Being Judged As A Mother

(Picture from google images)

Until I became a mum being judged is not something I'd ever really experienced. As soon as you have children people think it's OK to give there opinion on every aspect of raising your children. 

My favourite is being out in a random shop and my toddler having a full on tantrum and people stop in their tracks, stare and mutter under the breaths. I would love to know how they think this could possibly help the situation. It's like this is the only child they have ever seen cry. You are stood there trying to deal with said child all while you can feel the stares of complete strangers burning into the back of your head. It is already stressful enough without an audience tutting at you. I see other mums going through this when I'm out and I just want to go over and help. 

Your not feeding them the right foods, there not being stimulated enough, you should just let them cry it out, you should try disciplining them this way, the list just goes on and on. The only people who know what is right for their children is the parents. End of. 

Don't get me wrong I will always take supportive advice but I will not accept being made to feel like I am not trying hard enough to be the perfect mum.

Being a mum is bloody hard and I think as a society we need to be more supportive of families and take into consideration how truly hard raising children is.

That was a bit ranty wasn't it but that's what this blog is for, my honest view of everything motherhood.

I would love to know your thoughts on this subject.
