You get it.  I get it.  We all get it.

Since no parent is immune to the phenomenon of unsolicited parenting advice, how do we handle it?

I’ll tell you what I do, if you clicky right here

How to you handle unsolicited parenting advice?


  1. Unfortunately, everyone has an opinion these days on practically everything… Especially parenting. A lot of people like to be unique with naming a child or even parenting children. Too bad others can’t allow them the same right they had. This unsolicited parenting advice was around when they had kids and i’m sure they didn’t appreciate it, so why do it?

  2. Mommyfriend says:

    So awful!  I’ve been told on more than a dozen occassions that BooBoo has a dog’s name.  Nice…

  3. I remember when a grandmother type asked why I’d named my baby Max because it was a dog’s name. I was flabbergasted and said nothing. Later, I wish I replied that I named him after my newly dead father who had just died of brain cancer. Aren’t people funny?

  4. Mommyfriend says:

    Jean, you crack me up!  I totally know the feeling of wanting to scream though, believe me!

  5. You are much better than me. I sometimes fly off the handle, yelling, screaming, and waving my arms frantically. I hate people telling me what to do ever, let alone as a parent, especially one with special needs. BUT, I will “keep what you said in mind!” Ha! You like how I did that?!
