Thank you Sisterhood of Motherhood for sponsoring today’s post and helping us end the “mommy wars.”
We’ve all been there. We’ve all experienced this in some way, shape, or form. We jokingly call it the “mommy wars” and while it is that, it’s also bullying on a grown up level. We also deal with self judgment regularly and we as parents are always questioning ourselves and there’s always that little bit of doubt somewhere in the back of our minds…”Am I doing this right?”
I’ve seen mothers argue over things that seem completely ridiculous years later. For instance, I saw moms argue once over which carrier was the best and it was a little crazy. They acted like their way was the ONLY way. Moms judge eachother for working outside of the home or being a stay at home mom. Basically, parents are judging each other for every single little thing and it has got to stop. The mommy war struggle is real and it’s hard.
At the end of the day, we all love our children. We make decisions based on our love for them. In most cases there is no wrong way or right way. It’s time for the mommy wars to end. We should be setting an example for our children and not making other parents feel bad just because we feel our way is the right way.
Join the Sisterhood of Motherhood and share your “Mommy Wars” story!
I’ve experienced some mommy judgment a little bit myself. See what I have to say in the video below and then visit the Similac Facebook page and share your own mommy wars story by tagging #EndMommyWars or just join in the great judgment-free conversation.
#EndMommyWarsWe’ve all experienced judgment from other parents and it doesn’t feel good. I don’t share this often, or do video often for that matter, but here’s my story. Let’s end the mommy wars by being kind and setting a good example for our children. #sp #EndMommyWars Similac US
