i just answered a question regarding "looking down on mothers if they smoke". i was utterly outraged to say the least,ragarding some peoples comments on the subject..some people openly admit that they "judge" any mother who smokes pregnant or not!! who the hell do you mothers think you are???.i am a mother,pregnant and yes i smoke! you have never walked a day in my shoes but yet you think you think you can judge me? just because mothers smoke doesnt mean we cant care for our kids...i can quite happily say that my kids are well looked after,have respect for me and everyone else,i dont tolerate my kids ruling the household,my kids do as they are told,they never go without anything,they are healthy and happy and the opinions from some people are not valid!!!
i understand that smoking while pregnant can cause fetal growth problems etc,and yes i have had 2 small babies but i tried my hardest to stop smoking while pregnant but i failed....time and time again.....i dont smoke in front of my kids but yes i smoked while pregnant...i dont judge anyone who does things they shouldnt unless you can see clearly that the child is suffering because of it......my kids dont get fed sweets,fizzy drinks..they have perfect teeth and everyone always has a compliment regarding my skills as a mother so to all those mothers who judge smoking parents...get a grip!! i bet your lives arent that bloody perfect! i bet you have did things that your not proud of so before you judge anyone else,take a look at your own lives and maybe make sum changes,starting with your attitudes....just because you dont agree with someone doing something,doesnt make them a bad person!
i have worked with kids for 10 years and have did a great job healping mums and dads practically raise their children.giving advice and being there for them...just because i smoke doesnt mean i have no brain cells!!!!
sorry for the outburst but i had to get that off my chest!!!
