Each parent has the right to raise their child how they choose. I am very much in support of that because barring they’re raising them to be murderers diversity is what makes the world so interesting and beautiful. That being said there are some basic safety issues that can really cause some controversy between parents- friends and strangers.
An example: My friend had posted a picture of her child while he was sleeping in his car seat and the top chest clip was down more towards his stomach and someone made a friendly comment about raising it up for safety reasons and she was very upset. She was venting to me about and and said that she took the picture down and doesn’t post any of them in their car seats anymore. I understood her annoyance but I must say I agreed with the mom who posted the comment. I think it’s related to my ER experience as a nurse and having seen so many preventable accidents involving children.
I have had opportunities to suggest some helpful information to other parents but am hesitant to do so fearing they may be offended. I know that I myself typically take things like that well but I have been annoyed from time to time.
