Do You Know One of These Annoying Facebook Moms?

Slide 2

The "Patronizer"


"Oh, you're tired because you couldn't sleep last night? Wait until you have kids!" "You think your job is stressful? Wait until you have kids!" "Wait until you have kids — then you'll know the real meaning of love!"

Yes, parenting adds a whole new dimension to a lot of emotions and feelings, but that doesn't mean child-less people are unable to feel anything, or that they "don't understand." Anyone can be tired, jobs can be stressful, people can be over-extended, and love is a real emotion for everyone. Trivializing the lives and emotions of those who don't have kids or share the same experiences will only come across as condescending and smug. Everyone deserves a little empathy!
