team mommy

A friend asked me for some advice on getting her baby boy to sleep in his crib the other day and it got me thinking. As mommies, we need to be more supportive of one another. We need to ask for advice when we need it and give advice when asked. We need to remind each other with this advice that each and every child is different, and that what worked for us might not work for them. We need to encourage each other and reinforce that we are doing the best we can for that particular child.

We need not tear each other down or imply that we know better. We need not be close-minded to ideas that are unfamiliar to us.

We need to stick together. We need to do our research and share our knowledge. We need to encourage, uplift and support each other.

Too often I see Moms criticizing each other behind their backs. We are on the same team! We need to stick together. After all, it really does take a village to raise a child. We need each other!
