Katie Price has made the tough decision to leave baby Jett at home as she goes back to work.
This week, I find myself ready to stand up and defend Katie Price because she’s being unfairly attacked online.
Trolls are criticising the mum of four for leaving 13-week-old baby son Jett at home, while she has flown off to Australia for ten days on a business trip.
One Twitter user says: ‘Surely better to spend quality time with Jett rather than hoofing off to Australia?’
I think this is totally unfair; she is merely trying to provide for her family.
Katie is NOT a bad mother.
I’m sure she didn’t make the decision to go on the trip without Jett lightly and it wasn’t easy for her young family.
She told a friend, ‘Working mothers are given abuse over things that working fathers are not, but my career helps feed my family and like many working mothers I sometimes have to make difficult choices to benefit my family’.
I totally agree with Katie’s point, we live in a world nowadays where many mothers are the main bread winners in a relationship and certainly shouldn’t be criticised for having to go back to work (probably sooner than they would have liked).
As a father myself I find it totally unfair that people are just assuming that her husband Kieran Hayler cannot look after the children in her absence.
The vast majority of dads I know are very much hands on and not totally useless!
For all her promoting, Katie Price tries to keep her family life separate and I hope she can protect her children from the idiots who are making these accusations and probably know nothing about how tough it is for working parents.
