What Is With Everyone Shaming Moms? This Post Explains It All

Everyone Is Different.

We always have that at the back of our heads, but sometimes we need a gentle reminder of that. When it comes to parenting, however. This difference becomes more apparent. Everyone has a different parenting style, and we need to accept that rather than judging someone.

However, that is exactly what we do. Even if you are trying to be perfect. There will still be someone who thinks you’re doing something wrong. We are humans, and we like to judge other people to feel better about our own life practices.

One mother, however, was tired of these mum wars. So she wrote a post on her Facebook page about the mom-shaming that has been going on in every comment section of parenting posts and articles.

You Are Not A Bad Mom.

My house is never clean. Like ever. I have friends (with kids) whose houses are spotless. Are they better mothers than me? Nope. Am I a better mother than them? Nope. I have a friend who gave birth in a pool in her living room. I pushed mine out in a hospital bed after receiving a gift from the epidural fairy. Both of us are good moms. I drink a beer or glass of wine (sometimes in front of my kids!) on occasion. I’m a good mom. My neighbor and good friend doesn’t drink. Also a good mom.

She later explained as to why she wrote the post. She also said that she did get a lot of positive responses. However, the comment section was not all positive.

We are all just doing our best. I’ve been blasted online by people who don’t know me for drinking, being a helicopter parent, not watching my kids enough, having a messy house, etc. And my friends who formula feed are put through the ringer. It’s ridiculous. We all want to feel like we are doing a good job, so why not give each other support and grace instead of unfair and unnecessary judgment?

Following are some of the positive reactions to her post. Many even posted their struggles with being a parent. Even some fathers joined in.

At the end of the day. It is all relative. We just have to accept our differences and make peace with everyone.
