Bunmi Laditan, a mother from Montreal, Canada, wrote a Facebook Post that went viral soon after she spent more than 45 minutes investigating children’s vitamins. Bunmi and more parenting bloggers are addressing a more honest glimpse at family life, Nowadays, if you are not encouraging your kids to eat organic, quinoa, sunbeams, and multi-seeds, you’re doing something wrong, and you are going to be judged.
Bunmi has three children, and after shopping for vitamins for an entire morning, she went on a hilarious and massive rant with her Facebook post. She began by saying that being a parent in modern days is terrible and that she would give her left kneecap to have been a mother in the 70s or 80s. Bunmi believes that all someone had to do in to be considered a good parent in those times was to remember to wind down the windows when they started smoking in the car.
She revealed that after 45 minutes of researching on vitamins, comparing with other products, reading blogs that had no science behind the posts, she considers that this is not for her. Moreover, she remembers that the only vitamin she had growing up was daylight
In her Facebook post, Bunmi addresses one parent called Jackie who judged her for giving her son juice in the park. She advised Jackie to relax because she was not giving her son margarita mix or Red Bull.
Bunmi’s Facebook post was shared and liked more than 200,000 times, and parents appreciate her for saying what all of them are actually thinking.
She also noted with irony that if a parent does not buy their child an electricity bill worth of vitamins, it means that they do not love their kid.
One of the parents that commented on Bunmi’s Facebook post mentioned that she is now 60 years old and all children need is a kiss and a hug three times a day, and this is the best vitamin they could get.
Another parent mentioned that as she comments, her child is eating dirt and powdered donuts while playing naked outside and does not need any vitamins.
