my little farting unladylike daughter
Ever since my boyfriend moved in with us, my 7 year old little girl runs around farting almost non-stop. I know it's a natural thing but is there any way I can let her know that it's not a very 'girlie' thing to do?? I think the fact that he has made it a funny thing to gross her out with bathroom smells(naturally we send her after a brush when the timing is perfect!!) and noises makes her think this is okay, but I'm horrified she will do this in school or a restaurant or at a Christmas dinner and I just cant get her to stop!! She runs around laughing and saying 'pinky stinky' for gods sake...HELP!!
Thanks for the question!
You know, your boyfriend sounds SUSPICIOUSLY like Mr. Poonurse. He delights in farting everywhere. He particularly likes to fart at Walmart, where he will let a particularly smelly one rip right when there is some nice elderly lady next to us--then he moves away. I have to follow him or the nice lady will think that I did it.
Men believe that farting is hysterically funny--whether the first time or the 1 millionth time. I like a good fart as much as the next person, but come on! There is a limit, men!
I hope he doesn't teach your daughter to light her farts.
Please be advised that I am only a Poonurse. I am NOT a medical doctor. Any advice I give should be taken moderate skepticism. Please consult a REAL medical doctor if you feel you have a serious medical condition.
Poonurse is an RN with 25 years experience in labor and delivery. Her qualifications include seeing a lot of poop, and owning a computer. Also, she works in Michigan, which she calls the asshole of the universe, so that's another bit of credibility.
Got a question for her?
