I was 20 when my son was born and until now hadn't considered myself a young mum! I do judge though OP, it's just human nature. Something I try to remember is you never know what is actually happening when you see something questionable in the shops etc. sooo many times now we've been caught in unexpected situations that would look really odd from the outside.
My judging is not reserved to parents only, it's a general population thing
I don't usually unless they're feral or screaming at their child etc
I judge every now and again - but not for petty stuff like what brand of pram people are pushing.
I don't judge based on age - there are good and bad parents in every age group.
I cannot help but judge when I see instances of neglect, or blatant disregard for a child's safety. But I think that's a pretty normal and valid response.
No, but I'm glad I wasn't a young mum, but I have 2 sisters and friends who were/are!
Can't help but look down on mums with a bunch of kids (3 or more) with a ciggy hanging out looking feral/bogan/druggy and being maybe 20 years old...actually I just think thank god it's not me!!
