I live my life in constant fear that people won't judge me. What would a person do if they couldn't comment on something I was doing wrong while out and about with my three kids? Live a very dull life, obviously.
Some of the best parenting advice I've received has been from random strangers on the street. Things like,
"Cover her head!"
"You need to put socks on them!"
"He [pointing at Andrew] really needs to stop sucking those fingers."
"If my son ran out in the street, I'd spank his bum."
"Why do you let your daughter talk to you like that?"
And other priceless gems. Which is why I've decided to write a parenting book. I think I'll call it, Street Parenting: How Advice from Random Strangers Saved My Children. I'll even write it like it's a rap song. Here's a snippet:
Now here's a book all about how
Strangers can advise your parenting now
I'd like to take a minute so sit right
And I'll tell you all about how to become
the parent of the year
Do you think if I pitched it right I could get Snoop Dogg in on this?
