Chrissie, I think you are just luffly
Your boys are obviously loved, cherished and happy which means you are doing a great job. Keep your head held high and trust your mum-instincts.
This storm will pass

While it is really unfair to criticise another parent (especially when you don't even know them personally!) it is much much worse to criticise a child! Who do these people think they are?
I have had plenty of comments and worried looks over my daughters weight - but at the other end of the spectrum. She's underweight and no matter what I do, I just can't get her to stay on the chart! Everyone has a different struggle.
Chrissy, ignore the Perfect Parent Brigade. They ain't so perfect themselves.

As soon as I heard about this vomit in the media, my heart went out to you and your gorgeous family immediately. I said to my husband, if I were judged on anything to do with my mothering, I would be gutted. As parents, the last thing we want is for somone to point out any flaws in how we are rasing our children; because for me, mothering my child is something I relish in and protect with fierce pride.
How dare anybody (let alone a 21 year old childless "soapy star") even dream of putting you down. You are cleary an adoring, loving and nuturing mother. For what it's worth, the negative tabloids do NOT reflect the majority.. you are very much loved by the public and we have your back
Time for these haters to focus their attentions on something else. how dare they make your child the poster child of the childhood obesity epidemic?! You stated that he has NEVER even tasted a fish finger, never eaten a chicken nugget and dislikes cream. And that he happily eats 4 banana's a day! Oh, the ordeals I went through trying to get my boy to eat fruit and vegies! You're lucky! To this day, he still will not eat most vegies, or fruit, no salad. And man, did I try! He's almost 13 and I still have to hide the vegies in his meals and hide the food labels If he reads that something contains tomato or onion, see ya later, mum.
Lay off Chrissie, people! Go bother the real child abusers!
Congrats on your gorgeous family, Chrissie!

Hi Chrissie! I think you are doing a great job as a mum- your boys look so happy and you have taken steps to look after their health. No more than that can be expected of any mother. The cruel vitriol you and your children have copped from armchair warriors and and childless "stars" who have no qualifications at all has been disgusting. I hope your sons never read any of the nasty rubbish that has been said. They should be proud of having such a caring mum. Anyone who says otherwise...stuff em!

Chrissie, I think you seem like a great mum! I love in your column that you are so honest about life and don't think we all have to be perfect to be happy. Your little boys are very lucky to have you as their mum. They look gorgeous and happy, and i'm sure as their mum, you know what's best for them. You can see in those photo's the love you have for your children, that's the most important thing of all.
Don't pay attention to all the haters, a lot them are just trying to feel better about their own lives by putting you down. It's really a sad state of affairs when people will pick on a 3 year old boy.
Hopefully you don't take all of this to heart and realise that there are plenty of women who think you are a great role model.

You are a beautiful person, inside
And out. You always appear so genuine and real, a rarity in our media society these days. You carry yourself with so much dignity and class.
You should be very proud of your gorgeous family- when you speak about them your face lights up and we as viewers can practically feel the love you have for them.
You are an inspirational woman, Chrissy. Be proud of who you are, be proud of your family.

I dont know you, but I felt that I must send you some words of support.....
It makes me very sad that judgement occurs in this world. What ever happened to empathy? Is it an emotion most of the human beings in this world have lost somewhere along the way? How can you judge someone for anything, let alone their parenting?
Unfortunately, judgemnet is something that happens way too often, and Im sorry that you were a victim of this. Hold your head up high Chrissie, you dont have to explain yourself to anyone.....

Yep one here!
Heard you on the radio Chrissie, 3pm pickup is the only show I listen to. You don't need to defend yourself or your actions. I think you're amazing and your children are just gorgeous!!!
