I agree with that. There is a difference between child-free and childless. Yes, that will likely offend some, but choosing specifically not to have children generally does anyhow.

I agree... a lot of people tend to get them confused and think they are in the same boat as me because they don't yet have children, as opposed to not wanting/not gonna have kids at all.

Plus, I think for those who want but can't have children they wouldn't really consider themselves "child-free".

still doing bad...he comes out on his own some, but is still so scared of the other cats...if they just stand and look at him, it's often ok...but the second they make any movement he starts hissing/growling and runs back to our door and cries to be let back in the room. and then he cowers in the corner for a while.

Hey Mad, I need advice. I'm going to see my girl dx next month and I'm planning to ask on whether or not to have this fibroid removed. I want it gone. It's small enough to remove laprascopically. I am just in so much pain. (AF is a comin. )

I know that your procedure wasn't the same, but what should I look forward to afterward-wise? I just don't want to hurt anymore.

Ack i totally don't begrudge anyone the choice of not having kids...more power to ya! But I hope that the above was in jest because if not, yikes! As a parent this is about the scariest thing I could imagine one of my kids teachers, subs or otherwise, posting online! Hopefully no one can recognize you from your siggie! Just sayin...

I imagine that everyone, parent, teacher, etc. has had a point in their life/career that they have been so fed up by behavior that they would have that kind of thought or make such a comment. That would like include your children's teachers and caregivers.

I doubt it's a reflection of anything other than temporary frustration, and shouldn't be taken as "the scariest thing you can imagine."

Hmm maybe? But her picture is in her siggie...just saying it's not a great thing to advertise in jest or otherwise online! And yes it is about the scariest thing a parent could imagine an elementary teacher saying! Not trying to start something...it's just with the internet these days you just never know who reads what etc.

I would think that the scariest thing that you could imagine w/ respect to your children would be far worse that "not liking" a child who was behaving badly in a library. Just sayin'.

This may not be the thread for you.

Honestly, I can think of much scarier things. Now that I think about it, I've actually heard teachers say much scarier things. I know a lot of teachers and, believe it or not, they are actually human.

LOl that would be true if that was what I'd said, but what I said was that it was the scariest thing I could imagine an elementary school teacher saying! Big difference! And more then anything I am just saying that venting things like that online is not smart. People get fired for things they post on facebook! A forum like this is even worse because nothing is private! Common sense online is a must these days. I'm an author ( A childrens' book author no less) so I know how careful you have to be! I'm so careful on Facebook account that I sometimes have to delete my friends' comments because they can reflect on me, which could affect my career. Sad but true.
