to think that a child should NOT be judging my parenting skills?

so, I was on the bus today, feeling a bit frazzled because the baby was screaming again, when a small girl (cant have been more than 2) reprimanded by child for crying, saying it wasnt nice. anyway, I let rip at the childs mum(?) and told her that she shouldnt be teaching judgeypants, but should look at her own parenting.

<swigs gin>

I not sure she was judging you, she was just being two. (Obviously I wasn't there but my DD also says things she shouldn't from time to time.) They just say what they see.

Anyway, hope the baby stopped screaming & you managed to unfrazzle a bit. smile

Agree with not judging, just being a two year old. I was in town earlier and a mum was shouting at her little girl, using her name "AMELIA!!" so of course my DS started shouting "AMELIA!" as well thinking it was a game. The mum did not look amused.

Apparently when I was about 3 I was at a train station with my mum and there was another little boy there about 6. He got very excited and said "The choo-choo's coming" to which I asked my mum "What's wrong - can that boy not say train?".

Some kids are just smug little shits who grow up to wear massive judgey pants.

And the mother/nanny should be ashamed of herself!

She's probably been told recently that tantruming isn't nice and just applied it (incorrectly) to your baby.

Calm down, get a grip and make yourself a brew.

a woman was in our newsagents the other day her 2 DDs were around age 2 and 4 and were climbing in and out of freezers running out the doors and the mum was trying to pay for her shopping, my DD (6) pipes up '' looks like she's having a hard time eh mum?'' luckily the poor woman didnt hear her but i told her off all the same tho she didnt say it cheekily more the way i would to a friend mortified i was!!

also when DD was 2 we were on the bus and a friend of my sister got on with her DD of around the same age, her daughter was screaming her head off and my DD just turned to her and puting her finger to her own mouth went SHHHHH!! sake!! i went the brightest shade of red ever...

In the post office I heard a child say to her mother "is that lady poor"? whilst pointing at me. The child was about 6.

I'd just told DS he couldn't have some tat from the wire bins (on the basis it was tat not that we hadn't the money). I cast her and her mother a withering look.

Am very intrigued by the difference between what you claim you said and the mouthful of abuse the other woman says you gave her in her chat thread.
