056: What I’d Say to Judgemental Strangers, If I Had the Nerve | Lisa York

Those who judge don’t understand. Those who understand don’t judge
 

Has a random stranger ever come up to you and told you off about what you’re doing (or not doing) with your child?

There’s nothing I find more irritating.

Stranger: “Excuse me dear, it’s a very cold day. Don’t you think he should have his socks on”.

You: “You don’t say. That’s why I’ve put them back on 15 times already and finally gave up about a minute before you arrived” (said in thought bubble).

It’s happened to me just a few times in my 7 years as a parent, but boy, do I remember it.

Why?

Because it’s annoying. And it feels like a hurtful criticism when I’m trying my best.

Does the stranger remember it?

No. Of course not.

Because to them it’s just a fly-away comment.

This week on High Five Friday, I rant about what I’d say to that random stranger, if I had the nerve.

    I hope you enjoyed my conversation with Business Coach and Let’s Conquer Motherhood member Jessica Fearnley as much as I did. What did you think about what Jessica had to say about life with a baby? What was it like for you? Can you relate? I’d love to know. Lisa x
