Britney Spears has won some unlikely support as her parenting skills are questioned by the media - from US mums. Top magazine Parenting asked readers to vote whether or not they thought the press had gone too far in picking on pregnant Britney's maternal instincts of late and 7,500 voters said yes. Only 25 per cent of those who voted on the publication's website felt the media was right to keep a close eye on Spears and report her slip-ups as a young mum. Recently, Spears came under fire after almost dropping her baby Sean Preston when she took a tumble in her espadrilles. She has also been widely criticised for driving through Malibu, California, with her son on her lap, and child services visited her home when the baby boy fell from his high chair and was taken to hospital. Parenting magazine editor JANET CHAN insists pictures of Spears sobbing after being snapped taking a tumble with her child perched precariously in her arm won the singer a lot of sympathy with fellow mums. She says, "I'm not sure this means Britney Spears will be in every mom's hall of fame, but this one caused them to say, 'Hey, now we're picking on her.'"
