Name-poll poll Appauling Nursery Songs... My daycare girl ws just singing.....` Rock a bye baby on the tree top, when the winds blows the cradle will rock,when the bow breaks the cradle will fall and down will come baby cradle and all. ` This is a horrible lullaby ~ if it were written today it would be banned... same thing with mother goose ~ Peter Peter Pumkin eater,had a wife and couldnt he put her he put her in a pumkin shell and there he kept her very well... Isnt that considered kidnapping or being held hostage? What was society thinking? What ones do you think should be changed?

As tto said, ``Ring Around the Rosie`` was a song about the plague. Also, the ``Sing a Song of Sixpence`` song was first sang/spoken as a way for the pirate Blackbeard to secretly recruit more pirates.

Ring around the Rosey is really about the black plague.

Most the the nursery rhymes weren`t made for `children`. They were used as a parody of political type events of that time era. Like the Mother Goose rhymes..

Let's see..."Jack and Jill went up the hill to fetch a pail of water" and Jack ended up with a traumatic head injury. "Little Miss Muffet "suffered from Arachnophobia. "There was an old lady who lived in a shoe"....SHE underfed her children and beat them before she sent them to bed. "Old mother Hubbard" had no dog bones in her cupboard and let her poor dog starve to death! "Little Bo Peep lost her sheep" and later found there skins hanging in a tree (way to go, Peep).Oh and what about `Go tell Aunt Rosie, the old grey goose is DEAD!` WTF!!!

No but a child doesnt understand the def of a swear word either and I dont say it to my child, lol. Just cause you dont know the def doesnt mean it was acceptable to write it, they could have choosen better wordage ~ your missing the point of my post, it was more in fun in how wrong they are to have been written that way, not to say it should be banned now ~

Luckly our childern don`t understand what they really are saying. We do as adults but the kids just think they are fun to sing and read. We all heard them when we were kids and I wasn`t tramatized by them lol....

Ha, ha, ha! I`ve been thinking the same thing! What about Jack and Jill went up the hill? Who writes a nursery rhyme about kids breaking their heads.

  1. This is not my profile name and I can`t sign in... anyone else having this problem?

  3. How long does it take to get AF back after having an IUD removed?
  4. Sometimes I need this site. No one knows I`m on here. I`t not facebook and I can ask questions, w/o family and friends chiming in. That being said, this will be long but, I need advice. My husband and I have 2 kids 3 and 7 and we have had a crazy 5 months. Tomorrow is hubs B-day (44). I wanted to have just a few select adults to stop over for cake. It`s not a party, after all it`s a thursday. I wanted to ask my SIL over but, not her SO or 2 kids. I felt my hubs couldn`t relax for 1/2 hour eat cake and chill w/o screaming ransacking kids (which he would hate) When I mentioned this to my MIL she said her daughter (SIL) would be offended and basically hate me for even making this suggestion. As an older parent, I can appreciate an adult just wanting to have a quick bite in a small group of adults w/o the circus that comes along with kids. I feel like a heartless asshole now. for even making the suggestion.
