Australian mummy blogger Krechelle Carter – known online as Eight at Home – screenshot some of the bodyshaming messages she has received from trolls to take a stand against online bullying.
Highlighting the hurtful messages she received from one user in particular, Krechelle said: "I just want to make one thing very CLEAR – no form of bullying should be tolerated."
Along with accusing the mum-of-six of having "absolutely no credibility", the troll started off by how the mum's "vagina must be a trainwreck".
The user also felt the need to label Krechelle "chronically obese" and sarcastically said she'd "hit the trifecta in life".
Taking aim at her parenting skills, the troll concluded: "The quality of life your kids are going to have in the future is gonna be just terrible.

Its not always perfect. Life has its ups and downs. I'll take the small wins these days. Like this photo that was taken when we went for breakfast on my birthday. These kids. My family. They are my life. Look at all those little faces! I went to see the new movie Instant Family the other day and it made me appreciate my family that little bit more! I really did love this movie so so much.I've had so many messages from you guys saying you’ve loved it too! And that makes me happy! I've had messages from foster parents that have brought me to tears. They love the message this movie spreads and so do I. It's out NOW in cinemas. Do yourself a favor and check it out. #InstantFamily #Sp #Birthday #NewMovie #smallwins
"I feel so bad for the children, I hope you at least adopt one out in the hopes that it at least gets a good life."
Responding to each of the troll's messages one by one, Rochelle jokingly replied to the first outlandish claim with: "My vagina is perfectly intact btw because of C-section – holla!'
"But even if I had had them out of my hoo hah it would have been even more beautiful for it."
Describing how they're "just your average f***ing family", Krechelle added: "My children are perfectly fine.
"We eat broccoli and have craft supplies somewhere and we let them run around enough and cut bedtime stories in half like all good parents do."
Defending herself from the trolls' claims about her children's "terrible quality of life", the mum added: "My kids – they are the best thing I ever did with my life.
"They are the only thing I wouldn't change. They are loved and special.
"They would feel sorry for you because I feel sorry for you."
In response to the troll's comment about hitting the "trifecta", Krechelle replied: "I did hit the trifecta.
"Gorgeous adoring husband, beautiful, healthy children and family & friends that spread for miles."
Unsurprisingly, the blogger's 24,000 followers have praised for her the honest post.

A part of my little blog here is being able to share wicked initiatives with you guys- So when I received this one when I had just come out of surgery- I knew I had to get on board! Next Thursday the 1st of November there is this great initiative happening called “Outdoor Classroom Day” This is all about trying to get 300,000 students outdoors learning for the day!! Now this to me with six active monkeys who love a day in the sun; I can’t think of anything better – but it’s more than just that, there’s been amazing studies done (let’s hope outdoors ☺️) that suggest not only is being outdoors fun for students and teachers but also that when kids learn outdoors, they learn more; especially when you think about how all children learn so differently we want these options there for our children to learn in the best way they can. And being outside moving around with fresh air; I couldn’t think of anything better…… The facts are; teachers want more outdoor learning, children want more outdoor learning and the benefits are endless! So what do we need from you? Ask your teacher or school in person to sign up to Outdoor Classroom Day at outdoorclassroomday.com.au/ and while you’re at it, talk to other parents and ask them to talk to there teachers about it too! I’ll be doing this on Monday- together let’s get our kids learning and playing outdoors! #OutdoorClassroomDay #OMO #DirtIsGood #NaturePlay
One replied: "YAS Queen! I'm so sorry that you received such a horrible message.
"But from the hundreds of messages you have received, he is the minority. Hiding behind a computer screen to troll someone. Just so sad. You continue to be you."
Another wrote: "I'm about to become a mother to eight and the amount of comments I get is insane and rude.
"I try to ignore them but honestly, how is saying something about how many kids we choose to have really any of their business?"
In more parenting news, this dad has sparked outrage after he admitted his "biggest life regret" is having his son – and his wife AGREES.
And this genius mum put her children's medicine inside a "juice carton" to encourage her poorly kids to drink it with no fuss.
Plus this mum-of-three admitted she writes her babysitter SEVEN notes while her husband leaves just his phone number – so who's in the right?
