I’ve been visiting a lot of blogs to learn more about blogging. A lot of them are blogs written by moms. What I’ve realized is that we are all very different in the way we parent and what is important to us as mothers. I’ve never understood this idea of Mommy Wars. There are moms out there online and that I know in person who do things better than I do and they give me inspiration to do better and be a better mother. I learn things from these moms that make me better. There are also moms who parent in ways I don’t agree with. They remind me of who I don’t want to be and why. I don’t think they are necessarily bad moms they just parent in a way that doesn’t feel right to me. There are just way to many mom debates out there breastfeeding vs. formula, co sleeping vs. cribs, being a stay at home vs. working out of the home, whether or not to let a baby cry it out. Now that my daughter is older there are new debates. When to start kindergarten, public school vs. private, what chores are appropriate at this age.
I’ve tried to learn as mom to just learn what I can from other moms and keep what I agree with and forget the rest. We all don’t need to parent the same. If we did then who would I learn from or get advice from. We aren’t better than one another we just place value on different things.
