Woman’s rant about how mums should ‘take some pride’ on school run sparks fury

Parenting is really hard work, so the prospect of doing your hair and make up as well as make breakfast and get the kids ready for school every single day is not necessarily realistic.

One mum has sparked fury online after posting an epic rant about how she thinks other mums should "try a little" with their appearance on the school run.

The post, which has since gone viral, says: "Ladies, even if you aren’t getting out of the car at drop off can you please try a little.

"I look around as I’m walking my daughter to the front door and all we see is rat nest hair, no makeup, eye bags out to wherever and I’m not 100 but I think I smell morning breath coming from these cars."

She continued, claiming that her daughter said that she is "so pretty" but her friends mums "all look so old".

"On the real, if my seven year old can see you aren’t even trying what is your husband thinking? Take some pride".

The post has been shared widely on parenting pages on social media, and on Sanctimommy has over 1,000 comments from parents with strong views on the rant.

"I can’t roll my eyes hard enough at this persons post," one wrote.

Another said that getting dressed up is the last thing on her mind in the morning: "Right cuz when i’m running on 4 hours of sleep after working all night i’m super concerned about looking nice while I sit in a car."

Others wanted to highlight that their husbands are really grateful for what they do, and aren’t bothered about how dressed up they get for the school run: "My husband is thinking ‘thanks, wife, for dropping the kid off at school so I don’t have to’?

Others disbelieved that the woman’s seven-year-old really commented about how much better her mum looks than her friends’ mums , saying that it’s "clearly a lie".

Some mums on the Facebook page said they were shocked the mum was proud of her daughter for saying something like this, with some accusing the mum of raising her daughter to value looks over other traits.

One wrote: "I’d be so ashamed if my seven year old said something like this. We’d be having a long talk."

Not everyone had the same views on the post, as one person admitted they were busy judging the other mums for something entirely different.

"Gosh, I spend the whole time judging everyone’s driving. Get out of my way," a parent added.
