tell me about it! kids aren't allowed to touch anything these days for fear of "germs" - how are they supposed to build up their immune systems!? i'm no slob, but i feel so bad when i see parents freaking out when their kid touches something like a floor - they won't die - i promise! they're just raising little germ-a-phobes! lol

Oh totally. We used to eat this plant, we called it "sourgrass" but they are these tall green stems that when you bite them they taste like sweet and sour candy. I think they are weeds, they grew on the side of houses and stuff...LOL

 

Anyway I remember clearly one day picking them to eat with my friend from next door. Her mom asked my grandfather "Do you think it's okay for them to eat those?" and my grandpa says "Sure, they aren't coming back up, are they?". Can you imagine most adults nowadays letting kids eat weeds as long as they aren't making them vomit? So funny.

i love it! my mom was so laid back too ... hopefully i can be like her, and my friend. i'm sure it won't be an issue. on the other hand, i have another friend that i KNOW will be paranoid about stuff like that. it will be interesting when the 3 of us get together and our kids are eating weeds or licking rocks, and hers are carrying around a bottle of hand sanitizer!

I hope I can be a parent like earlier generations (to some extent). I want my kids to be kids. I want them to fail and be disappointed so they can learn from it. I want them to have discipline (that will be easier said than done. hah. I am such a pushover)

My mom was very laid back too. I'm scared that I will be one of those paranoid moms!!! I'm trying to supress it, but I'm scared that when I have a kid that it will come spilling out! I don't wanna be chasing my kid with the hand sanitizer!!! Save me! LOL!!!

Thanks so much for the perspective in this thread. When I was a kid, I fell down, tasted grass, played with bugs, etc. and I'm perfectly fine!!! Thanks for the reality check!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
