The Platinum Jubilee of Prince Louis draws criticism – SheKnows

I would like to start this post by extending our heartfelt congratulations to all Ideal Parents there from 4 years They are straight and obedient every time they go out in public. If that’s you, cool – now enjoy becoming a millionaire by spreading these parenting secrets via some sort of guide to the rest of us with less behaved kids.


If you haven’t already figured it out, I’m referring to (very sarcastically) to Prince Louis“Typical behaviors of children in the Platinum Jubilee Queen Contest… and the people who come for parenthood. More specifically, Kate Middleton; Don’t get me started on how the wrong mom always looks.

“I hate when people make excuses for young children’s bad behavior. Children are smart, they understand, and they know when to act,” says one Pearl-cling commentator, after finishing it, “Kate better collect it as a parent.”

“Wonderful. She is clearly not very involved in raising this child,” another judges, while a third says, “Why not use all those years of early childhood ‘experience?’”

Was our little prince Louis’ behavior less than ideal? surely. But let’s break down the bazillion’s possible reasons why he was serving sass (and stop making judgments when we’re at it, okay?).

First of all, it is barely 4; His birthday was at the end of April, so Kate and William still practically had a “newbie” on their hands. Babies this age are not exactly famous for their socially acceptable behavior. Second, he spent the weekend dragging him from place to place for the festivities where he was expected to sit still and keep quiet– very Great request for a very young boy. Who knows if he missed a nap or was hungry? If you’ve ever given birth to a toddler, you know that even the smallest change in routine can cause some babies to fall into a state of complete inversion. More importantly, this is a snapshot of a small time frame, not the way he behaves all day every day.

Even “Supernanny” Joe Frost, known for her serious approach to misconduct, agreed, saying In an Instagram post“I think little Prince Louis has acted wonderfully during the whole weekend of great fanfare! All that sitting, watching and organizing, most kids can’t sit in their chairs at the dining table for more than 15 minutes. They definitely should [have] It was beautifully overwhelming for this little class especially with no time to play between the long days. Kids will be tested, one should expect that way.”

As someone who has seen four little boys during the 4 year old phase, I can say with some authority that this is literally what 4 year old boys are an act. And since there are some unwritten rules that say this, they almost always do it when you’re trying to get them to act (and while you’re watching people…and judging them).

Also, can we take some time to put ourselves in Kate Middleton’s designer shoes? She’s not just an ordinary mom trying to get a 4-year-old through Target without passing judgment on some Karen; She is a royal mother in a much-anticipated public event with the eyes of the entire world on her. Imagine the barbs you would receive if you opened an app or recorded a YouTube video to keep him calm and busy, or even threw him some fruit snacks or goldfish crackers — parenting techniques that any other mom is allowed to keep in the public arsenal. She is a mother whose young son is constantly expected to act in a way that is frankly beyond his ability. And then when he doesn’t do it “her fault”.

But she is not allowed to lose her strength or make a threat like an ordinary mother, because that would be unbecoming of a future queen. The most she can do is grit her teeth a little or raise an eyebrow imperceptibly. I bet the last dollar you got in this picture, it’s sending a message to Prince William with her eyes like “You’d better bring that baby.”

And if you say you’ve never drawn this face to your child before, then you are So He lies. Any mom can recognize the look of “I’m trying to keep it together in public, but my patience has been tested”.

Prince Louis is too young to understand his legacy, the standing of his family, or the significance of the Platinum Jubilee. He’s a little kid who gets bored to death with the busy adult activities and reacts like any other toddler in this situation. The only difference is that there are millions of critics watching – they just love to chime in with their kids Start.

Duchess Kate, keep doing what you want. You are more balanced and patient than most 4-year-old moms in this situation. And Prince Louis, please, continue to be you… because in a world of rigid expectations, you are a breath of fresh air.

All times Princess Charlotte She proved to be the queen of sass.
