CAN YOU BELIEVE SHE WAS FEEDING HER DAUGHTER THAT? CAN YOU BELIEVE SHE TOOK HER BABY OUT SHOPPING IN PAJAMAS? CAN YOU BELIEVE THEY LET HIM WATCH THE PHONE? CAN YOU CAN YOU CAN YOU CAN YOU…

Everyone parents differently.

Some are no electronics and some are electronics and TV from early on. Some children have been only in cloth diapers and some wear whatever diapers are available. Breast or bottlefed. To self soothe or rocked to sleep. The lists of differences go on and on.

You might ask, HEY SO WHAT’S THE BIG DEAL?

Here’s the beautiful thing about this all …

These kids will be friends and will still play on the playground together and still do art in class together and still be children together. They might not know their parents had such different ways to raise them. Each of them will still have strengths and weakness. Each of them will still have good and bad days, just like we all have. So did it matter if baby boy never nursed because his mom chose not to and only slept after being rocked to sleep? NO. Or that his friend was nursed 2-3 years? NO. Both mamas love their baby and made choices for a reason.

I AM JUST SICK OF PEOPLE BEING NASTY TO ONE ANOTHER. I CAN’T HANDLE IT. LET’S CHANGE THE CULTURE AND COME TOGETHER.

 

I feel like the scene from Mean Girls right about now. When Tina Fey’s character says “Raise your hand if you have ever been personally victimized by Regina George”. Everyone raises their hand. I feel like as mothers we can of course share our opinions and experience with others but let’s be open and nice about it, not victimize mothers who are trying to find their way. BECAUSE for some things THERE IS NO RIGHT ANSWER and DIFFERENT THINGS WORK FOR DIFFERENT MAMAS and BABIES.

Motherhood is HARD enough, lets stick together and empower each other, not tear each other down.

  1. OMG YES!!!! I couldn’t agree more! Thankfully, I have a super supportive group of mom friends who empower each other when we’re critical of ourselves, but I know that there are a lot of other moms out there who aren’t like that. We make each other and ourselves stronger by supporting others, not by tearing each other down!

  2. Yes, it most certainly does need to stop! I feel like women these days are like the mean girls of high school. I think a lot of it has to do with being anonymous behind a keyboard. You see this in mom FB groups all the time, it boggles my mind that 30 something year old women act this way!

    1. I think so too! I do think because not being face to face, people assume it can be taken more lightly but I find it the opposite! I agree, come on ladies we are all in this together, no one needs to be a REGINA. lol 🙂

    1. Yes, I can totally relate! It can make it hard to want to be around other mothers that you know have strong opinions and that are not as open to the idea that everyone parents differently and no one is right/wrong. Thanks for commenting!
