No matter what you do, people are going to judge you. It’s the culture we live in right now. There’s this overwhelming expectation that everyone needs to be perfect at everything they do.
- Kids play sports? They have to win, and nothing less will do. If they don’t, something must be wrong with the coach.
- Your kid watches TV? Well mine doesn’t, and I don’t think yours should either. You must be a bad parent.
- Your kid doesn’t do well in school? Well it must be the teacher’s fault, because there certainly can’t be anything wrong with the child.
- What do you mean your kid is struggling with health problems? Since I can’t tell they have health problems in the two minutes I’ve known them, they must be fine!
