When Saying “Me Too” Can Help You Feel Like a Good Mother

When Saying “Me Too” Can Help You Feel Like a Good Mother

I have had the luxury of spending countless hours with mothers in the work that I do.  What I discover time and again is that once the women get to know one another, they choose to be compassionate, inspirational and empowering with one another.  This experience contrasts with what I see in our society and a sad truth in motherhood and parenting; we judge one another.  The judgment takes different forms like books, advice columns/blogs, discipline styles, and moments at the park/school.  The media likes to call it “mommy wars.”
