Many moms fall into the trap of comparing themselves to other moms and wondering if they’re doing enough for their kids.
It can be hard to feel like you’re a good mom when your house is a mess, the kids are screaming at each other, and you’re behind on two weeks of laundry.
Maybe you feel like you’re not cut out for motherhood or are experiencing overwhelming guilt for wanting a break from all the chaos.
It’s natural to have moments where you’re questioning your abilities as a parent, but too much self-doubt can destroy you from the inside out.
If you’re a mother, just know you’re not alone. Every mom has had a similar thought cross their mind at some point in their life.
Adele Brayley (@adelebrayley) is a mom of five, and she’s sharing an important message that every struggling mom needs to hear.
“Next time you’re worrying if you’re a good mom or not, just remember bad moms, don’t worry if they’re a good mom,” stated Adele.
The fact that you are worrying about it at all means that you’re an excellent mother! There’s no such thing as a perfect mom, and striving for absolute perfection will only lead to frustration. A good mother is someone who does her best.
Every mom has their own style of parenting. What works for another mom might not work for you. That doesn’t mean you have failed in any way. Children are unique individual beings and respond to certain strategies differently.
