Mum who called the cops on another parent says she made a massive ‘mistake’ for this heartbreaking reason

A MUM has penned an emotional post about the overwhelming regret she feels about calling the police on another parent years ago.
Megan Burnside revealed that she witnessed the woman struggling to get her screaming 10-year-old son into a car – and saw her “physically fight” and “hit” him in the process.
Megan Burnside said she made a snap decision about the other mum, and lived to regret the moment
But despite making a snap judgement to call the authorities, she painfully regrets her decision, and her revealing Facebook confession has been shared over 17,000 times.
Megan said of the mum and son: “He was screaming and she was so angry and frustrated. We watched her get him in the car and there was a lot of physical fighting in the car.
“It looked like she was hitting him as well, so we called the police. They came and we left.”
While her intentions were good, she explained that she felt she had made a massive mistake when she heard the back story from the police.

Megan continued: “We then got a call and they told us that the boy was autistic and she really struggled with him, and she had even asked for the police’s help in the past to deal with him because he was very violent.
“They said they have been helping her and she’s doing the best she can. I had the most overwhelming realization of my mistake.”
Megan said that in her eagerness to help the child, she had neglected to help the mother – a decision she has regretted 11 years down the line.
She said that although there is a place for the authorities to help, she feels like we have become a culture of fault-finding instead of helping.

She said: “We have become more separated and condemning, instead of compassionate and loving and serving.
“It’s time to stop judging each other and start helping each other, or we will only perpetuate isolation, depression, addictions, violence, and suicide. When people are overwhelmed they need help, not condemnation.
“I know I have been guilty for doing this very thing and I see clearly how I probably perpetuated the problem instead of helping to uplift and assist others.”
Thankfully she had a chance to put her new philosophy into practise a few weeks ago.
Megan said she visited a thrift store and saw a mum struggling to cope with two young kids who were causing havoc.
Instead of condemning the mum, Megan went over and tried to support and help her.
It’s time to stop judging each other and start helping each other, or we will only perpetuate isolation, depression, addictions, violence, and suicide.
She said: “I know there were other things going on, but in that moment I told her I understood what it’s like to be overwhelmed. I told her she was a good mom. I told her everything was going to be okay. She cried, guys. She CRIED as everyone else watched her struggle with her burden.”
Megan managed to calm the boy down and help a desperate mum in the process.
She said: “We are not that different. True change comes when we are given love and help, not condemnation.”

You’ve been wrapping presents wrong your whole life – this one quick hack will blow your mind

WHEN it comes to Christmas, everyone has their own traditions and way of doing things.
But here’s a revelation that is guaranteed to blow your mind – you may have been wrapping your presents wrong and there is a much easier way of doing it.
Getty – Contributor There is a speedy way to wrap your presents in seconds using minimal tape
Most people wrap their gifts lengthwise, folding the ends in and securing them with multiple bits of tape, but there could be a quicker way.
Instead of lining up rectangular boxes in the middle of the paper, turn them at an angle so they sit diagonally on the wrapping.
Then fold the end two corners in and secure with tape, before pulling the third diagonal corner into the centre.
Finally fold up the final corner and tape it in place, and voila! The easy process takes just seconds and is favoured by department store members around the world.

With this handy technique, you’ll be able to race through your holiday wrapping and still have time to unwind with a mulled wine and mince pie.
And it turns out that it isn’t just presents that we have been doing wrong.
According to designer Francesco Bilotto, the traditional method of wrapping Christmas lights horizontally in circles around the branches is not the way to do it.
He claims we should drape them vertically instead, as this prevents the glow from the lights from getting lost in the middle of the tree.

Francesco told HouseBeautiful.com: “This way every tip of your tree, from branch to branch, will twinkle with delight.”
He added: “Another added bonus is when you dismantle your tree and take off the lights, it’ll be easier and less messy to remove strands from the exterior of the tree — rather than fighting a stubborn almost dried branch.”
