parenting: not as hard as you think!

And just about the time you become overwhelmed with uncertainty about being a parent, and start second guessing your ability to raise a child, you see something like this, and suddenly you dont feel so bad. Does Hot Topic have a baby registry? I almost waited to post this on Halloween, but i think that takes away from the realism of this picture. That, and i have a feeling it wasnt taken on Halloween. 😦

    Your not even close to funny. Just close minded.

    wow talk about judgemental. Just because someone has a different style in clothes means they won’t be a good parent? that’s just ridiculous. If they are happy with the way they look and are a good parent then let them be and maybe that’s not even their kid. maybe it’s their siblings. Don’t be so quick to judge a book by their cover.

    Goths can have kids too…and the ones I know who have kids are fantastic parents.Maybe don’t be so judgemental.

    Are you implying that a goth is more prone to being a bad parent? Your shallow lack of intelligence is just more apparent by saying such things.

    I know we all have seen pictures that make us feel better about how we are doing something, but I don’t consider this picture one to make me feel better about parenting.
    There is nothing in this picture to make me worry over the child. He is clean, well fed, doesn’t look abused, and looks well taken care of. Not to mention, the living area looks fantastic. There are no stains on anything. The furniture, rug, and walls look well kept. I don’t see any astrays or beer bottles on the end table.
    So should we strive to be a Stepford Wife, and concentrate on stereotyping? Or strive to raise our children, healthy, happy, and unafraid to be who they are?

    Mothers are mothers. No matter what we look like, it doesn’t take away the ability to care for and love our babies. Get a life.
