Colleen Stice said the stranger was too quick to judge because her 4-year-old son uses a wheelchair. They didn’t have it with them at the time because it was being cleaned.

Stice said what the stranger didn’t see was how much she struggled to hold her son after a long day of shopping for Christmas presents.

She wrote this response in a Facebook post:

“Imagine how bad days can get for special needs parents. The possibilities are endless. You don’t know me, and you don’t know the next person you see parking in a handicapped spot. Don’t shame them. They probably don’t deserve it. Just be kind.”
