So I just read this article End the mommy Wars. Looking at this article made me realize the base issue of the mommy wars. Looking at the photo that says Making different choices & raising healthy children is when it hit me. Many people have very strong views on what is healthy and what is not when it comes to children. Even though a lot of those choices are made by both parents the mom is the one to get credit / blame most of the time. Hence the mommy wars
Examples using the pictures: home birth vs scheduled c-section. Some people have the strong belief that home birth can be very dangerous for baby and mom. Others think planned c-section is dangerous and unhealthy.
breastfeeding vs formula: we all know that people have strong view on which is best and also views on if you breastfeed a toddler
The list goes on and on and as I see it, at the base of it all is what people view as what is healthiest for children. Now if contuses and countless studies would stop coming out saying one thing over another thing is healthier, better, you are hurting your kids this week but the next week it is recommended practice; perhaps we would have less mommy wars?
What do you think?
