In today’s world, mothers have it harder than ever. With Pinterest boards, parenting hacks, a million warnings you could never keep track of and the watchful eye of far too many unwelcome critics, it’s no wonder mamas today are losing their minds.
Whether you put your kid on a leash or let them run wild, you’re going to be criticized. If you bottle-feed from birth, you’re exposing your child to harsh products when their bodies need the soft nutrients of breast milk. If you give your kid a candy bar, it’s probably the end of the world. And if you don’t make it to the gym six days a week, recover from pregnancy like a rubber band, and somehow go longer than 30 minutes without losing your cool with your kids, then your motherhood will be challenged.
Everyone is a critic these days, because our lives are on display for all to see. But as Laura Mazza wants others to realize this week, it is nobody’s place to judge another.
“Don’t judge me,” the ‘Mum on the Run’ penned to Facebook.
