To the mom whose child is freaking out on the floor in the grocery store:
I’ve been there and I feel you. I don’t think my child will ever stop testing my patience.
To the mom who chooses to breastfeed:
Way to go! Don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t breastfeed in public!
To the mom who wants to breastfeed but can’t get her baby to latch:
I’ve been there. You’re not failing. Breastfeeding is hard.
To the mom who chooses to bottle feed:
You’re feeding your child the way you want to and what’s best for your family. You’re awesome. Please don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.
To the mom who dresses her kids in hand-me-downs:
Me too! I feel lucky to have people in my life who give me their child’s outgrown clothes. It has saved us a lot of money.
To the mom who works all day:
You’re a superhero! It’s a hard balance. Sometimes it overwhelms me.
To the mom who is a stay-at-home-mom:
You’re amazing! I commend you. I just couldn’t do it.
To the mom going through postpartum depression:
I can’t say when it will get better, but it will. Hang in there.
To the mom who takes medication for any mental illness:
I do too and it’s a choice that makes me a better mother.
To the mom who feels she is sucking at parenthood:
You’re doing so much better than you know.
We are all going through something. It’s not our place to judge, but rather, it’s our place to lift each other up. We’re all in this together. We’re all trying to do our best.
If we all want what’s best for our children, why all the hate?
Let’s take a moment, sit back, and try to put ourselves in another person’s shoes. Let’s keep our nasty comments to ourselves and just try to be nice. Parenting is the hardest job there is. Let’s try to keep our thoughts to ourselves.

If you see a parent do something you swear you would never do, then let it be. It’s not your story.
To each their own
