Why do people judge others, whether its from parenting to lifestyles to race to size to orgin. Does it make you feel good inside to judge other people for how they live.
Why do other parents judge other parents on how they raise their kids? Is it wrong that everyone parents different from breastfeeding to formula feeding to letting your child have a binky to letting them suck their thumb to the time they put their child to bed and what time their child wakes up to what we feed our children. Does it make you a better mother when you judge other parents. Parents who breastfeed arent bad mothers, parents who formual feed arent bad mothers either and arent neglecting their kids by choosin formula we are given that choice. Parents who let their child have a binky until they are 2-3 or even older arent bad parents either, parents who let their child suck their thumb arent bad parents either. Parents who put their child to bed between 6-8 arent bad parents and neither are parents who let theri children fall asleep when they are tired arent bad parents. Parents who kids get up at 6-8 in the morning arent bad parents and parents who kids sleep until 9-11 in the morning arent bad parents either. Why does it matter to much and why judge others.
Why do people judge others by their size whether they are really skinny or really obese? Why does it matter the size of their clothes? It should only matter whats on the inside. Just because you are really skinny, skinny, average, over weight or obese doesnt mean that that person isnt a really nice person on the inside.
Why do people judge others that are "gay", "special needs", they are just like everyone else just a little different. If some one is "gay" that does not make them a bad person because they are in love with someone who is the same sex as they are. Let face it "gay"men are the most fasionable people and you can always count on them to tell you the truth on what looks good and what doesnt. Some one with "special needs" isnt a bad person either they just may need a little extra help and most of them are just as sweet as you or I are or can be.
Ive been judge as a mother because I let my daughter who is 2 go to sleep anywhere between 11-12 at night and wake up between 11-12 in the morning, because I formula fed my daughter and didnt breastfeed because my fiance and I arent a fan of breastfeeding, I have NOTHING wrong with mother who do and I have many friends who breastfeed. Because I let her have a binky and let her have it attached to her for when ever she needs or wants it. I say when she is done teething I will take it away. I let my daughter have free roam of our house and she has her tv on all day whether she sits in her room and watches it o runs around the house and is just listening to her wiggles. Ive been told I copy people because our kids are the same age and do the same things or I want to sign my daughter up for things their kids are or were or may be doing. None of these things make me a bad mother nor does it make anyone else a bad mother if they do the opposite or simialar. It just goes to show that no 2 parents are going to parent the same, they may have similairities but doesn make them bad parents.
So why do people judge others so much? Does it make you feel better as a person? Tell me what you all think. I want to know how others feel about judgemental people.
