The Overthinking Mom in an Age of Information Overload

Google receives 63,000 searches every second.

There is so much information that we hold within the palms of our hands…

In today’s world, It’s easy to get caught up in what motherhood should be. We constantly battle with whether what we are doing is right or wrong because that’s all we see up and down our newsfeeds. DO THIS and DON’T DO THAT and WATCH OUT FOR THIS and MAKE SURE YOU DON’T FORGET TO…

Whereas a lot of information out there can be helpful, I’m sick of seeing articles bashing one parenting style from another. I’m already cautious enough with raising my baby, I don’t need your bogus claims about what’s okay and what’s not okay to make me feel like I’m not a good enough mother. 

We should never feel pressured into perfection. We need to quit trying to conform ourselves into an image that anyone can portray on the Internet. Nobody is the “perfect mom” that you have put yourself down for not being.

You are doing an amazing job, Mom. Not everyone can do what you do! Don’t let an article online make you feel like you are anything less than amazing. Use today’s access of the Internet in a way that builds you up, rather than making you feel as if you’re not as good as the essential oil/ all natural/ gluten-free/ organic/ WHATEVER mom out there. You are!! Xxx
