Being a parent is the most unique job in the world. Billions of people do it, yet there’s so little we agree upon. Every family and culture has their long-held traditions and beliefs when it comes to raising children. Like in Iceland, where parents leave their baby carriages out on their front porch for them to nap in the cold. It might seem preposterous to leave a baby outside alone to us non-Icelanders, but it works for them. And hey, they produced Bjork so they must be doing something right.
Folks online have so much to say about parenting, from the right products to buy to the right vitamins to take, or how to get your toddler to eat vegetables (or if vegetables are the devil and you should put them on the carnivore diet). There’s enough discourse to make your head spin. So when a Twitter user opened up a question about parent’s most controversial parenting takes, commenters had a lot to say.
