"Even thought are cute, tiny, helpless infants it doesn’t change that they are born sinners."
"Yeah,so? I’m not going to leave them alone to cry because they’re sinners. I’m a sinner and I wouldn’t like to be left alone to cry when I need something,am hurt or need help. My infant isn’t any different. Not to mention they don’t actually understand manipulating or have the capacity to manipulate someone for any reason until about a year old."
"And I as well am not saying put them in the crib and NEVER go back in. There are methods to letting them CIO. No parenting method is perfect and all kids are different. They are born sinners and they are manipulative and they do need to be trained. We are their parents not their friends. There should be a healthy amount if fear towards us as parents just as we fear The Lord."
"Babies never want to just cry. You gotta remember they spent 40 weeks closer to you than anyone else. You can’t just expect them to let go of you that easily. At times they just want/need to be close to you. And who are we to deny them of one of their most basic instincts? And actually it’s bad for newborns to cry for too long. Trust me,we’re being parents not friends. But we’re also not being bullies.And no studies of the brain show infants can’t comprehend manipulation"
