I’ve been doing more thinking about the concept of gratefulness and how I am teaching my son how to incorporate this practice into his everyday life.
Consider this: Can moms be bullies to other moms when it comes to how we parent? I am not suggesting that mom-bullying happens the same way it does with kids in school; but what about gossip, name-calling, sarcasm, judgement, mom-shaming and just being outright rude and mean?
There is a how-to book for just about everything except for motherhood. And I haven’t found one that contains tips like these.
While I am celebrating another year of life for the kid (and my Momiversary), I am reflecting on the 6 biggest lessons I’ve been focused on learning as a mom.
My hope is that my thoughts on this topic will spark a healthy and productive dialogue with families as it relates to how we talk about safeguarding our children’s bodies against those who would want to cause them harm.
