I judge parents who don't look after their kids properly. What does this mean? Basically if the child is happy, healthy, loved and generally well adjusted and has a good self esteem, polite and well mannered. .. them they are obviously being looked after and why would I judge that.
There have been comments about routine. .. which I ascribe to the well. Kids thrive on consistency and knowing what's expected. But I don't judge others who don't use routines.
If I saw a parent swear or hit their child. . or their kids are running around inappropriate places where they could hurt others or themselves. ..or they are rude or swearing at others I do judge that.
I also. .. and I'm probably going to be hated for this. .. but I judge parents whose kids are grossly overweight. I think it's a parental responsibility to teach kids how to look after themselves. .. and food etc is part of that. And I say this as someone who does struggle with weight.

I judge parents who let their kids walk all over them and barely bat an eyelid when their kid is being insanely rude to them.. Like yesterday I saw a mum and roughly 4 year old boy in a shopping centre and the boy was yelling angrily "give me some! Give it to me NOW! Gimme NOW" I felt like telling the kid myself to be quiet and stop being so damn rude, my kids would be pulled up so quick if they spoke to me like that.

I will admit there are times when I judge, but in saying that I feel judged by other mums all the time!
I think we all do it whether we want to or not

His school has a emergency lunch policy if they forget or aren't sent lunch the canteen provides a sandwich piece of fruit & a popper at lunch & a fruit salad at little lunch then sends home a note to the parents.
Sad to think that some parents aren't very attentive or caring when it comes go their kids eating habits

I have met a child who was rude and yelling at the mother. The mother became teary at the amount of people staring and explained the child has a disability. It's hard to judge unless you know the person well.

Now, to be clear... When I refer to a routine I am talking about parents who want their baby napping at a certain time (regardless of whether they are crying hysterically) and feed at a certain time. I do think it's cruel to leave a baby crying hysterically in a cot just because you want it in a routine. I don't have a problem with routine later on in life, but I think it's sad to expect a new born baby to fit into your schedule.
