Lately I’ve been seeing so many articles shared on facebook about helicopter moms or moms trying to help other peoples kids at the park. I read them and they sound really bitchy to me. The person writing the articles sound high and mighty and talk about “other” moms as stupid and annoying. I’m not questioning or Dismissing any of the points these women bring up. What has got my goat is this constant division of a group of people that are all in the same boat and it makes me mad! We need to be united not divided! Being a parent is the most difficult job I’ve ever had. There are no pats on the back, no paycheck, nobody, except maybe your partner sometimes is going to tell you, “you are doing a great job!” Well I guess all those supportive comments we get on facebook when we post a picture of our kids count as something, but not much. Every parent goes through the same stuff, the loss of identity, the stress and fatigue. The putting yourself last and getting depressed about it. Shouldn’t we stand together and support each other no matter what our method of raising our kids is? No one’s better than anyone else. No ones method or philosophies are superior. To each his own, live and let live. I’m so tired of all the bitchiness!
