Guilty As Charged

Standard

When you hear a fellow Mommy state that they do something differently than you, what is your first reaction?  It’s hard not to judge other parents’ techniques.  When you hear another mother admit that they let their six year old ride in the front seat to the grocery store as a “special treat,”  its hard not to let your mouth fall open in utter shock.  Its hard not to think that you are a superior momma.

Here’s what we must remember:  We’re all just trying our best.  Parenting is hard work.  And just because it doesn’t work for you and your family, doesn’t mean its wrong.  Well, letting your six year old ride in the front seat IS kinda wrong, but you catch the drift.

Bedtimes, TV hours, food and drink preferences, chores/allowance- these are all things that differ from family to family.  The next time you feel that urge to judge another family’s tactics, remember that they very well may be thinking the same thing about YOU!

  1. Agree and very well written… “No Judgement Zone” anyone?? 🙂 But yes, I think letting a six year old ride up front is actually illegal 😉 But point made.
