Moms Work Together to End the Mommy Wars

Moms Work Together to End the Mommy Wars | Positively Smitten

Ever notice that the media pits women against women? And have you seen how society judges moms and the choices they make when it comes to raising their children?

A group of amazing mamas from Connecticut Working Moms hoping to end these “Mommy Wars” posed for a photo shoot that was all about embracing their different parenting choices. These ladies shared their photos (taken by Jean at I View Photography) with Positively Smitten readers in an effort to spread the love and stop the judgment.

“Who cares if some moms choose to homeschool vs. use public schools or if some moms breastfeed and others don’t or if some moms let their kids watch more TV than others? The only choices we have control over are our own,” writes CTWM founder Michelle Noehren in the original post. “We should be supporting women’s decisions instead of critiquing them and making snap judgments based off our limited knowledge of other people’s situations.”

We couldn’t agree more… Check out the amazing photo shoot for yourself!

  1. This is AMAZING, wow! I am not only in awe of this photoshoot (the pics are all stunning), but the message is incredibly powerful. I love it.

  2. It’s about TIME. We need more support and less judgement. Our choices don’t make us a better mom, just different. As a “trailing spouse” (we moved a lot) I found I had to reinvent myself every few years and adapt to my host country – this often meant limited access to jobs or education opportunities, which meant my career and personal goals were put on a very extended hold. Because I am not a career woman, doesn’t mean I never had dreams of doing great or important things, I made different choices and I would appreciate not being judged as an uneducated, frumpy, simple house wife.

    Thank you for posting this.

  3. This is SO awesome! :o) I used an image for a recent blog post… hope that is okay! (I DID provide a link) What an awesome project… pictures are indeed worth a 1,000 words! THANK YOU FOR SHARING! My blog post: http://notjustablonde.wordpress.com/2013/09/15/just-doing-our-best-judge-less/
