Single mother MaryAnn Fausey Resendez was tired of being judged for taking her five-year-old daughter grocery shopping, so she made a sign and stuck it on her daughter's back.

The sign 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 6 feet".

Fausey Resendez posted a photo of daughter with the sign on her back to Facebook, where it quickly went viral, attracting more than 6000 likes and 43,000 shares.

"The sign I made her wear cuz I just know some dumb--- will take a picture and talk s--t on social media not knowing all the facts" she wrote alongside the post.

"We as people need to stop judging everyone so damn much! It's getting ridiculous and sad," one woman commented, with hundreds of others agreeing.​

"Stay safe and don't worry about anyone! We do what we have to do as mums!"

"I know exactly how you feel! This is awesome," said another mother.

"Thank you for speaking up & helping other parents in the same situation feel more secure during these frightening days!"

According to social media, some supermarkets in the UK have been banning children from entering stores, leaving parents fuming.

At the moment, it's unlikely that Australia will ban children from entering supermarkets, with all major supermarkets implementing social distancing rules and strict cleaning methods.
