1. No. Nothing can MAKE someone gay.



2. See answer to #1. I used to torture my brother with makeup and make him play dress up with me and he's definitely not gay.



3. I honestly have no idea, I've never met a child with a sensory disorder.



4. It depends on the mother's preferences. I showered with my mother until I was about three or four, I never showered with my father. My brother and I would go into the restroom (public restroom) with my mother up until about six years old.



5. Why would anyone call a child a b***h? That's clearly not okay.



6. Some children are more attached than others. It all depends on the child and the mother's parenting techniques.

1.) Can a boy going to the bathroom with their mother up until the ages of around 5 cause him to be gay? Definitely not.



2.) Can putting nail polish/dresses/etc on a boy when they want to join in with their mom and sister doing the same cause them to be gay? Definitely not.



3.) Do kids with sensory disorders cry a lot? Just answer yes or no with a short description of why. It really depends on the child. Each kid responds to sensory overload differently. My daughter cries or clings to me. Some other kids just back off and stay quiet. Some throw tantrums. It all depends.



4.) Is it normal for kids to use the restroom/shower with their mother? Yup.



5.) Is it okay to say things like "stop crying like a b***h" to a boy to try and make him tough? Absolutely not... :?



6.) Is it normal for a three year old boy to be attached to their mom? Or for that matter, a 5 year old girl? Absolutely. There's not an age limit on when a kid needs to "detach" from their parents and 3 and 5 year olds are still young.

Why make a thread to prove that you aren't the only one who views things a certain way? Why do you can so much what this person thinks?

1. No
2. No
3. Probably. I guess that would depend on the child and situation.
4. Yes
5. No
6. Yes, Yes



This is awful, OP. I hope you and the kids don't have to be around this person. :(

1) No
2) Meh maybe but I seriously doubt it. I put nail polish on my 4 year son once because he wanted to be like me and his cousin. Lol. Probably won't ever do it again though.
3) Idk honestly.
4) Restroom yes, shower not IMO unless they are REALLY young still.
5)No never okay in any situation.
6) Depends on the kind of attachment you are talking about. I think every child at that age is attached in some way to their mother and it's pretty normal.

some of these seem pretty straight forward, here are my beleifs:




1.) Can a boy going to the bathroom with their mother up until the ages of around 5 cause him to be gay? lol no



2.) Can putting nail polish/dresses/etc on a boy when they want to join in with their mom and sister doing the same cause them to be gay? no. but i think sometimes gay/transexual males may show more of an interest in these "girl" things at a young age, but the correlation does not indicate cause, nor that all boys that do this will be gay/transsexual



3.) Do kids with sensory disorders cry a lot? Just answer yes or no with a short description of why.i dont know any...cant say from experience but all kids do.



4.) Is it normal for kids to use the restroom/shower with their mother? i hope so. commonly debated at work by people who aren't parents thinking im traumatizing my child.



5.) Is it okay to say things like "stop crying like a b***h" to a boy to try and make him tough? not sure why this is a serious question....



6.) Is it normal for a three year old boy to be attached to their mom? Or for that matter, a 5 year old girl? i would hope my 3 year old were attached to me. i would think there was more of an issue if he wasnt. a five year old girl i would def expect to have more independence but i wouldnt think it were odd to be clingy or whatever....

Maybe its to show that particular parent that dome things really are not okay, like telling them to stop acting like a b***h.

6.) Is it normal for a three year old boy to be attached to their mom? Or for that matter, a 5 year old girl? I think a small level of attachment is okay, but I've seen some over the top attachmement scenarios that hinder on the mom's happiness and the child's independence.

I'm guessing if she's having the person read this, she doesn't want to be trash talking them.

Frankly, it's a debate with a friend of mine who parent's his child completely different than I do. He doesn't understand my boundaries and why he thinks any of the above i have no idea.
