Momshaming NEEDS to stop
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.
Comment on this post and let me know what you think. How do you combat negativity from other moms or how to do empower mamas?
