Regardless of ethnic background or traditional values, we all share a common denominator: our children.
Without them, we wouldn’t be moms.
There seems to be so much mom shaming nowadays that I felt the need to share this post with you.
For the sake of sanity and to put an end to mom shaming I’m sharing a few tips on how to do motherhood your way.
Read them, share them, but most importantly apply them.
1) Don’t shame other moms because they don’t do things the way you do. Do what works for you.
2) Don’t compare yourself or your child to others. We’ve all heard it and know it to be true. Comparison is the thief of joy. We’re all individuals, and we do things differently. There’s beauty in that.
3) Do your best and leave the rest! Some days you’ll feel like you can conquer the world. Others you will feel like you can barely get out of bed. Let’s learn to do our best and leave the rest. That pile of laundry won’t fold itself, but you don’t need to get it to it now.
4. Don’t be afraid to ask for help! Can’t deep clean your house, get a cleaning service to come out to scrub your place for you. Can’t cook? Get a meal service! Need a break (yes even if you’re a SAHM) get a sitter to come watch your kids a few hours a day. Getting assistance, or help does not make you less of a mother.
Listen none of us are superwomen, we’re all women trying to give our children the best we can.
Society and social media will have you questioning your mothering skills.
We were not given the privilege to become mothers in order to compare ourselves with other moms. We all need to do what works for us and learn to encourage one another. Together we can put an end to mom shaming because the truth is we’re all doing the best we can.
