I am a new mom to an adopted son who is 2 and I think skipping the whole baby stage as made me an even bigger target for criticism from family, friends and even strangers. How do I not let it get to me?!!? I constantly get comments on how shy my son is, how he shouldn't be, how I should do this, that whatever. I know all parents get it but I am just not dealing with it well and I really need advice. I hope that with time I will become more secure with my parenting especially since we haven't had our son that long. However on top of that I am pregnant and I am now getting criticism for wanting to breast feed! How do I get through this in the mean time?Answer Question

First off, your family should not criticize you for having a shy son. OF COURSE he's going to be shy. He is 2 and in this NEW LIFE. You need to tell your family to MIND THEIR BUSINESS. Get nasty if you have to, for they don't seem to mind being nasty towards you.
