Top Wacky Parenting Methods

Top 5 wacky parenting methods according to Tammy Gold, parenting expert and founder of Gold Parent Coaching. 

1. Never saying the word "no" because, they don't want their child learning the word "no".
    According to Tammy Gold, you should save the word "no" for the big things.

2. Talking to your baby like a grown up.
    I have heard this a few times and it just drives me crazy. I don't think parents should talk to their child like
    an adult. They aren't adults and there are some things that just shouldn't be said to children.  It's too much
    for their little minds. In my opinion, it should be kept age appropriate.

3. Letting baby go diaper-free
    This is not a good idea for a lot of reasons. Mainly, it's just not physically healthy for them. A few
    moments maybe while your grabbing a diaper, but not for extended periods of time. It can cause health
    problems for little girls or possibly unnecessary injuries in those private places that could have been
    avoided by leaving their diaper on. Such as, your little princess falling on something and breaking her
    hymen or little man falling and hurting something.

4. Baby biting
   This one blows my mind. Why would you bite your infant? There are other ways to teach them not to bite.
   This is a good time to use the word "no".

5. Throwing a tantrum when your tot throws a tantrum. 
    Throwing a tantrum may only work temporarily, but your not solving the problem. Your running the risk of
    the problem getting worse, because it now becomes a game.
