I judge parents....

Okay I have to admit it. I have trouble with judging others parenting skills. Like I know that I'm no where near the perfect parent and my kids are not perfect either. But I get soooooo frustrated when I see other parents making what I see as massive mistakes with their kids. And then they get annoyed when their kids play up all the time. Argh! One particular pet peeve is parents who don't monitor what their children watch on TV. Especially The Simpsons. My kids have never been allowed to watch that show. It may be funny but it teaches kids so many bad habits. Don't parents realise that a lot of their kids habits are gained by what they watch. I don't know. I really don't like being judgemental about this because I know it's wrong to be that way but it's so hard.

I used to struggle with that also,until I had kids. I found out how hard it can be. Now I look for ways to encourage them. Parenting has got to be the hardest job ever. In the end, I think that kids pretty much turn out like their parents, the good and the bad. YIKES!

I do try to encourage other parents and definately don't actually critise their parenting. I just get frustrated well I get left dealing with their kids. ie. friends of my kids visiting. It's hard when they expect me to be like their parents and I'm not. I figure it my house my rules.
