How to Stop 3-Year-Olds From Begging | POPSUGAR Moms

It’s remarkable how much I knew about parenting before I had kids.

Placing my stack of Lean Cuisines on the grocery store conveyor belt I’d watch as moms and dads held up the line, desperately negotiating with their toddler over a candy bar or a pack of gum.

“Jeez — grow a pair,” I’d think as I watched them bargain their way right into their child’s sticky little palm. This 20,000-foot view offered me a pathetic picture of what little power some parents had over their children.

Then I became the parent of a 3-year-old and reality exposed itself to me like a mustached man in a pick up truck. We’re tired. We’re poor. We’re huddled masses yearning to breathe free. We would sell our souls for five minutes of peace, however, nobody tells us that cutting

Cyber-Bullying Fighter Melania Trump Fully Supports Donald Tweeting About Mika Brzezinski’s ‘Low IQ’ & ‘Bleeding …

no title

Y’all need any more evidence Melania Trump is 100% in Donald Trump‘s corner??

People sometimes paint the President’s third wife as some kind of princess being held prisoner by an ogre, but it’s situations like this where her true dark colors shine through.

VOTE: Do You Hate Melania As Much As Dan Savage Does??

When asked about Trump’s disgusting tweets about Morning Joe pundit Mika Brzezinski, the FLOTUS took a break from her hard work fighting cyber-bullying to release a statement in support of her hubby.

Melania’s spokeswoman responded:

“When her husband gets attacked, he will punch back 10 times harder.”

Right. What presidents call a “proportional response…”

Punching back “10 times harder” is one of those things meant to sound badass — unless you take 5 seconds to think about it.

We mean, if your frenemy mentions you falling

How Congresswoman Katherine Clark Is Fighting Back Against Online Harassment Toward Women

Early Thursday morning Donald Trump fired off a series of tweets attacking Morning Joe cohost Mika Brzezinski, and in typical Trump fashion, his barbs focused on one thing: Brzezinski’s physical appearance.

To millions across the country, it was just one of many, many instances in which the President of the United States hid behind social media to harass a woman he disagreed with. To Congresswoman Katherine Clark, it was a disgraceful instance of cyberbullying coming straight out of the White House.

“When the President uses his Twitter account to make comments like he did—and this is certainly not the first time that he has done this—he not
