In a recent interview with BabyCenter Uma Thurman admitted that not only is she guilty of being corrected in public by another parent, but she has also broken the cardinal rule of parenthood and called another parent out in public.
She says of the times she’s been called out, ”It’s horrible.”
But she also couldn’t help herself on a recent occasion. She revealed,
“I saw this father lifting his kid up by the arm the other day and I thought…’I know that’s why I have lifelong shoulder problems. Somebody thought it was fun and I probably was laughing, meanwhile for the rest of my life I have to go to the chiropractor. I bit my lip and thought ‘Don’t say anything’ but then I saw him pick her up again by the arm so I said to him quietly, ‘You know you can cause damage to the rotator cuff accidentally?’ Then I thought, ‘I’m such a creep!’”
Do you think it’s okay to correct other parents? Have you ever been called out by another parent?
