Parents often receive advice they didn’t ask for, like how they should raise their kids, feed them, and so on. Sometimes, this piece of advice is given by a stranger who has no idea that their “valuable” recommendations only cause irritation. Sometimes, advice-givers really try to help and care for you. But most of the time, people give advice to raise their own self-esteem, while parents perceive this as someone else having no confidence in their parental skills.
