    How awful. I'm glad no one said anything to the mum. I probably would have offered her a hand.

    I would of said...

    Not a children are perfect and behave well. And instead of critersisng the poor woman perhaps you should have offered some help. Stop being so judgmental!

    That poor mum. She probably went home and had a good cry and was all too aware of the judgement.

    I've been that mum, when DD was that age and we'd have mothers' group get togethers. Years later when they started having more children and realised that not all children respond the same way they actually apologised to me...

    Now DD is an angel and people compliment me on her, but at the time they all thought I was the worst parent in the world. Its an awful feeling.

    I probably wouldn't waste too much time arguing with the group of mums. I'd just say something like, "I don't like to cast judgment, we're all doing the best we can with what we've got". And then I'd make sure to give the other mum a call and check how she's going, and be supportive and friendly.

    God there are so many judgemental people out there 😁 Poor Mum, I don't think I would have been able to bite my tongue
