Caught in the Crossfire of Parenting Styles 🎯

Our protagonist is stuck in a tricky situation. Her sister's unique parenting style, while seemingly effective for her, has some concerning side effects that she can't ignore. When the sister starts dispensing her 'superior' advice to other family members, our protagonist steps in to share the less glamorous side of the story, sparking a family feud. Accusations of mom-shaming and laziness fly, and yet, the expecting family members continue to follow the controversial advice. Amidst all this, our protagonist's main worry is for her nephew's development, as his mother seems to be ignoring crucial advice from doctors. Let's see what the internet has to say about this tangled web of family drama and parenting dilemmas... 🕸️

"NTA I think he's delayed BECAUSE of her parenting techniques. No 3 year old should still be using a binky, breastfeeding, diapers, being carried everywhere like an infant. Crying for hours because she isn't around. It's not good for children to be like that and unfortunately he might develop anxiety disorder from his attachment issues. Because of her 'child led parenting' her child is literally being delayed in his milestones. When he grows up with fked up teeth and needs braces she won't think that binky was smart anymore. Also it seems like she thrives with the idea her child will always be like this, She might be the one with attachment issue & turning her child into someone who will always need her. Not good for her or the child. Please don't let your sister and cousin make the same mistakes." 😲

"YTA Mostly because the kids developmental delays you suggest are not caused by crib nor pacifiers. If he was developing normally, she would not wear him, because normally developing kid don't want to be worn. As in, her wearing him still is more likely to be result of his delays then the opposite. The fact that you mix in complains that really cant delay the kid and dont tell what kind of delays he has makes me doubt your judgement regarding of which is cause of which. If you want to show concern, you need to show more interest in actual kids issues and how it changes things before complaining about what parent does. You don't do that at all. Some delayed kids wont be potty trained even in their lives or it takes significant amount of effort. Some kids never learn to walk and are worn/strolled until they move into wheelchair. Or they learn that as significant victory at age of 13. I dont think he is that far away, but you omitted all those details in order to get validation here." "He can walk fine (trust me, kid can run a marathon when he doesnt want to go home) but he's very clingy and likes to be with her all the time. Especially if she's giving anyone else attention. I'm not saying he is or isnt delayed; I'm saying she's jot helping him by keeping him infantile. As a parent with a child with disabilities, you want to help them so they can develop as much as possible. She is refusing to help him."
