For many, parents posting update after update about their children on Facebook can become annoying. One woman in Australia became so fed up with her friend’s constant updates that she decided to take it upon herself to make it stop.
The woman sent the doting mother — identified only as Jade — a scathing letter, demanding that she stop posting so many updates on her daughter. “Look we all have kids that we are besotted with — guess what — every parent thinks their child is the best,” the letter read. “But we don't ram it down everyone else's neck!!! She wears a new outfit — well take a photo and send it PRIVATELY to the person who gave it to her — not to everyone!!!”
The woman explained that she wasn’t the only one who’d become fed up with the constant posting. According to her letter, she and “a few of the girls” got together to vent about their shared annoyance. Though she clarified that she thought the daughter was “gorgeous,” the marathon posting was “pissing a lot of people off.”
“We all thought it might ease off after the first month, but it hasn't,” the woman said. “Not everyone is as interested as you are about what (deleted) does so give us all a break.”
Jade was reportedly so upset with the letter she sent it to Australian comedian Em Rusciano, who penned an online opinion piece on the subject. “It’s not like she busted into their houses armed with life-size portraits of her child dressed as a tiny adorable pumpkin and demand that they be hung on every wall,” Rusciano wrote. “Obviously in some people’s opinion she’s been overdoing it on the proud mother moments. Annoying, yes. Worthy of an anonymous poison pen situation, no.
“It honestly doesn’t feel as though 'the girls' just wanted Jade to change a particular (behavior),” she continued. “It feels as though they wanted her to feel crap about herself. If this were me I would have felt ambushed, alone and obsessed with finding out who 'the girls' actually were so I may understand their motivation better.”
