    Honestly OP, I judge parents who are clearly under the influence of substances, who are belting (not just smacking- I don't particularly like smacking but I don't necessarily judge it) or screaming abuse at their kids.
    Or if they are pushing a Strider (Joke! Joke!)
    I don't really notice young parents tbh. I'm terrible at guessing people's ages.
    Don't go judging Mystic Meg! She can't help it - she has a gift.

    Seriously OP, I have three under eight and if I'm shopping I wouldn't register if there was a 12 year old pushing a pram - I'm too freakin' busy with my own business.

    I really do my best to not judge others because usually im the one being judged.


    But i have been a young parent and no i dont judge other young parents. Once i did... A young mum was dragging her screaming toddler by the arm socket pushing a pram that had a slab of woodstock in it... I thought that was super classy.




    But generally i dont even nottice other people when im out, because im too busy dealing with my own nightmare situation

    I only judge when the safety and/or wellbeing of the child comes into play.

    As far as age, parenting styles, what you feed your kid, if you own a bogan pram etc... Could not give two hoots.

    If I'm honest, I do ....hmmm, trying to find the right words.....umm, 'look down my nose' at completely feral parents who are being verbally and physically abusive to their kids in public (I'd hate to see what goes on behind closed doors?!?) or who are verbally abusing each other in front of the kids.

    Like one day I caught the bus because my car was having work done on it and this feral couple got on with a toddler. The man was calling the woman awful names and berating her in front of everyone. I felt sorry for her, it must have been so humiliating. But then I kind of judged her because she was obviously putting up with that by staying with such a horrible 'man'.

    I only judge on the really important things like if they make their own kids birthday cakes

    I've never judged on age - never really even thought about it to be honest - like pp,s I mainly judge on treatment of kids, smacking etc

    Judge?
    Lol to be clear I don't assume people judge me for being a young parent.. I just wonder whether its something that crosses their mind... Probably from my own insecurities as I never wanted to be a young mum.

    Yep I judge. I'm definitely a young mum (bub is due in a few weeks and I turn 20 next week) and I judge other young mums but not always negatively! I suppose I observe rather than judge. I think I'm most critical of older parents (30s) though because I've seen so many of them make questionable parenting choices. (I'm from a small town so everyone knows everyone).
