The “StrongMoms Empower” campaign is an effort going on now to empower moms about the decisions they make for their children and their families. It saddens me how quick we are to publicly berate other parents, especially in today’s world where there seems to be a large amount of computer muscles behind the boldness of those who take it upon themselves to criticize.
It is time to put the “Mommy Wars” to rest once and for all. It is getting us nowhere. It is time to support one another, even if we do not always agree with one another; especially if we do not agree with one another. No matter how strong our feelings, there is no right or wrong way to be a parent. So let us take a new path, where instead of being at war with one another we can be strong together:
Strong moms empower their children.
Strong moms know when to seek advice or research their options.
Strong moms know when to trust their own instincts.
Strong moms understand that each child is different and each family is unique.
Strong moms know when to advocate on behalf of their children.
Strong moms know when to give their children the reigns.
Strong moms recognize the right of each parent to make their own decisions.
Strong moms are confident in their own parenting style.
Strong moms applaud other moms.
Strong moms empower one another.
We can accomplish so much if we can just celebrate our right to make our own decisions. Instead of criticizing, why not empower?
