Why do people criticize other people's parenting if it really isn't hurting anything?

Some people are so damning if you didn't do it the way they did.
For all you cafemoms I don't care if.....
you sleep with your baby or baby is in a crib
breastfeed or formula, you don't have to explain why either way
your kid wears diapers in the front yard,
Your kid isn't potty trained by 18 mos and speaking French!

I do know you all love those babies. Keep doing what you do mommas! You are great! Do what works for ya! Support each other.

    All choices are not equal and the choices mothers make impact their child and society. We pay for the bottle fed baby in formula costs and future health care costs for the mother and child.

    Because in the long run, we care how your baby turns out even if you don't. And I agree with Gailll.

  • And you two ladies will spend your time bitter and annoyed over things you can't control. Perfect example. Never agree to disagree.

  • I totally agree, it seems that no matter what a parent does, if they are trying to do their best there is always something wrong with what they do. I say relax and do the best you can. I raised four of my younger sisters with no help from my drunk parents and five children, and now one of my grand daughters, and i promise that i have been told so many times that what i do i am doing wrong, but at least i am doing it.
