    From the perception of the author. For somebody who usually likes to have all the facts before deciding you're oddly willing to take a blog post at face value.

    I don't think she's 'angry' with her, just doesn't think she seems like a very nice person considering how she chose to handle the situation.

    I said straight away that I didn't agree with leaving kids in the car...but she doesn't get to give her side of the story...so, based on the article, the woman who wrote it sounds like a cow and I finished it feeling more annoyed with her due to her holier than thou 'let me judge you, give you a lecture about how much I judge you, and then try and publicly shame you so I can continue to feel superior' personality that shines through in this post, over the woman who left her kids in the car.

    The thought crossed my mind that maybe VP wrote the blog post.

    Put simply, I don't think the mom went 15 minutes without looking out the window to assess if she thought her children were fine or not.

    To be honest even if the article is slightly off in terms of time estimates etc it won't really affect my assessment. Mum left kids in car to get coffee. That's enough for me to make a judgement.

    I'm not surprised that Bub Hubbers are coming to the Defence of the latte mother though - in the absence of confirmatory information it's generally the BH thing to err on the side of the mother being in the right.

    Considering her kids were distressed and trying to climb in the front of the car her rate of 'checking in' was obviously not frequent enough.

    So just to confirm .... you are judging the judger of a parent that put her kids at risk rather than the actual parent that put her kids at risk?

    People here do it all the time, I actually chatted with a mum the other day while I had a coffee and she grabbed a coffee and sandwiches while her two year old and 4 year old were in the car. She watched them through the window. I've listed things I've done. I just simply don't believe the mom wasn't watching. And if the author was watching the distressed kids the whole time, how would she know the mom wasn't looking?
