This is one open letter you must read

It’s so easy to pass quick judgement when you see another parent with their child, isn’t it? We all do it, and while we all know better, sometimes we just make assumptions when we really have no business doing so.

We might roll our eyes at the child having a full blown melt down at the grocery store, not realizing that maybe he has a developmental disability, or silently criticize a mother for snapping at her rambunctious toddler while waiting in line at the bank, not realizing she was up all night with a sick child.

We don’t know everyone’s situation in life, which is why it’s important to try to be kind and keep our opinions to ourselves, because sometimes innocent seeming comments can hurt someone more than you know.

Mom Kelly Dirkes recently addressed a woman in an open post on Facebook who told her she was ‘spoiling’ her baby after seeing her wearing her baby at a local Target.



A woman who was accused of ‘spoiling’ her child for carrying her in a Target store instead of putting her in the cart wrote a now viral response.
