I’ll Never Stop Judging Other Moms So Stop Trying To Make Me Feel Guilty About It

I'll Never Stop Judging Other Moms So Stop Trying To Make Me Feel Guilty About It

Who decided that all mothers have to agree with and support each other, or that we even should? That’s the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard.

If you’re too bad of a parent, you’ll be called negligent and every other name in the book. And if you’re too good of a parent, you’ll be accused of being fake, sanctimonious, and—worst of all—making your child your identity. More »
