice? Likewise, what do you do when people get sanctimonious about the way you're raising your kid?

I haven't encountered this too much yet, but the impression I get from friends who have kids is that I will. What do you guys say/do when this happens? I have to imagine a fair bit of it is complete crap and quite annoying.

I have yet to encounter this kind of behavior IRL. Yes, people like to give a lot of advice, but generally they try to be helpful and friendly. I would probably simply ignore it, maybe walk away, if I was faced with an annoying barrage of unsolicited and sanctimonious advice.

Thanks Teacher!

I've gotten this once in a blue moon. Usually I just nod curtly, hoping they get the idea that their advice is unwelcomed. Only once have I had to politely tell a woman (and it's almost always a woman) that my children are healthy, curious, intelligent, and teachers and peers really like them, so I must be doing something right. It got her to shut up.

By the way, I draw a pretty distinct line between suggestions, which are great, and sanctimonious advice.

I was joking about my not knowing. I've contributed on this thread before. Obviously, my advice meant little to you.
