People are judgmental. We have known that for a long time. And, face it, everybody judges others to some extent. Even me, even you.
Sometimes we find ourselves judging people who have a pretty tough job – parents. Have you ever been out in a restaurant or shopping and witnessed something that just makes you think, “Wow, this parent totally sucks.”? Welp, these 22 people definitely have. And they kindly chose to share exactly what made them feel that sentiment. Some are definitely worse than others, FYI.
Take a look.
1. Shower much?
Not teaching your children basic hygiene.
2. Control your children
Letting their kid run amok in a store, while paying them no mind.
3. Social media sensation
Exploiting your kid for youtube views.
4. Look at me!
Never actually having your kid but making out to the world like you are parent of the year.
Taking care of yourself before your child. “I’m too broke for that but I just spent hundreds of dollars on myself”.
Making empty promises to your children.
Blaming your children for your own unhappiness.
5. Sounds like a tv show
Smoking almost a full pack of cigarettes while being 32 weeks pregnant and a 2 year old on your hip, living in your boyfriend’s parent’s house.
6. Reading rainbow
Not reading to your children. Ignoring them in favor of being on your phone or computer. Not making sure they’re bathed before school/dressed for the weather/etc. There is a difference between being poor financially and being a poor parent
Putting off this “awesome parent” persona on social media but then completely being absent from the kids lives. Where are your kids, Tara?! I shouldn’t be seeing you at the bar every fucking weekend night
Verbally and/or physically abusing your children in public. After witnessing some horrific parents brazenly screaming at and smacking their kids, I can’t imagine what they subject those poor kiddos to in private.
