A friend of mine sent me this message last night…
“Just had an interesting parenting experience at the park this evening….I am so mad that I feel like writing about it….Have you ever had the experience of dealing with toddler tantrums at the park and having some stranger who is walking by yell out that you are basically being a horrible parent because you are ignoring the tantrum (and therefore trying not to give into your child)?
It’s hard enough to be a parent without feeling the judging eyes of people around you (would bet any money this woman was the perfect parent…i.e. one without a child yet!).”
Have you ever experienced unsolicited comments (from judgmental strangers) about how you parent your children? How do you react? Would love to hear about your thoughts and experiences!by
