For most new mothers, the realization that “mommy wars” exist is shocking. No one ever thinks they are going to be a part of a community and tribe of women who judge and offend one another because of the way we parent our children. We all judge, let’s be real here, but telling another mother that their way isn’t the “right” way is getting out of hand.
We are all doing our best as mothers, and just because you might do it differently doesn’t mean that the other mom’s way of doing it, is not a good way too. There is no right or wrong way of being a mom, there are different ways of being a mom, but we all have the same purpose. We all go through pretty much the same things and instead of bashing each other, we need each other for support. We need to be open minded and respectful in the different ways that we parent our children and raise them. As long as a mother is not mistreating or malnourishing a child and the child is happy just like yours, then just respect their way of parenting.
There is no reason to make another mother feel worse by judging who she is in only a short moment. Learn the reasons why you should be supportive of other moms, and less hateful.
