I interpreted Rose's post to mean she didn't see a problem with either scenario.
Society has deemed that at a certain point judging of other parents is not only ok, it is necessary. Child protection agencies exist under the idea that it's ok to judge parents who are doing a **** job and putting heir kids at risk.
I think the issues are more when/where/how/at what point it is ok to judge. And people will have different opinions on these points based on their life experiences and personality. I personally prefer upfront honest judgement over covert have-a-dig-but-you-can't-prove-I'm-having-a-dig style judgement. That's just my preference though.
The fact of judging in itself has already been legitimatised in legislation and Government policy.
So essentially it's a choice for these women, who then put their kids in CC. Now I have zero judgment of that. I love being a SAHM but I get some women would rather blow their brains out. How is that different?
As to whether I judge.... I try not to, but of course I do sometimes, I'm human.
I tend to judge when people put their child's physical and/or emotional health at risk for selfish reasons.
That's the thing about judgement, you don't really know anyone else's situation. What works for someone else might not work for you, that's ok though, it doesn't have to.
