Read this, not that : Mommy Wars edition

11 May

Just as I finally put words to how I’ve been feeling about the pressures of mommy perfection and the conflicts we all face in choosing how we raise our children, BAM! A struggling magazine ignites the mommy wars with heavy-handed headlines and provocative photographs. Well, I say don’t pay attention. Don’t give in and make the magazine’s attempt to stoke fires and create controversy successful. It only hurts us, the parents, and the parenting communities we need and appreciate.

Read this, instead: http://blogs.babble.com/strollerderby/2012/05/10/its-time-to-stop-fighting-the-mommy-wars/ It’s a great opinion from Stroller Derby on the whole thing. Hat tip to Spanglish Baby for the link.
