  • Secretly, yes. I think of myself as a good mother and it would hurt me if others thought otherwise.

  • I just care what the people close to me think. Random strangers I could care less about.

  • Not really. I'm pretty confident in myself as a parent.

  • Nope...because I know I'm doing a good job especially with all the challenges we have (hard-of-hearing, patching eye, glasses, facial paralysis, BOR syndrome.) You may see me yell at my kid in public but i DARE someone to say something to me about it! I get bashed all the time in the store or just out in about b/c my i didn't teach my son sign language! Well i say ' He has a voice and he can use it!' But no I don't care :)

  • not really. I have strong beliefs and so does my DH and we agree on them. outside of him or maybe my parents, I couldn't care less.

  • I shouldn't, but I sort of do. Not enough to change my parenting philosophies a lot, but it does hurt my feelings if someone is overly critical.

  • Only my son.
