Country music star Jana Kramer fired back at mom shamers over the weekend after some fans shared their unsolicited parenting advice.
The 35-year-old mother of daughter Jolie, 3, and son Jace Joseph, 3 months, posted an Instagram story of Jolie having a meltdown at the dinner table because she refused to eat.
As reported by People, in the candid post Kramer firmly told her daughter to “Chew it, Jolie” as she whined at the dinner table. The same day “One Tree Hill” actress shared a picture of the 3-year-old helping her mom in the kitchen and wrote:
Threenager temper tantrum at any moment.
But some fans blamed Kramer for her daughter’s “fits.”

A post shared by Jana Kramer (@kramergirl) on
One person claimed that Jolie was upset because her mom was spending too much time taking care of her baby brother and husband Mike Caussin.
They assumed the little girl was acting out for attention.
This angered Kramer and she shut down critics with an Instagram story captioned:
???? You live in my house? So you think u know? No that’s right you don’t!
In another video post, she responded to the mom-shamers. Kramer said:
“I know I shouldn’t respond to comments, especially comments like that, but it just drives me crazy that people feel the need to comment on my pictures. And then it makes me upset because I’m like, I want to be able to post a temper tantrum of Jolie’s, just to keep it real, and for the other moms out there, you’re not alone.”
“Yet, I have people trolling my page saying, ‘Well, she’s doing that because of this.”
Kramer said she shares videos like this on social media to show other parents it’s normal to have kids who throw tantrums.
“Just stop. You don’t know; you don’t live in this house, you don’t know what’s going on. Please don’t tell me why my child’s acting that way, thanks.”
After seeing her comment and posts some fans shared their thoughts on the situation.
One commenter wrote on Instagram:
“These people making these comments obviously don’t have kids or they are just stupid. All kids have tantrums. We are not perfect and our kids are not perfect, its called life!!!”
Do you agree with Kramer?
