Let's talk about something for a minute. Something that may have some controversy to it, but I feel EVERY MOM needs to know. Your education level does not define if you are a good mom or not! Just because you do not have a degree you are not automatically a bad mom. You shouldn't feel like you are either! So often I hear moms say, almost ashamed, that they chose to be a mom instead of an education. Our society almost has it so that we believe that. I struggle with it! I hear all the time that I would be a better mom, a better provider if I had an education. I get comments of how its such a shame that I had a baby and didn't finish my education. This is simply not true. Now I am not saying an education is a good thing to have, or that it isn't beneficial, but it should not define our abilities to mother! I am not sorry that I chose the option that was best for my family. No mom should be! Whether you chose an education or not, you did what was best for your family. Some moms choose to do just the mom thing, its what is best for their family. There is no shame in that and moms should not ever feel inadequate for not doing what so meone else though best. No mom that chooses an education should be shamed for choosing what I best for her family. No mom that does both, college slowly and stay home, should be shamed for it either! I'm so sick of hearing people rag on moms who choose the mom thing, and moms feel ashamed for choosing the mom thing! Or people ragging on moms for doing college and a career and moms feeling like they packed somehow! Its not your business, its not your family and its not your place to have an opinion. Be supportive of moms! They are raising the next generation and whatever they choose is best, support it dammit!
