Beeing a single mother is never easy task. MaryAnn Fausey Resendez from Texas, U. S., fully understand that.
A desperate MaryAnn has resorted to making her five-year-old daughter wear a sign during supermarket trips to stop strangers shaming her for not shopping alone amid the coronavirus crisis.
She had no other choice but to take her daughter with her to do an essential shop earlier this week.
Just like the UK, supermarkets in the US have also implemented social distancing rules and limited the number of shoppers entering stores.
To avoid any confrontation with others who have to shop alone, MaryAnn decided to explain her situation on a sign which she made her daughter wear on her back.
It read: “I am only five. I can’t stay home alone so I have to buy groceries with mummy.
“Before you start judging, stay back six feet.”
She then posted the photo on Facebook with the caption: “The sign I made her wear cuz I just know some dumb*** will take a picture & talk s*** on social media not knowing all the facts.”
Her post has since been shared by over 41,000 other users and racked up over 5,000 comments.
Drawing on her own experience, one mum replied: “I have to do this with my six-year-old son. I’m glad I’m not alone. It had momma feeling really really bad!”
Another added: “Exactly!! I have to bring my 18 month old with me! People have come up to me and said You can’t find someone to watch her?? Wait… WHAT?!”
