Do you know anyone like this?
I have a lot of friends on fb (that I know in real life I don't add people I don't know) but anyhow besides the point, They just became moms a few months ago some have under a year under their belt yet they have ALL the answers. It Bothers me sometimes It see it like this....I would never tell a mother of triplets or a mother who has a child older than mine anything. I mean how the hell would I know lol. I haven't reached those years and don't have the same number of kids so how or why would their opinion or advice help me....I obviously know I do not have to take it but when I new mom tries to talk about stuff they have no clue about I find it a little annoying....am I alone?
I wanted to add that I never said new moms were clueless obviously though as a new parent we do not know everything but we are knowledgeable enough to figure things out. Like myself I figured things out as I went because yes every child and family is different I guess it is the new moms that think a cookie will kill a kid or juice will immediately rot their teeth out lol. Moms who act snobby are the ones that bother me!
Also another thing is adivce is great when asked for it I hate being TOLD something without asking for it though. That is all I was really meaning. I know good advice can come from anywhere but the point is I am more for letting parents parent no one else.
To the mom who was a teacher with a psychology degree that is usually how I respond to people asking for advice from me with a "well they probably act that way because....." I am always being asked from family and friends for advice on kids, life and relationships I guess I possess that quality but I hate to say anything because I am no expert and no matter how much I have done or been through it does not mean I have all the answers!
