    Yeahhhh... I didn't think I was judgy though until we lived where we used to live and I had seen a variety of questionable parenting. I'm glad we moved a bit away from that, it was getting me down.

    Probably, but not to any great extent. I certainly don't think it's justified unless it;s something which seriously affects the child's wellbeing.

    I'm reasonably young (23 with a 9 month old), and I can't say I've experienced any obvious judgement. I do wonder whether anybody judges me negatively on being young, particularly since I've had a few people guess/comment that I looked about 16 when out and about with my daughter, but haven't heard a single negative comment about my age.

    Yep, but I generally keep it to myself.

    There are mums on here that are on my block list because I find their parenting methods distressing, lol

    Yep.
    Sometimes I feel justified.
    Sometimes I feel ashamed.
    Most of the time I keep my mouth closed and my mind open.
    I certainly judge others a lot less now than I did before my children arrived.

    The way I've started looking at age is more where you are in your life.. I'm 21 and have done a uni degree, have been a qualified midwife for 12 months and travelled overseas twice by myself (fully funded by myself as well). 21 doesn't seem so young to be having a baby when you look at your life....

    I don't judge parents by their age, no. I was married at 20 and had two children by 24 and I was happy. When I see a young mum it takes me back to my early days. I will admit I do judge on a parents abilty no matter what age they are if it's displayed in public...but surely that's natural. Every has an opinion and there is many times I know my abilities are being judged when one of my kids misbehave.

    I guess I judge on whether I think parents are doing the best job they can. If the answer appears no then I guess I am judgemental. I don't care if the mum is young, old, rich, poor, works, sahm etc as long as the kids are loved and well cared for. Some things I don't think are ever acceptable , young kids out really late at night in winter without warm clothes on, coke in baby bottles....yikes!

    I think the only parenting thing really judge (apart from the obvious abuse/neglect) is people who are smug in their parenting choices. And when I say judge I mentally think "what a knob!"
