Woman Calls Mothers Who Shop For Kid’s Shoes At Kmart Disgusting!
I love when people without kids make huge statements about being a parent. You know the kind. The ones who say…my child will never use an iPad. Or ‘when we have children they will only watch TV every second Tuesday for half an hour.’ Yeah, ok. Come back to me when you’re throwing the ipad at your screaming toddler in the hopes of being able to gulp some hot coffee down before it goes stone cold! Come back to me then. Only then can we talk!
Here’s another beauty for you. A woman, sans children, has taken to Facebook page Aussie Banter to voice her disgust at mothers who choose to buy shoes for their kids at Kmart. In fact she’s so disgusted by this putrid act that she says they shouldn’t even have kids!
“I see this every day! Pathetic mummies sending their feral brats to school with no name Kmart shoes with no considerations for your child’s feet,” she wrote.
“It’s putrid and irresponsible if you can’t afford proper sic fitted shoes you should be forced to do parenting and money management courses, instead of blowing all your money on crap from afterpay.”
The outrage continued with the woman publicly declaring her children (when she’s blessed to have any) will “only have the best of everything”.
“I will love and care for my child unlike you feral scabby excuses for parents and I know how to manage money.”
Reddit user ijak6 shared the post to the discussion forum which unsurprisingly angered MANY, MANY parents.
“Just a snobby moron. Forget the fact that kids grow out of shoes after six months, odds are the name brand shoes and the Kmart shoes are produced in the same factory,” one person said.
While another added, “Nothing like a non parent telling other parents how to raise their kids.”
Exactly! I’m not here to sing the praises of Kmart shoes nor am I here to judge mums who do. All I know is that mums are doing the best they can for their kids regardless of where they buy their shoes from. We should be less concerned with critiquing women’s parenting skills especially when that criticism comes from someone with no kids. Someone who hasn’t had to balance a family budget that includes school fees, swimming lessons, school uniforms and school shoes. It’s very easy to make assumptions and judgments on people if you yourself have never walked in their shoes.
What do you think? Does this woman have a point or not?
