The more I think about it the more I think it's really the name that I have issue with not the gift itself. Something about Push Present sounds so much worse then new baby gift, new mom gift or anything else.Mother to: Patrick Werner (3/10) and Mary Claire (06/12)

I have heard of this before, and I think the term 'Push Present' sounds disgusting. I can't say exactly why, but it just rubs me the wrong way. I do think it's sweet of your partner to get a small pendant or ring with sentimental value, but that should be totally up to them and not something expected or demanded. Maybe because I'm not a parent, but I just don't see the point. Isn't the baby enough of a reward?Sylvie | Ronan | Genevieve | August[formerly nj003]

That said, I do think it's a little tacky & childish to be demanding unnecessary ornate items from a magazine.Azula Rosemary

i think its sickening.
MEN OWE US NOTHING FOR HAVING CHILDREN. GUESS WHAT??? WE ARE FEMALE. ITS JUST A FACT, WE HAVE THE BABIES.
we consent to the procreation and accept that responsibility. we are not entitled.
we shouldnt lord it over men like its some incredible feat. it pregnancy hard?
well yes, BUT EVERY WOMAN IN HISTORY HAS DONE IT WITH DIGNITY UNTIL NOW.
pregnancy is just the NORM for females, its nothing crazy, its not going above and beyond, its one of our FUNCTIONS - whether our functions are due to religion or evolution. its a part of our life cycle as a species.
this wave of feminism is trying to make women equal to men when we are not, we are apples and oranges.
1 apple will never = 1 orange, 4 apples will never = 1 orange, 1 apple will never = 10 oranges.
i am a firm believer in not rewarding people for simply doing what they are meant to or supposed to do or what is right. especially if they demand reward or whine and pout that they arent getting some disgustingly expensive Tiffany's ring when that money could go to their child's college fund.
if you have to ask for a reward you didnt deserve it in the first place. this behavior makes these women look like spoiled little 4 years throwing tantrums proving they are not mature enough to have children, much less a real mature sexual relationship.
not to mention isnt a child, A WHOLE NEW IRREPLACEABLE HUMAN BEING, reward enough? oh wait, i forgot, most people dont think they are human beings with lives or rights in the first place.

Wow. I'm not the big on the idea, but there's no reason to be disrespectful. I think the people who demand a push present are the exception, not the rule and for most people it's just a fun, sweet idea
