I can't believe that people exist who don't EVER find what their kids do/say/play is absolutely never mundane or just not very exciting.
I don't tut at people who get out their phone occasionally, because I do too, but I've seen so many kids pleading with their mum or dad to even look up at them and be constantly answered with "in a minute!" I find that sad. Also, my son is sometimes the one who pushes, yells etc. at other kids, so I need to watch him. Imagine the threads that would be started on here if I was that mum who was glued to the phone when my son hit another kid at the park LMAO

Well I'll be sure to add this one to the list of bad parenting. I must say, it's getting harder harder to do anything right these days.
Heavens only knows what the school mums think of me but then again seeing as not one of them respond to my "hi how are you" I'm not sure I care. Yes I will be on my iPhone while sitting outside of DS' classroom waiting for the bell to ring trying to finish my emails from work that I couldn't get to as I had to leave to fight the traffic to get him.
If I put him in to OOSH I'd be judged for being one of those mums who puts work first, if I watched his every move at the park I'd be one of those mums that hover or that horrible term helicopter, if I let them watch a movie rather than play I'd be one of those mums that let them watch too much tv. You're one of those mums no matter what you do!
I think its good for kids to understand that their parents have friends and have a life outside of catering to them! And its certainly not healthy for anybody to not have a social life outside their family. But like a pp said its all about balance
