Oh i know a mother like that,she just cant admit that her child also makes mistakes. I find that saf,if you cant admit that your child is just a child. Not an angel. My son isnt perfect,i try my best to teach him the right ways,but he sometimes does things that arent good,and thats where i as a parent guide him to do the right thing. And not ignore it and act like my child NEVER does something wrong. I wonder why that mother i know acts like that..its ALWAYS the other kids fault,her child "never" makes a mistake.

I'm going to admit, that as a high school teacher, I do judge some parents because they have totally fucked up their kids. I sometimes find myself saying "If that was my kid....." But then, if that was my kid, the kid wouldn't be that way.

If you care so much about how these people are judging you, raise your kids to please them.
Honestly, I don't see why it matters what they think of you or your kids unless you're trying to impress them....and if you need to impress them, like I said, raise your kids to please them.
I don't care what other people think of me or the way I raise my kid, so I raise him to please himself, but not at the expense of others.

Some parents are just really proud. They don't mean to brag and make their kids sound perfect. Watching a child grow and mature and master new things is really exciting.
Some parents have a lot of self doubt. They try to make their kids sound perfect because they're trying to convince themselves that their kids are okay.
And It's really difficult to not judge other parents at times. We've been judged a lot! I try not to judge people for judging us though. Just because something works for our family doesn't make it easy for other people to understand. I don't look to other parents for assurance that we're doing right for our kids though. I look to our kids.
