Poor mom...

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

     I find it pretty sad that when this horrible shooting occured at the batman movie, people are now bashing the young mom who brought her baby to the movie theatre. Like she was supposed to know there was going to be a shooting! I feel like people are so judgemental, I personally would not have taken my son to the movies at midnight at four months old, but just because she did that does not mean she is a bad mom! What since he was out past what they think his bed time is she is not a good mother? It's not like she brought her baby to a bar, and I'm sure her baby probably was just sleeping through the movie & would have left if he was upset. Somehow after all the tragedy the parents have witnessed they have still responded very classy to the rude comments about them bringing the baby to the movies, good for them. People need to let them grieve from the horrible tragedy, not bash them for bringing their baby to a movie theater. Geeeesh!

I know when we were at an outdoor carnival three explosions went off, smallones, we thought it was gunfire, my dh covered our twins with his body, he didnt throw them aside and head for the car

No one actually knows how they'd behave when the adrenaline kicks in and they respond out of panic while in a fight or flight mode.  People say "I would such and such" and the fact is, they really don't know that.

However, I absolutely do find bringing an infant or toddler to a midnight screening of a film to be extraordinarily poor parenting for a variety of reasons.

Which means that he learned how he responded on that particular day at that particular time.

 I'm not willing to bash anyone from that tragedy. Period.

I haven't taken any of my boys to the movies at midnight.. but I have taken my oldest to a midnight game release. He's 9 now, but the first time I took him, he was 6. (I'd take my other two, but they aren't into games as much so they wouldn't like it. ) 

Does that make me a bad parent too?

Wow I didn't even know that guy did that, that is horrrrrrible!! I just think the mom getting told she is a bad mom for bringing her baby to a movie theater is a little much, that's all.

I can't see how anyone could defend him. If it was my husband, he'd be g-o-n-e.

The only thing that was a bad decision in this situation was the father just "placing" his son down and getting the hell out of dodge without his family. And not staying outside to make sure his family was okay.

I know I held and breastfed my DSs like 24-7 for what like a year straight, lol, so it did not matter if I was at home, or the store, or the movie, I was parenting DS about the same.

Of course my children would have screamed the whole time as well . . . But that's a different issue, haha.
