my neighbour and i have 2 ds at 10-11 months. be both have completely differenting parenting styles..to put it mildly, this morning she came in with ds and screams at him when he does something wrong rather than going ang getting him and giving him something else to play with. after about 30mins or so, her screaming really freaked out my ds and he was inconsoleable, i told her that if she wanted to scream at her child could she please go and to it in her own house. my dp and i dont carry on like that and my ds doesnt like it when adults raise their voice.
AMBU?

No YANBU - I only wish I was brave enough to say the same thing to my friend when she screams at her kids in my house.

No YANBU! Its your house - your rules and TBH sounds like your neigbour was BVU. Screaming at a 10-11 month old wont get you far in my experience. You did well to stand your ground - lots of people would have just let her get on with it then called her everyname under the sun after she left

Kelix thats exactly what i thought, she screams at him so much he doesnt even flinch now, which in my opinion can only be a bad thing. such lazy parenting i think! dont get me wrong im no perfect parent i've made mistakes and there are some days that i feel like i could run away, but i would never carry on like that with my ds.
