Mother Shocked By Insensitive Note Left Regarding Her Baby

Trish LaForty, 26, of Queensland recently went on a family outing at the beach. When she got home, she received a nasty note in her mailbox that read “You may be able to ignore your baby crying but we are tired of listening to him crying non-stop all day.”

LaForty says that the note left her “shocked and emotional.” LaForty doesn't know who wrote it, so she decided to post it on Facebook writing:

“To whoever wrote this note: thanks. Like being a parent isn’t tough enough… You didn’t even have the guts to come knock on our door. FYI Our baby doesn’t cry ‘all day' ..he cries when he doesn’t want to go to sleep, when he’s getting his nappy changed and when I say ‘no’ because I refuse to let him be spoiled and run around like he owns the joint. If you’d like to chat more, feel free to pop in. You obviously know where we live.”

She also asked several of her neighbors if they wrote the note. Every one of them said they were surprised and they've never heard the baby cry.

LaForty said to 9 News Australia, “I wanted to clear the air, but also to find out if anyone had experienced any similar notes. Every baby has good days and bad days. Parents should be able to have the support from their community. I think it’s sad that there are still people out there who lack the true feel of what a community should be.”

The anonymous writer has yet to come forward.
