I try and stay away from other parents as a rule, as if I am totally honest I really don't give a crap about their kids and I really don't want to hear about them. There are, of course, exceptions to this rule: the parents who don't place their kids on a pedestal and worship the ground they walk on all the time whilst making them believe they are they centre of the universe - the parents who don't do this are ok in my books.
Yes, I try and stay away from those parents who are responsible for the upcoming generation of self indulgent, egotistical brats.
These parents bore me yet amuse me at the same time. The say "Oh, Lilly Mae - boring kid who's a nightmare and everyone hates - Rose, will never, ever *insert here *
*insert here * common examples:
*use a dummy *
*eat chocolate *
*drink alcohol *
*hang with the wrong crowd *
*be anything but vegan *
*be a bully *
*fail subjects at school *
Well, who actually knows if any of these things you believe will be true. The only fact we know is that your kid is an asshole that thinks the world revolves around them.
Well, people probably think they crave attention and are emotionally stunted (I don't post how 'blessed' I am to have them and how 'proud' I am off them on a daily basis on social media).
Maybe they are. After all the apple doesn't fall far from the tree
