I posted a day or two ago about the Sex Ed book I bought for Buddy called What's The Big Secret? . I had purchased the book several months ago, but the Evil Twin and I were both a little hesitant to hand it over.
After we finally gathered up the courage, I - of course! - went back online to find a link to it so I could write about the great find on my blog here.
In looking over the relevant info on the page, I had somehow not really paid much attention to the "ratings" given by other buyers of the book the first or even second time I visited the page. By the time I searched for the link, I had a bit of extra time to give the reviews a cursory glance.
Some wack-a-do posted her (I'm assuming it's a mom) opinion on the book:
"By A Customer
While this book is colorful and covers many common questions, it is not for attachment parents - or any parent who wants to teach her child a more natural parenting approach.
It does have one breastfeeding picture, but it also includes pictures of baby bottles and a baby bottle-feeding, newborns in a hospital nursery, a hospital birth with the mom lying on her back (which is very difficult and can lead to unnecessary Caesareans), and a newborn crying (which is not really natural, and rarely happens in a waterbirth), and a bit of rudeness (a child calling another child "silly").
The book also states that puberty can start at "ten or twelve or fourteen" but many children are starting earlier these days (possibly from the growth hormones in cow's milk, a good reason to switch to organic milk), and they may feel worried if they read that statement.
Two better books are Welcome With Love by Jenni Overend and A Child Is Born by Lennart Nilsson. "
HAAAAHAAAhahaha. Oh, Good Gracious! Like any kid would transfer the images in a book designed to impart sexual education information to their real life thoughts (i.e. merely SEEING an infant with a bottle in it's mouth or a woman laboring on her back that might lead to c-sections). What the fuckery? This woman is a full-fledged, card carrying MORON. She deserves to be pimp slapped or at least taken down a notch in some form.
God help us if a child feels "worried" that they may go thru puberty earlier or later than the book states! And let's not forget that all the growth hormones in milk may be causing that phenomenon.
I'd like to contact this mother and also let her know that President Bush has been transmitting thoughts to her head by space aliens who eat non-organic space lettuce. They are also meat eaters.
Our son slept in the same room with us until he was 10 months old and our daughter shared our bed until she was 5 months old. I pumped and bottle fed Buddy (out of necessity) and nursed Sissy. We don't let our kids cry it out. But, I have to draw a line somewhere and this review is about the most asinine thing I've EVER read - in all my years on the innernets.
I hate people.
