ARG. If your a parent then you know the questions, suggestions and judgment never really seems to end. Well, damned if you do, damned if you don’t.. Women, mothers especially, are extra sensitive to the perceptions of others. It doesn’t matter what we do or how we do it – someone will always have an (often unsolicited) opinion on the choices we make.
