  • Why we Shouldn’t Judge Other People’s Parenting

    I may not be perfect, but I am going to try and offer a bit of understanding before making someone feel worse, I am going to try and think about the million things that might prevent a parent or anyone from doing what might seem so obvious and right to the rest of us before condemning them, and most of all I am going to try and help instead of scold.
