j is for judge not

Judge not, children other than your own: Resist the tendency among some parent groups to criticise other people's children. It is often just a veneer for nagging self doubt.

I'd love to judge other people's children. On second thoughts, I would like to be able to just observe what other children do.

But to be frank, I'm too busy stopping my child from empting out the pantry, taking all the paper off the toilet roll, pulling leftover breakfast all over him from the dining room table, turning the inside of my bathroom cupboard into a drum set, pick up all the toys strewn all over the floor, trying to finish a conversation - any conversation, while my child pulls every tissue out of its box...

How about you?

The A-Z of Parenting Tips were inspired by this article in the Courier Mail.


  1. Oh Kym, more evidence to why I asked you the question about reading minds... You speak the words that I feel. I love reading your blog, even if to know that someone else is having the same issues I am having.

  2. Hehehe Bek... so true! I think we're definitely at the same stage with our kids. Gosh they are nuisances sometimes. (Lucky they're so adorable hey?)


Thank you for your thoughtful and positive words and taking the time to comment. Love Kymmie. xx
