  • Crap non-primal parents say that make you want to slap them...

    "When this littke sh*t starts to teeth, I'm drugging the HELL out if him without question.'

    "Be quiet for one more inning and I'll feed you spaghetti and ice cream until you puke, promise!"

    Ah, baseball games.

    Now you try!
    "The cling and a clang is the metal in my head when I walk. I hear a sort of, this tinging noise - cling clang. The cling clang. So many things happen while walking. The metal in my head clangs and clings as I walk - freaks my balance out. So the natural thought is just clogged up. Totally clogged up. So we need to unplug these dams, and make the the natural flow... It sort of freaks me out. We need to unplug the dams. You cannot stop the natural flow of thought with a cling and a clang..."

    Hmm...the other day a young lady walked through our backyard over to the choke-and-puke down the road, on her way back I ask how she's doing today. She responds, a little out of breath, smoking a cigarette, texting on her phone, "Not too good, I had to go pick up cigarettes and that dog started chasing me and I'm pregnant."
    If I just said LOL, I lied. Do or do not. There is no try.

      I cackle when i drug my kid with homeopathic stuff... does that make me non primal? LOL

      The sadist in me enjoys being a mean mom. The kind that will pin her kid down just to lick the side of their head for kicks and giggles cuz they hate it.

        "You'll eat your french fries or you can't have your apple!" (overheard that one several years ago walking by a McD's)
        "You can't eat grains? Well, you'll waste away and die because humans can't survive without grains." My mother when I started primal.
        "At least eat the cookie," Sister In Law cajoling Niece into eating and failing miserably
        Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

          I don't interact much with children, but my pet peeve is people who bring their children to places with casual outdoor seating and then ignore their kids while they yell and play and run around and run into all the patrons and bump into your chair and come over and stare at you and only when one of them actually touches you or falls down and starts to cry do the parents say anything, and for some of the worst ones, it takes several bouts of empty threats to their kids before they actually will get up and do something. I really hate that. I prefer people's dogs coming over and putting their slobbery noses on my lap to these feral restaurant kids and their clueless parents.

            Some people just keep telling us that we need carbs and/or more carbs and that being primal/paleo indefinitely is unhealthy.

            THe person who tells me this is hilarious. She works out 2 hrs per day Mon-Fri. She does body pump followed by zumba. She eats a healthy diet (with grains, though), all year.

            Every spring, she does master cleanse, followed by a juice fast in order to loose weight, toxins, etc. And she reaches her goal. Then by summer, she goes back to her usual diet (heavy in grains), and then gains about the 10 or so lbs. Then in the fall, she does a stint of "grain free!" for 30 days and looses the 10 lbs, and then goes back to normal and gains it back in about 6 weeks and complains that it's because she's getting older.

            When I told her we were going grain free, she kept saying "but you need carbs! but you need carbs!" and I kept explaining "but carbs are in fruit and veggies, and we eat plenty of fruit and veggies." But she said "no, CARBS!" and I'm like, ok, i'm not arguing anymore.

            She's all excited because "i start master cleanse next week! I'm going to loose that 10 lbs!" And my head said "until December." LOL

              We know a couple that have 2 little ones under 5. We've been seeing them quite a bit over the summer and the only meat I ever see them eat is hotdogs and they are always eating some kind of chips, usually Cheetos. Anyway, the father was telling me that they had to switch to real cheetos (from generic) because their kids poop was turnig neon green. I'm sure the neon was an exageration but still.

                oh, and a friend of mine's son is on the autism spectrum, and I sent her some information (since she asked for people to send information that they had) about autism and diet. It was very good information, had some science to back it, etc. I also sent her information about autism and toys/overstimulation in the environment.

                months later, house and diet are still the same. standard american, too much crap house; standard american, too much crap diet. kid is improving in some areas, but not in others.

                at our house -- low stimulation -- the kid can play, focus, and connect for *hours*. at care or at his house, he's one freak out after another (every 25 minutes like clock work). clear sign of overstimulation.

                but, not my kid.

                and fwiw, my kid isn't on the spectrum at all, but considering his personality type and how he views the world, low stimulation is *vital* to his overall well being. when he gets overstimulated, it's anxiety producing for him, which makes him scratchy. We also notice that sugar and wheat have a negative affect on him -- if he's going to have some, he has to wear himself out before we go back into the house or he'll go haywire.

                i can only imagine what this crap does to kids who have special needs.

                    Well I *do* have children, and there is never a time when that is OK. Its even worse when its INSIDE a restaurant. People think because a restaurant hands out kids menus and crayons that they can treat it like the PlayPlace at McDonalds. I think they are missing the point that the crayons are to make the kids sit down and do something quiet.

                      Last time I visited my friend she fed her kid "chicken" nuggets and Mac and cheese for dinner. And followed it with ice cream! Which I guess wouldn't be that bad, but she told me that its "all she will eat", so I take it that this is a pretty regular dinner. My neighbor buys soy-sage, fake hot dogs, and a bunch of other meatless crap to feed to her kid. The sad part is that she isn't even a vegetarian! She thinks that as far as convenience foods go these options are healthier.

                        Well thank you for being a good parent! I feel terrible when I have to tell someone to come get their kid so it will leave me alone. I do it, but I feel terrible.

                          My son is social, but we taught him these boundaries early. When he was a baby-baby (crawling and early walker), we'd let him range a bit in a restaurant *if* there weren't a lot of people around AND we would ask them "do you mind if he crawls around? he might come up to you." Most people were very cool about it.

                          When he turned 2, though, we started hard-core on public manners. Most of it was through mirroring (I would behave myself, he would behave like me), and by the time he was 3, he has restaurants, theaters, and museums down pat. He doesn't run around, he doesn't yell, and he might say hello to others and be friendly (ie, invite their children over to the play area, or bring a toy to their baby, or bring them a magazine or newspaper), all of which is socially OK here without permission. It's also just nice.

                          He knows that there are strict rules in restaurants, and if you don't follow them we leave immediately. There is one warning "if you do not behave like a gentleman, we will leave." This is *before* we enter the restaurant. And, only on days when he's particularly fractious (which we usually avoid restaurants during these days anyway). And, he knows we follow through. I am *strict*.

                          It's annoying when kids run amok. I watched my cousins do that growing up, and I'd never been more embarrassed. So, I do differently.

                            I work in a restaurant and it makes me sick to watch parents order their kids -- really, really young kids -- soda after soda. And then feed them chicken fingers, mac n cheese, fries, ice cream. It's the soda, though, that really gets to me. Oh, and most of the time, each kid is watching videos his own private iPad or whatever while the parents are lost in their phones. You should have to be over the age of 18 to be able to purchase soda, like cigarettes. That would never work, though.

                              That would be my boyfriend's grandkids. Neither of us raised our kids that way, but his son's wife just lets them run wild. They're actually really good in a restaurant, but any place else and they're running and screaming the whole time. I can only handle it for a very short time (it's freaking EMBARASSING!) and then I don't care who gets offended, those kids are going to behave. I just take over.
                              Durp.
