Star of Loose Women lunchtime chat show, Stacey Solomon, was fuming after receiving rude comments from a troll on her Instagram concerning her parenting style. The 30-year-old mother took her 23 months old son Rex for a day out with her long-time friend and Xfactor star, Sophie Hinch.
Mrs. Hinch has a big garden in her home, which doubled as a playground for this visit. Sophie also has a son, Ron, about the same age as Stacey’s and this was the perfect playground for the kids to have all the fun they wanted. The Loose Women star shared photos of the boys having fun on her Instagram story when a troll made a rude comment after seeing it.
Rex wasn't wearing any coat and was dressed in a round neck top and jeans without shoes on, while Ron was in a hooded coat to keep him warm. The Instagram troll was quick to point this out, saying that the two kids, one without the coat and one without shoes, were a true reflection of their parents.
Stacey---a doting mother to 3 kids---was infuriated by the statement but chose not to take offense or read much into it. She did, however, respond to the comment saying that parenting is a learning curve, and each child should be treated differently according to their needs and temperament. She mentioned how she paid attention to every detail when her first child Leighton was born, but parenting got harder as her family grew. In her own words, kids can be stubborn at times, and she's lucky if even one of them agrees to wear shoes or a coat!
The Loose Woman star made a joke about it in her response, despite how furious she was at the attack on her parenting skills.
Raising children is no easy task, and it can be a lot tougher if you have to pay attention to negative comments about what’s done right and what’s not. Although, Stacey definitely won't forget to take a coat next time, and make sure Rex is wearing shoes before sharing any pictures with the parenting experts of Instagram!
At least Sophie and Stacey had a great day catching up for the first time after a while. They were clearly happy and also proud of their kids, which is why they shared pictures. Close friends are rare, and the time spent with them should be cherished. The kids also had a lot of fun and perhaps started their own legendary friendship like what their parents have with each other.
The two friends, Sophie and Stacey, made similar posts afterward, stating how much they missed each other. Genuine friends are such a blessing, aren't they?
