Yes, it's a thread about a thread (thing I can be judged for number 1!) but I feel so bad about my looooong and horrendous list of things I judge that I feel the need to punish myself and see what I have been judged over. Some of the things I posted I even do so judging myself as well as other people doing it for me! Anyone else?

So far, for me, it's:
1) Ugg boots (they're so comfortable sad )
2) Shop bought cakes (not as nice but such a time saver!)
3) Drinking in pubs and ignoring my kids running around (they're having fun I think!)
4) Driving too fast/too slowly/tailgating/middle lane driving (don't do any of these regularly but have been guilty of them all)
5) Adults who like boybands/Disney (some of the songs are catchy!)
6) Little girls wearing makeup (my children are in competitive dance/gym)
7) saying 'boys will be boys' to justify my stupid sexist opinions
8) Judgey people (never openly but so much privately)
9) Looking in other people's trolleys
10) Food shopping with the whole family (single parent)
11) Not following through with threatened sanctions
12) People who stick with their religion despite its atrocities (I can't turn my belief on and off like a tap)
13) People who are late (not often but it happens)
14) Affected incompetence
15) People who leave their washing on the line overnight
16) People who swear around children
17) People who swear
18) hypocrites
19) People who use the word kids
20) Drivers who cannot parallel park
21) People who drive a walkable distance without good reason
22) People who make no attempt to breastfeed
23) People who are actively religious
24) Women with two functioning hands who can't change a plug
25) Babies and toddlers being farmed out to nursery
26) People who say scone to rhyme with gone
27) People who don't teach their children to swim
28) People who swear on mumsnet
29) Adults who don't like a whole range of foods and pull faces like children
30) Boarding school (I work in one)
31) teachers who can't spell or use grammar properly (I'm very good at both but I'm not perfect)
32) People who drive to the gym (it is 10 miles away though!)
33) Taking cocaine (not anymore but within my older children's lifetimes)
34) People who don't like Jeremy Kyle or Real Housewives
35) Filthy nailed people (they need cleaning (badly!) every night, I really don't know how it happens)

Phew, I think I've been judged slightly more than I've judged. Feel slightly better!

My MIL judged us this weekend. Apparently my son's Tourettes is not a neurological condition like his Paediatrician claims but the result of our bad parenting.

deakymom Mon 14-Apr-14 23:44:56

i get judged on number 22 however i have my reasons and i don't care if you don't know what they are MY BREASTS and it is MY CHOICE

and as for number 25 the government has decided we can't look after our own children (too many greggs and fruit shoots perhaps?) we should all be working anyway and would you rather they were left to play alone like that child in america? his mom went to work came home and shock horror her child was dead i would rather farm them out than that

Here I was told I could only tskr my DD to noisy places as she has SN.

IRL I was judged for her being a messy eater and her being a bit noisy. Also not being toilet trained. She has severe autism.Some people suck.

But there are lovely people here too. Don't let the judgers get you down.

Iwasyoungonce - I know I have! Seriously, my nastiness has been on my mind all evening!

I wish I could be one of these people who just don't judge. How do you do it?? Seriously! I understand how you can not show it/act on it as I don't myself but how you can stop the thoughts from coming into your head is beyond me.

Luckily everyone thinks I am one of these people who doesn't judge instead of knowing that I am a secret judger of almost everything under the sun!!

I can think of loads more things I judge myself for that haven't been mentioned on the other thread.

Just existing, basically confused

I get judged all the time when i go out.

I have 5 children (only 2 share a dad people judge but i don't care each was conceived in a relationship.

I have a sn son who "tantrums" and dd1 and ds3 follow suit not long after (neither of them are sn they just are copying ds2 and think its normal.

I'm a single mum on benefits until me and dp find a house together.

I smoke but trying to quit i don't go out and i don't drink and thb its my crutch when i'm stressed.

I have a tattoo and i lip piercing's

Dd1 is 5 and has her ears pierced she loves picking new earrings as a treat.

I'm underweight and people assume i have an eating disorder.

I do sometimes take the kids to McDonald's and they have had a fruit shoot and a greggs.

I have weaned all 3 of my boys at 4 months on purees older 2 was drinking 8ozs of milk every 2 hours and HV said they needed to go on food and ds3 was prem and i was advised same for him.

Only tried to breastfeed ds1 and ds2 but didn't work out and with the other 3 i was on AD's.

And mums at school judge me cause I'm the mum of "that boy" and an obvious goth and they don't approve of my t-shirts or my dresses, i have also been asked not to wear make up to school so i don't scare the children.

I also probably get judged for a lot of other things but i stopped caring a long time ago.

And dp gets judged for being a long haired rocker who doesn't mind pushing his dd in the buggy, with the looks he gets anyone would think he'd nicked her grin
