Eddie Got Parent Shamed For Giving Baby iPhone At Dinner Table


Eddie and his family recently went out to a restaurant for a family dinner. His wife and their four children were all sitting at a table together when a stranger parent-shamed them.

The kids were all eating as well as Eddie and his wife and the baby started to get fussy. So they handed the baby their iPhone so he'd calm down for long enough that the rest of the family could finish their meals with some peace and quiet. That's when Eddie heard another parent, sitting at a table near them with their partner and baby, shame Eddie and his wife for giving the baby an iPhone. He heard the woman say "I hate when people give babies phones."

Eddie didn't end up confronting the woman, but it did really upset him that someone felt the need to parent shame a stranger.
