The “mommy wars” are a hot topic nowadays! And it’s disappointing that moms feel the need to judge one another, but it happens all too much. Whether it’s comments from family members, conversations with other mothers, or encounters with total strangers, many of us experience these judgments a little more often than we’d like. Even though some are suppose to be well-meaning, others are just plain snarky and mean, which often makes us question ourselves as moms and doesn’t make us feel very good.
In October, Award-Winning director, Cynthia Wade, will premiere her film, “The #EndMommyWars.” (You can take a sneak peek of the trailer here!) She’s a mom that’s experienced judgement, so making the film was personal for her. The film follows several new moms, who’ve done what’s best for their babies, and, through their stories, Wade hopes to end the mommy wars.
As part of the #EndMommyWars initiatve, we are encouraging consumers to share their mommy war story via a short, selfie-style video on the Similac Facebook page using the hashtag #EndMommyWars. I made my own video with my thoughts on how to end the mommy wars, and I hope you guys will too!
Questions of the Day
Moms, can you relate? When was a time that you personally experienced the mommy wars? What did you do?
