I’ve had it with people judging other moms’ choices about how to parent their kids.

It’s one thing for a family member or a close friend to say something, although this is usually frustrating too; but it’s something completely different when people you’ve never met decide to chime in on your parenting.

I just stumbled upon an article that said “Kelly Clarkson is being accused of child abuse.”

I’m not gonna lie, my heart sank for her.  I don’t know Kelly, but I do enjoy her music, and I’ve followed her story for years now.  She seems like one of the most genuine and down to earth celebrities out there.  My first thought was, what the heck?!  My Kelly Clarkson, this is insane?!  I had to read this article and get to the bottom of this since I knew this was a load of BS.

Want to know why people were saying such a horrific thing about this mom?!

Sit down, you’ll need to for this one.  Ready?!  She fed her 2 year old a piece of bread with Nutella on it.  Yep, that’s it.  What the….??!  This is one of the most absurd things I’ve ever read.  I actually feel like I wasted a good five minutes of my life from reading this article.

People need to stop trolling social media.

I get it.  Many people have no sympathy for this.  They think “she’s a celebrity, she put her life in the public eye for others to judge.”  Well I think that mentality is ludicrous. She’s a mom. She’s allowed to raise her kids how she sees fit, and no one else really has a right to judge this. I have seen FAR worse things from moms at the zoo, or moms on reality television, and never once have I thought it would be a good idea to bash them on the internet or really anywhere.

Stop judging others who you think won’t even read your comments.  People read them and some might take them to heart.  If you don’t know the whole story, then I’d suggest minding your own business.

I’m willing to bet a lot of the people calling “feeding your kid Nutella” child abuse, most likely gave their kids chocolate at Easter or might have visited a drive thru for a quick meal last week.  Enough.

Somehow I am not surprised about this which makes me so frustrated.

Pretty sure I lived on white bread, Fritos, Pepsi, and Snickers most of my adolescent life.  I turned out okay, and I don’t think anyone shamed my parents.  Our generation has gone a little too far.  Anyone who knows me knows I try to feed my kids healthy food, and I do the best I can.  Do they request “Old McDonalds” from time to time or beg me for dessert on a daily basis?  Of course.  They are kids and I can choose to feed them whatever I want, whenever I want, without having to worry about someone calling DCFS on me.

Kelly, you’re a great mom I’m sure.  (I’d actually love for you to adopt me!)  Hopefully you know the majority of people find all of this as ridiculous as I do.  Keep posting those adorable kids and showing the world that moms are a lot more alike than they are different.

Spread love people, life is too short to be a troll.
