The only fail I see is there aren’t cup holders on the float with beers in them! I’m joking!!!!!! Lol! But ya… epic fail. It’s obviously not just for a picture; there’s a blanket and everything!
I can’t look at your posts like this. I Starr to have anxiety.
Hopefully this baby is “pool safe” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v0mUPr68x2U
I think the actual fail that could be taken from this is that it’s just a photo. There is no story behind it. You have NO idea if there was a mom or dad, tending to a fussy baby, or baby was playing on the float, while being pushed along by their parent until they just fell asleep. You dont know what happened before OR after this picture was snapped.
I actually wonder how many photos we each have that could be judged as a PARENTING FAIL because the only context they are in is a position in our FB timeline.
If there is a story that goes along with the photo, Im game to read it. If it’s poor parenting, then by all means, call it that. If theres no story or the story isn’t what is being portrayed here, then what a craptastic thing to do by posting it here like this to be passed around the internet.
I really really think it’s a pretty irresponsible thing to judge other peoples parenting based on a simple photo. There are people – families – behind pics like this.
It COULD be considered a pretty substantial parenting fail to raise a child in an atmosphere of judgment rather than being smart enough to ask questions and finding out the story before deciding someone is a failure at anything. So, I guess it could be safe for me to say you’re a pretty crappy parent based on all the parenting fails that come across my newsfeed from Daddy Fishkins. Fortunately, I am smart enough to not separate this ONE moment in time from everything else I get from DF’s page.
I like Daddy Fishkins. The Parenting Fail portion of the page makes me super uncomfortable and sort of sad. I realize I “Dont have to follow the page”, but hopefully everyone else remembers I am also “Allowed to express my opinion” when they decide if they want to reply to this comment. Parenting is a pretty big job. It can be pretty hard. Other parents, that know these two facts, should probably be more responsible with how they go about passing judgment on other parents with little to no details.
I sincerely hope the parent just wanted to snap a quick picture and then moved the baby to a pallet indoors, or to her Pack-n-Play. That gives me anxiety just looking at it!
