It’s not just other parents it’s family members with kids. I absolutely love it when they tell me how difficult their little “Jonny” is to manage. And how they manage him, and that is how we should manage our boy. They have no clue what we are dealing with. A great clueless one recently was from in-laws who don’t get that my son won’t eat and just tell me he is being difficult and I should do xxxxx. I have tried everything and I mean everything. My little one has ADHD, Dyspraxia and a chromosome disorder. I would love him to be as they call it difficult and needing a bit of discipline, we walk on egg shells every day. Oh and how smug they are about how good parents they are and that we clearly are doing a bad job. … lol rant!!!!
