Constant judgement from others leaves parents feeling like failures when babies are small. A new survey finds that parents notice a negative comment about their parenting four times a day.
The top judgement behaviours range from negative comments behind a parent’s back to stolen stares and whispers.
The survey found that parents are judged mostly based on what they buy for their kids and who parents are as a person.
Parents are being judged the most by strangers in public, grandparents and even friends on a daily basis.
Parents believe that the judging has gotten worse since the start of the pandemic. And all this judgement has left parents with all kinds of emotions!
