Support each other
Motherhood is hard. Just when you think you have it figured out and everything under control, the kids enter a new stage. As moms we should be helping each other and not judging. Most moms don’t ask for help because they are afraid of being judged and thought of as a bad mother. I can’t blame then either with all the mommy wars going on out there. We need to support each other and do everything we can to help each other out. When we help someone they usually want to help us back. It can create a beautiful cycle. Here are some tips to help support others without them asking for help.
Reach out to another mom
Arrange a coffee date with another mom and just chat. Really get to know each other. When we make mom friends then we have someone that we can lean on and they can lean on us. It’s so important to have someone to talk to that can relate to you. It can be hard to reach out to people but in the end you could make a lifelong friend. I think the risk is worth it.
Make dinner for another mom
Sometimes we don’t have time to make a homemade meal. We are tired and just want to relax after a busy day. Having something prepared already can be a lifesaver. When you are making your dinner one night make another one too. Then take it to a another mom’s house. It doesn’t have to be for any reason either . You can just say I had extra or tell her you think she’s doing a great job and you wanted to give her something. In the end you both feel pretty good about yourselves. When we feel good about ourselves we can be better moms.
Join an online community
Now this can be hard. There are many groups with judgmental moms in it. It can be hard to filter out the good ones. I have a Facebook group called Let’s Be Real where we support and encourage each other. I do not allow any judgmental posts. It’s a group where you can be yourself and express any issues or joys that are going on in your life. I would love for you to join,
The best part about these groups is that you can help others when they post about something going on in their lives. If you have been there then let them know. Tell them how you survived though it and give any advice that you have. You can help another mom from the comfort of your own home in your pajamas.
