Binky Brats



What is the first thing you think of when you see and older kid, aged 3 or older, walking around with a pacifier in his/her mouth? What about a blanket? Well, it gets on my nerves. These children are normally misbehaved, and lack discipline. The parents are to blame for these bratty kids. Having three kids of my own, I know all about the binkies and what not. I know how difficult it can be to wean these kids off of their security items,but I would say that it is normally more the parents not wanting to deal with a crying child, than the separation of the child and pacifier.

You have said a mouthful! (no pun intended) I totally agree with you. Working at a tourist attraction, I see many children walking around (not only babies and toddlers) with blankets or pacifiers. It unnerves me so much I can't stand it! Then, if the kid, God forbid, loses the thing, everyone is expected to come to a screeching halt to be on the lookout ... and guess what? It's not usually the kid who is most upset, it's the assinine parent! Excellent post topic.

I stumbled across this post and had to comment. I had my security item until kindergarten or so and while I don't think it's ideal for kids to have these items when they're older, who gets to decide when is the RIGHT age to stop. Kids mature and develop at different rates and what's right for one might not be for another. So I strongly disagree that we should be taking away the bottles, blnkies etc on a 1st or 3rd birthday and at least try to let these things happen naturally. That said, I think by the time they start school, kids should be able to do without these things.

actually, i have an exception to that rule. but so does everyone else. I was a quiet but very insecure child, and i was about 3 before i could go anywhere without my blanky. but i spent half a year in a hospital and most of the remaining months in and out of clinics and doctor's offices, so the feel and scent of something that was familiar comforted me. Yet if i was separated from my blanky, i would not get into a fit or scream Bloody murder, I would just sit down wherever i was and refuse to move. I was that insecure. I think I still have that ratty old thing, too! You are mostly (if not 99.9999999999999999%) correct in your observations, but there are exceptions. Just putting in my two cents in.
