Ending Mommy Wars
There’s always a first for everything. This week, I did my first live TV interview with either food poisoning or a terrible case of the stomach flu. I still don’t know which it was (I ate mussels the night before the interview), and I still don’t know how I made it through. But somehow I did. Without vomiting. Gross.
On this week’s Global TV parenting segment, Camille Ross and I talked why moms are so judgmental of one another. I showcased what one awesome group of working moms in Connecticut are doing to end “Mommy Wars,” and instead of judging each others’ differences, are SUPPORTING each others’ differences. It takes a village to raise a child, and therefore we MUST be each other’s cheerleaders, not frenemies.
Here was this week’s segment on 101 fever, and, well, I’ll spare you the rest of the details…
Happy Thanksgiving to my wonderful Canadian friends!
I’d also love to know what you think about this topic. Have you ever been guilty of judging another woman or mom? Are you guilty of being caught in these Mommy Wars? I’d love to hear your thoughts about moms being unsupportive of other moms.
