    Default Strangers not nice!

    I've had I bad week, with my two girls, while doing my shopping last Saturday with my girls, they were screaming/ playing up like most kids do, and I get from a couple walking past a look of disgust, they both shaking there heads, give my evils eyes, I let it go, my mum seen them do it too! Oh and the one yesterday was when we were at the pet store looking at fish, my 18 months got excited and let out a squeal, he covered his ears and shook his head and walked away! The mood I was in it's lucky I didn't give him a peace of my mind! Question what i'am doing wrong! I should just never leave the house cause that's how I feel, I must add, my hubby hasn't been there during those times, I so wish he was!!

    Are you young or look really young? The feral looks and inappropriate come with the territory of being a young mum. I get it all the time.
    Try not to pay much attention to it all. It's really not worth getting upset over it.

    Here's a step by step guide to handle this situation:

    Ok, first, I want you to relax. In your mind, I want you to focus on a calm thought or memory. Hold that thought. Are you feeling calm? At peace?

    Good.

    Now, holding that thought, approach the person who gave you the dirty look. Keeping the peaceful thought in you mind, smile winningly at them. And, whilst still keeping that same aura of calm about you, gently but firmly raise you right hand, make a fist, and then extend your middle finger. Hold that position for a few seconds. Then, still keeping that aura of calm about you, turn and go back to your children.

    I hope this meditation helps you!




    You'll have to excuse the iPhone auto correct. It sax!

    I dont mean this too sound nasty nor is it directed at anyone.

    These people probly dont have kids of there own so very quick to judge your children's behaviour! and with your partner not being there they are quick to judge and say single mum with 2 screaming ferral kids!

    I Get it all the time I go out i used to not want to go out because people stare make quick judgement and really should never judge because normally the people judging and saying my kids would never do that etc are really in for a big awaking.

    But why care what these people think? Thats awesome your child get excieted about fish, my son would be trying to break the glass to get the fish or spitting or even throwing himself on the ground screaming

    I had a silly old biddy go up to my very tired 2 year old and tell her it was absolutely disgusting that she has a dummy ad she should grow and and get rid of it. There was something in there about having a bad mum.
    Dd was standing next to my mum( who was too taken aback to say anything) but I said my piece!!
    Made me feel much better afterwards too!

    I don't even notice these people anymore. Honestly? I have stopped looking at other people in public...unless you actually say my name, I'm not looking!!

    Seriously, if this is the worst thing thats ever happened if their lives, they've done well!!

    Oh no! I wish I hadn't read this thread. But I did and I also read your post in another thread GFP which made me think about my Dad

    My dad suffered from brain tumours for several months before his untimely death - he loved my children, but if they squealed or made too much noise he said it literally rattled his brain and particularly as he got sicker and lost words etc, if there was certain pitches hit he would clasp his ears and cover them til his head stopped hurting or the noise stopped I've also sat next to my nan and my MIL who both wear hearing aids and the feedback from certain squeals/noises that you get in hearing aids can sometimes be like microphone feedback. I was thinking of your post GFP that said 'be kind - everyone is fighting a hard battle' .

    The old farts and whining men, and the mums with kids too huh!
