I go down the road all the time and of course you see mums with kids and the kids acting up and playing around, most mums feel pressure to perform and look good in other people’s eyes but guess what you shouldn’t! Im sick of seeing other mums pull faces, look down upon, make snide and rude comments at other mums who are doing their job as a mum. Next time you think about having a laugh or making a comment remind yourself that may well be you next time you are at the shop. Give that mum a smile or tell her what a great job she is doing. The world will be a much better place and it will help both yours and hers shopping experience.

  • So agree with you. I always give the mums who are having a hard time a sympathetic child or tell them I understand as I’ve been through that.


  • I always try to flash a smile and let mum or dad know that they’re doing ok, and I’m sure the kids are just trying to send us crazy lol it normally brings a smile to the parents face


  • I usually like to flash a smile if mum makes eye contact!


  • Such wise words the world would be a heap better if we all just took a moment to be nice rather than judge


  • Also; offer to assist. I have helped other mums with unloading their groceries when their hands are full!


  • Try and ignore the looks and judgments; they are not worth it! As we have know idea about anyone else’s life; we should hold back on judgment. A smile or kind word can be a sanity saver! Practise being kind; it really does make you feel better! :)


  • I usually try to make a sympathetic remark if I see someone having trouble with her kids.


  • I agree. Absolutely no guarantees of when the little ones lose it and start acting up. Definitely need the support not judgement.


  • yeah we should be kind to each other because it makes it easier. great post.
