I saw a post this morning on facebook. It was not a nice post. I know there are millions of them out there, but this one really got my back up. I agree with the arguement that the administrator is trying to demonstrate. But I do not agree with the way she and her friends are going about it. The post got me thinking about the two different approaches to the different situations we come across in society. The facebook page, was set up to act as judge and juror, apparently naming and shaming terrible mums. But what gives any of these girls the right to pass that judgement? What exactly are they teaching there own children by acting in this way? As I have already said, I agree that there are some situations where by action is needed, but I am not sure how naming and shaming them, and basically having a one sided slanging match is really going to help anybody. Are we now creating a generation of children that will grow up believing that they possess the power to judge anybody around them as unfit. Will we end up with a generation of children who no longer know how to offer support, how to be empathic? Are we already there? We are all guilty of making mistakes in life, some mistakes are far bigger than others. The person in question has lost herself in a world of drink and drugs, action in regards to her parenting skills has occured. None of the girls who are judging her, can truely say I know how she feels each morning, I know why she is the way she is…….but they all feel worthy of judging and condeming her. What if one day, they screw up, they turn to drink and drugs, im sure they believe they would never do it, it couldnt happen to them, they are amazing, but what if it did. Im not saying that the person in the post is in the right, far from, im just saying we shouldnt be so judgemental of those around us. You never know if your own life might end up crumbling around your feet.
