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.
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.
