    I judge parents who don't look after their kids properly. What does this mean? Basically if the child is happy, healthy, loved and generally well adjusted and has a good self esteem, polite and well mannered. .. them they are obviously being looked after and why would I judge that.
    There have been comments about routine. .. which I ascribe to the well. Kids thrive on consistency and knowing what's expected. But I don't judge others who don't use routines.
    But...
    If I saw a parent swear or hit their child. . or their kids are running around inappropriate places where they could hurt others or themselves. ..or they are rude or swearing at others I do judge that.
    I also. .. and I'm probably going to be hated for this. .. but I judge parents whose kids are grossly overweight. I think it's a parental responsibility to teach kids how to look after themselves. .. and food etc is part of that. And I say this as someone who does struggle with weight.

    I judge parents who let their kids walk all over them and barely bat an eyelid when their kid is being insanely rude to them.. Like yesterday I saw a mum and roughly 4 year old boy in a shopping centre and the boy was yelling angrily "give me some! Give it to me NOW! Gimme NOW" I felt like telling the kid myself to be quiet and stop being so damn rude, my kids would be pulled up so quick if they spoke to me like that.

    I will admit there are times when I judge, but in saying that I feel judged by other mums all the time!

    I think we all do it whether we want to or not

    I also judge this. Working in schools and seeing kids who are grossly overweight and then watching what they eat for recess and lunch is not nice to witness.

    Yep that's why I judge it. I work in schools too. I have taught a morbidly obese year 6 student before and I look in the lunch and is just junk. Try to talk to the parents but they don't care. It makes me feel sad for the child who will grow up battling weight issues their whole life. And the parents could change that.

    I know how you feel. I was teaching a grade 1 who had a mars bar, chips, doughnut and money for the canteen for recess. I soon found out she was also eating her lunch during morning tea, when each lunch she would tell me she didn't have any. The poor kid couldn't keep up with kids during play time and really struggled with normal activity too.

    That's really sad I would have had a word with her parents & suggested a dietician visit in order or more sustainable filling healthy foods rather than sugary junk. I know my boy has often told his teacher he didnt have fruit when I always pack 2 pieces of fruit

    His school has a emergency lunch policy if they forget or aren't sent lunch the canteen provides a sandwich piece of fruit & a popper at lunch & a fruit salad at little lunch then sends home a note to the parents.
    Sad to think that some parents aren't very attentive or caring when it comes go their kids eating habits

    I'll admit I've judged that too, and I have big babies, who are heavy for their age, and I'm in no way saying my kids have am absolutely perfect diet and that I'm immune to big pleading eyes... But.... How can parents look at what they've done to their healthy child's body and not decide to do better. It must be hard, particularly once they've gotten their child totally addicted to sugar, but yeah I've looked at a morbidly obese mother sitting next to a little girl jaspers age who would have been his height but twice his size, both eating maccas, and while we do have maccas occasionally (obviously we were there too!) yeah... I judged.... It was a bit like devil and angel on each shoulder, angel suggested maybe a genetic thing, maybe maccas was just a treat like it is for us, maybe I'm misreading the situation and I shouldn't judge... But I doubt it.

    I have met a child who was rude and yelling at the mother. The mother became teary at the amount of people staring and explained the child has a disability. It's hard to judge unless you know the person well.

No offence but you're really showing your age with that comment. My DD receives more love and attention than she could ever possibly need and since being on this horrible routine you speak of she sleeps 6 hours straight at night, naps in the day and is a VERY happy baby. She's gaining weight like a champ and smiles lots! She can also take herself off to sleep at nap times. Can you say the same for your newborn?? I'm guessing not!

    I believe it's mean to NOT put a baby in a routine. Flying by the seat of your pants isn't a great option IMO
    Excuse me? I think you are incredibly rude to assume that my son is not happy, smiling & thriving just because I don't have him in a routine. I demand breast feed him, he naps throughout the day, he has lots of tummy time, we have baths morning & night & he sleeps great at night. In fact, when ever I take him to appointments or meet new people they comment on how they have never seen such a content baby.

    Now, to be clear... When I refer to a routine I am talking about parents who want their baby napping at a certain time (regardless of whether they are crying hysterically) and feed at a certain time. I do think it's cruel to leave a baby crying hysterically in a cot just because you want it in a routine. I don't have a problem with routine later on in life, but I think it's sad to expect a new born baby to fit into your schedule.
