Meghan King Edmonds is under fire after posting a selfie on Instagram Stories with the caption, “This angel found a melatonin gummy in mama’s purse leftover from our flight.” The ex “Real Housewives of Orange County” star was referencing her three-year-old daughter Aspen, who fell asleep after eating the gummy.
When you’re a parent, it seems everyone has an opinion on what you’re doing and when. Teen Mom’s Kailyn Lowry recently encountered some unsolicited advice from a Twitter follower about her son, 2, not yet being potty-trained (though it must be pointed out that the average age children are potty-trained is between 18 months and 3 years of age).
As parents, we’re all hard enough on ourselves, so it certainly doesn’t help to be shamed when sharing sweet moments of one’s child. We’re wrapping up the year by looking back at all the times celebrity moms were publicly slammed for everything from their children’s hair to their own wine consumption (insert eye roll here). Maybe, just maybe, we can all go a little easier on hardworking moms in 2020.
