HOT TOPIC: SHOULD PARENTING SKILLS BE CRITIQUED?
We’ve all done it. We see a mother or father let their 2-year-old walk in the street and we go to questioning their ability to parent. “What kind of mom lets her child do that?…Why didn’t he hold her hand,” are just a few things we verbalize to friends or family who may be nearby. But is it right?
Kim Kardashian doesn’t think so. She recently lashed out at one of her Twitter followers for questioning her parental skills, calling them ignorant and giving the rundown of how she balances motherhood with her social life. “U sound so ignorant,” tweeted the star. “Bc I don’t tweet or instagram my every move w my daughter means I am not with her 247? We share what we want. Or is it bc I go support my fiance at every show & I post pix? When the baby goes down 4 bed or a nap, parents are allowed 2 work & support each other, maybe even have fun too.”
Kardashian faced criticism a few weeks back when a family friend told Radar Online that the star was bored with motherhood.”Kim loves being a mom and spending all of her time with the baby. But she’s really bored,” said the source. “She misses going out all the time to shop or eat and have people in public fawn all over her.”
