Top 10 Things You Are Not Allowed To Do To My Kid

I’d be listing the usual, everyday thing that people usually do to other kids/babies that they think is okay but is actually NOT. And every time I tell people off for doing such to my kid, ako pa nagmumukhang maldita/suplada/atribida/feelingera/mapangmata. Eh hello?! Anak ko yan eh! Do you expect me to think of your feelings first before my child’s welfare? Hello!

Anyway, here they are…

10. Do not touch my baby! As in don’t. Especially if I don’t know you. A complete stranger is not supposed to touch any part of my kid. Mapangmata na kung mapangmata, but I don’t know you. Pano kung may kachichas ka? Mahahawa pa ang anak ko. And don’t ever tell me ang arte ko, because if that kid got bacteria from you, ako naman ang gagastos at mag aalaga. Not you.

9. Do not give my baby anything without asking my permission first! Yes. Please don’t. You’re not really sure if that baby has allergies or if the baby is allowed to eat/touch that. Some families have rules with regard to food or stuff. Plus, I am not sure if you are a kidnapper or a serial killer who wants to kill my baby. Praning na kung praning, but when it comes to my child, I want to be a hundred percent sure. If you want to give the baby anything, have some respect to the parents/guardian by asking their permission first. Hindi naman mahirap yun eh. And if they say no, don’t think of it negatively. Each parents have their own parenting style. It may sound absurd to you but if it works for the baby, then by all means they have the right to do that.

8. Do not allow your kid to touch my baby! This is a major headache for me. Some kids/toddlers, would touch Skye. Andun ang parents, hindi manlang sawayin! Yung iba, madumi ang hands and then would touch my baby’s hands or face. Eh hello! Sanggol yung akin. Others naman would kiss my baby on the face. Ako sinasaway ko ang bata. In a nice way of course. Like, “no baby don’t touch her coz she’s too small pa” or “no baby do not kiss her on the face, feet only”. Mga ganyan. But since andun naman ang parents/guardian, sana naman kayo na sumaway sa anak nyo! Coz I don’t wan’t to end up doing the next item.

7. Do not scold my kid, if she did something, tell me! I have my own way of disciplining the kid. Respect the parent by allowing her to discipline their kid. I hate it when people would shout at a kid just because may ginawang mali. I always see that here eh. Naiinis ako. If they anything, sawayin in a nice way then tell the parents.

6. Do not bully my child! Some people says/does things to kids without even realizing that it’s borderline bullying already. Like panunukso. Even if it’s just a joke, please no.

5. Do not shout when my kid is near! Especially if she’s sleeping. Some people are really either plain stupid or just inconsiderate. I mean, there’s a sleeping baby in a stroller. So why not keep your voice a little down? Okay lang yung minsan and hindi sinasadya. But those plain inconsiderate ones or simply taklesa, nakakaloka.

4. Do not pinch the baby! Okay. I know my little princes is a little of ball of cuteness but keep your gigil to yourself please! My baby would get hurt. And I never hurt my child so you have no right to hurt her. Kahit pa kurot-gigil lang yan. Pinch your own cheeks! Not my kid’s.

3. Do not kiss my baby on the face! I don’t care if we are friends or relatives. Do not kiss my baby on the face. Herpes is just one type of disease that can be passed by kissing. Flu, cough, colds, rashes – to name a few more. So please! It’s unhygienic. It’s not safe. And I am not happy.

2. Do not ever put laway on my baby as anti-usog! This is one pet-peeve. I mean, eeeeww!! Keep your laway to yourself. Come on! How kadiri is that? We have our own means to treat usog thank you very much. Your laway is not welcome to any part of my kid’s body. Kaloka!

1. Do not smoke near my child! This is a major no-no! I don’t care who you are, if you smoke near my child I’d tell you off. Second degree smoke is not allowed. Halos lahat ng sakit ng mga bata dahil sa sigarilyo – asthma, pneumonia, rashes, ear infection. Everything! You can google. You can ask your pedia. So to our dear smokers out there, please naman! If you want to burn your lungs, yung sayo na lang. Wag mo ng idamay ang anak ko.

smoking There you go. I hope people would read this and realize that I am not just maarte. I am just protecting my child. So please don’t get offended if you did one of those and I’d tell you off. Some mums kasi would prefer na tumahimik dahil nahihiya or nag aalala na baka ma-offend ang iba. Baka sabihan silang maarte what. But not me. Lagi akong nagpapagalit ng mga naninigarilyo na malapit sa anak ko. I would smile say no to friends ho would attempt na lawayan ang anak ko. Sasabihin ko kasi paano nila malalaman na hindi sya okay sayo? Some mums would opt to keep quiet. But not me. Though I hope people would be able to read this post and they’d realize that there are mums out there who are not okay with things you do to a baby.

i know how you feel I'm also a overprotective mommy kay RJ ko :)

rinabee said...

you can't be too safe with a baby talaga, and people shouldn't take offense if you choose to impose safeguards or rules. you are perfectly within your right to do so, except probably #5 - if you're in a public place like a mall or park, I guess you can't force people to quiet down, but of course it would be nice if they'd be more considerate!

SJ Valdez said...

It's okay for us moms to be overprotective when it comes to our children. It's not safe anymore to let others get close or touch our children. It's necessary to set boundaries. :)

maypalacpac said...

I did a double-take, I thought I wrote the list, hahaha!

But you know, even when my kids are no longer infants, I'm also wary of who touches them, kisses them or anything kasi minsan talaga, the other kid would be coughing or worse, nananakit.

Marie Angeli Laxa said...

Oh my gosh you're so maarte but I love it because I can relate to every single thing on your list! Especially the last two, so kadiri when they do that - not that anybody attempted to do that to my Yuri naman. Whew. Pero yung pinakaayaw ko sa lahat is people who are talking too loudly even when they clearly see my kid is sleeping, eh super light sleeper pa naman ng anak ko. Insensitive much?!

Cym Marzan said...

I agree on all of the above. They think our cute babies are like dolls in a store that anyone can just pinch and pet.

Celerhina Aubrey said...

We mums are like that talaga!

Celerhina Aubrey said...

I know! Kaya ako, I am always mindful of my behavior lalo na sa anak ng iba. Sabi ko nga sa #5 ok lang pag hindi naman sinasadya or what. Pero kasi diba? If aware ka naman na may sleeping baby, kahit pa nasa public ka medyo considerate ka dapat. Sa MRT nga sabi wag magpatugtog ng malakas. Dapat even if in public place, act properly padin. Hahahaha!

Celerhina Aubrey said...

Agree!

Celerhina Aubrey said...

Agree. Some nga are nananakit or sobrang dumi ng kamay. :( Eh hahawakan ang baby ko sa face or sa kamay na laging sinusubo. So hello diba?!

Que Sullano - Gavan said...

I feel you! Grabe naman kasi, akala nila super close kayo na pwede na nila gawin gusto nila!

Celerhina Aubrey said...

Diba? Kaasar! Good for you wala pang nag attempt to laway your kid. Sa akin meron. Nilayo ko talaga si baby.

Celerhina Aubrey said...

which is soooo wrong!

Celerhina Aubrey said...

Oo nga! glad I share the sentiments with alot of mums.

jerellt said...

So hindi ko na pwedeng i-kiss si Skye? Hindi ako exempted? Hahaha! But seriously with regards to NO SMOKING, hindi lang dapat 'yung exact act of smoking ang bawal. You should not go near a baby after smoking. Kasi the smell stays sa clothes and between the fingers. Ako nga na-a-allergy sa ganun, babies pa kaya? And if I may add (eepal na ako), when Skye gets older, kasama na to sa list: 11) Don't badmouth the parents in the presence of the kid. 'Yung tipong "Yung tatay mo lasenggo." "'Yung nanay mo tamad." Things like that. 12) Never ever compare a kid to their siblings. Inis na inis ako dun sa "Ay mas maganda sa'yo 'yung kapatid mo." "Bakit yung ate mo mas mataas ang grades?" WTH?!

Dadami pa 'to tol when Skye gets older. Haha!

Celerhina Aubrey said...

Syempre ikaw Ninang pwede. Harhar! May favoritism tayo eh. Tska alam ko namang hindi ka engot na alam ng may sipon sya hahalik pa sa bata. Dun ako gigil eh! Hahahahaha! Ramdam ko nga na dadami pa ang listahan ko eh. Kaya kelangan talaga tong i-blog para may guide sila

Mommy Lally said...

maarte na kung maarte...tayo naman ang mommy di ba? apir! :-D

Leilani Gamboa said...

I also dont like it when lalawayan nila si baby baka daw nausog, eww laway is so dirty kaya i refuse nlng in a nice way. Sabihin kong di naman nauusog si baby or di ako naniniwala dun. I hate it when a parent called me maarte when her toddler touched my son's face. i never cared to explain para ano pa e maarte na tingin skin. hahah. Naaliw ako sa pagbabasa ng post mo mommy :D

Mommy Jen said...

All of these is so annoying no?! People do this stuff to babies knowing that they are doing okay even if it's not. Most of the time, yung mga smokers talaga ang nakakainis eh. Even after they smoke naman, there's still that amoy left on them tapos they'll carry or kiss the baby!!! Hayy.. I am not against anyone who smokes, just don't get close to my baby. Na stress ako in explaining hehehehe. Pero great point!!

Celerhina Aubrey said...

Super agree!! :)

Celerhina Aubrey said...

Me too! Sasabihin ang arte ko eh hello? Minsan ang dumi ng kamay ng bata or syempre bata so mabigat ang kamay, nakakasakit na sa baby. Sarap batukan ng ibang mums eh.

Levy said...

Ayaw na ayaw ko yung mga nagsmoke tapos may batang katabi, kakairita.

Celerhina Aubrey said...

Me too. Nakakabwiset lang kasi parang di nag iisip. Hahahahaha!

Celerhina Aubrey said...

Ako talaga nananaway. Sabi ng Nanay ko baka daw magkaron ako ng kaaway. Sabi ko naman, ayoko maging friends sa mga makikitid utak.

Kim Reyes said...

I agree with all these things. Our youngest gets a lot of attention because he's such a charmer but nakakainis minsan because people would pinch his cheeks or kiss him. Kadiri.

Peachy Adarne said...

I think everyone's instinct is to either kiss or pinch the baby when they think the baby is cute but it really is a no-no because they might transfer bacteria or virus.

The Clueless Mom said...

I agree with everything you listed.. and I love how you pointed out that if they get sick from whatever germs they get from other people touching them, na tayo mag-aalaga at gagastos, hindi sila. I just wish everyone else understood this!

M said...

Ugh, I simply don't like smokers! And yes, the old sayings about kailangang lawayan are not true and it's not necessary!

mariqia said...

Agree ako sa 10 list mo hehe. Kaya nung baby pa tlga ang anak ko, may alcohol na katabi sya para pag may bisita sabihin ko na mag alcohol muna kasi baby pa hihi. And yes I strongly dislike smoking.

Michi said...

I don't like the kiss on the face din. Maski nga hubby ko bawal magkiss kung hindi bagong shave. hehehe! Asar din ako sa smokers, syempre ilayo ang buga ng usok sa baby.

Celerhina Aubrey said...

Agree. Eh hello?! Makakurot diba?!

Celerhina Aubrey said...

at tayo ang gumagastos at nag aalaga pag nagkasakit. Di naman sila!

Celerhina Aubrey said...

Agree! At ang hirap ng batang may sakit ah!

Celerhina Aubrey said...

True! anong konek ng laway?!

Celerhina Aubrey said...

Kami din! Alcohol forever!

Celerhina Aubrey said...

Ako, kelangan 5meters away from the baby at make sure ang hangin eh hindi papunta sa anak ko. Hahahaha!

Paulline Joy Flores said...

OMG! I agree with a lot of this. I think ill come up with my own list too. If its ok with you, I'll just reference you if i do. Or I'll direct my friends to this post as a guide. Hehe. Thanks mommy

Mamanee San Luis said...

We have a no smoking sign in front of our house since whenever someone biys from the store next door they stand in front of our door and smoke. Like the sign isn't there. I really don't understand how some can be inconsiderate that others do not like second hand smoke.

modernpinaymom.com said...

I love this list. Glad somebody wrote it before I did. I know nakakagigil ang babies, but sometimes people need to be more considerate of the measures that parents are taking to protect their children from health issues.

Celerhina Aubrey said...

No prob at all!

Celerhina Aubrey said...

Ay nakakainis yun! We have a sari-sari store pero pag bumibili ng sigarilyo, naku! Bawal magsindi. Nguyain nila yung yosi kung gusto nila. Hahahahahah!

Celerhina Aubrey said...

I know! Parang hindi nag iisip. Nakakainis diba?

Pehpot Pineda said...

karapatan nating mag inarte sa mga anak natin no!

hamo pag nagkita tayo, I'll ask permission first kung pwede ko duran este lawayan anak mo, malakas usog ko eh hehehehehe

Celerhina Aubrey said...

Hahahaha! Pwede bang cross nalang? Wala ng laway. :) Hihihihi!

May Palacpac said...

eeep, yeah!

Roxanne Santiago said...

I agree with all! Yung #1 especially when they're young (between 0-6 months old). I had a small decorative sign pa on my son's carseat/stroller when he was that age that says "before you touch, please wash your hands" or something like that. Nobody paid attention to it! Kailangan ata kabitan ng alcohol/hand sanitizer next time!

Peachy Adarne said...

True!!!

cheryl true said...

I agree Mommy! Kasi kids are always kids! We must know how to deal with them! Nice article

Celerhina Aubrey said...

Hay naku! Some people talaga are insensitive. Nakakaloka!

Celerhina Aubrey said...

Thanks!

Janice Lim said...

I definitely agree with everything on your list! Some people kasi don't understand boundaries so it's best to tell them na lang what is okay and not okay with you.

Celerhina Aubrey said...

Yes! Mabuti ng malinaw diba?

thereyou JHO said...

It seems funny but everything you said were practical and rational. May ibang tao ata kailangan pa ispell out or they'll tell you na maselan ka. There's this one time nga na may nagsabe sakin na dapat daw nadudumihan din ang bata kasi para lumakas resistensya. nako nakakainis!

Samantha Crowned said...

Pretty reasonable. I also think the usog superstition is annoying and disgusting

Celerhina Aubrey said...

Naku! that dapat madumihan is nonsense! Pag nagkasakit ba sila mag aalaga?!! Tska iba na panahon ngayon. Kaloka!

Celerhina Aubrey said...

It is! Laway on my baby?! Na-uh!
