I never understand why some mothers find it necessary or even fun to judge other mothers. I mean, all of us must know how difficult, scary, and isolating it is to be a Mom. So how can some mothers have the heart to cut another struggling mom down and make her feel like she is doing a terrible job.
I my kid so much, and I work very hard to make sure that they feel safe, loved, cared for all the time. So, I would really feel hurt if someone came up to me and told me that how I raise my children is wrong. My parenting practices are important to me. I have thought and prayed about them and I believe that they are certainly what is right for my kids.
However, although I have my own “right way” of parenting, I do not look at the ways of other mothers as wrong. As I have my own reasons for choosing my methods and practices, I am sure they have their own great reasons too. I believe that no loving mother would be purposefully making wrong decisions for their kids. I have the right to think that how I choose to raise my kids is the best way for me, but that certainly does not give me the right to think of others’ choices as inferior.
If you have the same sentiments on the mom wars that have been going on online, “Don’t Judge My Mommy!” is a post you would certainly want to read.
