Is Potty Training In 3 Days a Scam

Your written piece demonstrates that you’re particularly well written and able to
write attention-catching writing. Would you write for others?

Let me hire you on your work (hourly, per piece of writing, .etc).

That child should be making lunch for his mother. If you still need to breastfeed a child at that age, I think there is a problem. He should be out kicking a football or playing baseball or something sport wise that he can get his head around. Bit too “mother earth” for me.

It’s not the fact that she was breastfeeding… it’s that fact that the kid should have been done breastfeeding at least 2 years ago – gross!!!!

Once a baby starts getting teeth in their mouths, it’s time to cut off the breastfeeding. She is not doing the baby any good by continuing to breastfeed at the age of 4. He needs to grow up and drink milk from a cup. Actually study shows that the earlier the child starts drinking from a cup and eating proper food the better they develop. She is not helping her child by babying him, and it is not proper. We are not animals to having our pups hang off our breasts all the time. Even dogs know when to cut off their babies and they are not supposed to be as smart as humans. Mayim is only breastfeeding her son for herself. She doesn’t want her son to grow up and she needs to grow herself. Actually she really is quite stupid and she is showing it.

To those who say it’s normal it’s not the kid is 4 years old can walk and talk and has teeth he’s old enough to say boobs it’s gross theirs the real issue and FYI what separates having your boobs out in public and indecent exposure and breast feeding is the cover nobody cares if you feed your child in public just be respectful to other people and cover your boobs

It is not sexual, rather it is inconsiderate to others who prefer not to see this activity.

I would prefer not to see someone eating with their mouth open when I’m at a restaurant. Would it be expectable for me to ask that person to cover up or go to the bathroom to eat?
I think it’s inconsiderate for a mother of sacrifice their child’s comfort for people who prefer not to see that kind of activity.

She may be educated, but she is not very smart or considerate.

I think it likely that she is lonely….she is probably the sort of person that would put up with the abuse, the perve or whatever, just as long as it is attention. I think that is the situation for a lot of mothers that breastfeed in public. It’s all about them, mother earth, look at me I’ve just found this novel way of feeding my baby and nobody else has ever done it. Shortly after the child is weaned, they will probably be suffering from malnutrition because the mother won’t have any intention of being trapped in a kitchen and actually cooking nutritious meals for the kid….much prefer sitting on her bum in the shopping mall believing that everyone thinks she is “mother marvellous”. I think breastfeeding is a good start for an/all babies but nobody wants to share the joy with the mother, most people are totally bored with it, including your husband and older children if you have them. Usually the only people that are going to give you any “credit” for the whole deal with be teenage boys and old men pretending to be “interested” in your new found art.
Go home and clean the house.

Exactly, this is the 21st century. People should be more educated and not be disgusted by a women FEEDING her child. She isn’t trying to prove anything. All they’re doing is giving their child food.
I doesn’t matter if some men like to masturbate to it. Some men masturbate to hands. Are you going to start covering you hands because there could be someone around you who is turned on by hands?

It’s how it’s performed. Respect for others should always be carried out. That’s the issue.

That’s ridiculous. You would NEVER ask a bottle feeding mother to cover up. There should be RESPECT for the women who choose to breastfeed and choose not to use a cover. Some babies hate being covered. Should a mother make her child uncomfortable so everyone else can feel comfortable?
How about you do this. Buy a nursing cover and put it over your head while you eat. Lets see how comfortable you would be.

Dude, wake up…this is NOT a baby she is feeding. It’s like a 3 foot tall kid. At that age, chldren should be eating on a schedule, period. Unless that dumb chick was riding the subway for 4-8 hours, she could have planned it out better. It was nothing short of inconsiderate.
