You keep throwing it out there, Suzanne, that somehow Peach "doesn't
know her child."
I do? That's news to me! I'd ask for a quote, but since there is none, I
can only say I find it interesting that this is where you would
automatically take my repeating of your own words.
While you may not have said those exact words, you certainly did imply
that Peach did not understand her daughter and were rather demeaning
in your response to her about child rearing. Here is an example:

I am sorry child care confuses you so much, But then, you were the one who
said it wasn't possible to know what a tantrum is about, so I guess this
explains why you don't understand there are many different ways of dealing
with tantrums according to the situation...
Let me simplify this for you. A wise parent reacts to a tantrum in the way
that is most fitting for that particular tantrum. If the child is cranky
due to hunger or tiredness or something else he cannot control, then
REMOVING THE CHILD to a quiet place for comport is appropriate. if, on the
other hand, the tantrum is about not wanting to be there at all, then
removing the child is giving in to him.
Do you understand it yet, or will I have to draw a picture?
Very, very interesting.
I think your out-of-the-blue assessment says way more about your feelings
about yourself than about me. I have always suspected that you feel
somewhat inferior to and/or threatened by me in the parenting department,
and your ongoing antagonism in this thread, your constant contradictions,
and now your sudden assertion that I am saying you don't know your child
(despite my never having said this) reveal that this is something that
bothers you deep down.
I am sure that Peach is quite envious of your parenting "skills".
After all, you decided that since you know more than pediatricians
about your children that you did not need to regularly see one. And
you failed to understand the significance of developmental delays
resulting in delay of diagnosis. Then you blame the doctors for the
One of the most important parenting skills is to protect one's child
against dangers. One big danger is pertussis. The vaccine is safe and
effective. You chose to not vaccinated because "my whole family got
pertussis and it was no big deal".

Therefore, I will not do anything to make you feel
bad about your parenting skills any more.
Suzanne often criticizes others for their bad parenting which may
reflect insecurity about her own parenting skills. But I won't do
anything to make her feel worse about her parenting skills:-)
