Stay at home mom? Work outside of the home mom? Gentle Parenting? Baby wearing? Exclusive breastfeeding mom? Bottle feeding? Organic mom? So many labels to today’s parenting styles that it’s hard to make sense of it all. While some of your parenting style will grow and change as you and your children do, you may want to do some searching on the internet, join an online group or and see what you can learn from different parenting styles. After you feel you have enough information, make your own decision on your parenting style and don’t be ashamed of it! Certain things aren’t for all parents. As long as you make an informed decision on what is best for your family and watch for signs from your children that they are healthy physically, emotionally and spiritually – know in your heart you are doing the best you can.
The internet gives us so much wonderful information, but with it comes a bit of judgement. We say away with the mommy guilt and hooray for making holistic, positive choices for YOUR family. And if we make a mistake, there is always a new hour to make a change and start over.
