    Default Do you judge other parents??

    As a 21 year old, I consider myself a 'young mum' ... And I often wonder whether older people judge me when they see me out with my pram.

    So, I'm sure we can all be a little judgmental at times, (even the people who don't admit it).... Do you judge other parents?? If you do... What do you judge?

    I'm curious to know

    I became a sole parent by choice using donor sperm before the age of 25 following a near death experience at 21. I felt no judgement over having a baby, only when I mentioned using donor sperm and intentionally going it alone. So I didn't mention that part.

    I let people believe either I had a loving husband at home or I had a relationship break down recently.

    I judge young parents that think that other parents judge them for judging that they think they are judging when really no one is judging but making judging assumptions based on relative judging experience which is contrived as judging which then lends itself to judging the judger.
    Judge?

    I find your comment to be full of judgements

    Honestly OP, I judge parents who are clearly under the influence of substances, who are belting (not just smacking- I don't particularly like smacking but I don't necessarily judge it) or screaming abuse at their kids.
    Or if they are pushing a Strider (Joke! Joke!)
    I don't really notice young parents tbh. I'm terrible at guessing people's ages.

    Bahaha did you say judging enough, I'm sure you could've put a few more in there

    Wow... You are amazingly strong! I take my hat off to single parents, I don't know how you do it.. I have a friend who is a single parent to 4 kids & before having children I judged her.. I honestly used to think, god it can't be that hard. But now, I have so much respect for her and I honestly look up to her.

    I judge neglect and abuse (and a few parenting things that I feel fall in that category that others might not agree with ).
    Age, parenting styles, number of kids, and other things that people do differently are nothing to judge people over (and I hate it when people get judgey with me lol).
