It depends who it is. My single, childless friends sometimes try to give parenting advice and I just kind of laugh or nod a smile politely and think just wait. When any other moms (young or old), try to give me advice when I didn't ask for it, then I get annoyed.

I don't give advice unless they ask me. We are all participating in this great experiment called parenting. My way works for my kids. I will tell you my successes and failures if you are interested, but I don't tell people how to do it "right". I don't want someone telling me I am too strict, too lenient, too easy, too tough, or anything else. If they aren't careful, they will find themselves with a kid to raise. If you think you can do it better, here, take him, raise him yourself. Oh, no!? Then, shut up!
