Woman Calls Mothers Who Shop For Kid’s Shoes At Kmart Disgusting!

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?

  1. Store branded products are manufactured by major manufacturers of well known brands. Provided you know the child’s correct size (these might be a 2nd pair of shoes so you know the size you need) and they fit the child correctly. A school age child should be able to tell you if shoes are comfortable (feel nice). Check they have no hard ridges in them – that applies to expensive ones too. Try more than one pair one. One may fit better than the other.
    Let your child walk within shoe dept in them to see if they can walk in them Ok etc.
    When you buy professionally fitted shoes observe how they check for length of toes in them etc.

  2. The post was probably not from an adult at all but from one of those ‘feral kids’ that her parents bought her KMART shoes and not the latest, most stylish of school shoes!!
