I think we can all agree (no matter what our different parenting styles) that parenting in this decade is just HARDER than in previous years. One major reason why? THE INTERNET. Not only has the advent of the internet brought forth dangers to our kids that our parents didn’t have to deal with, it’s also allowed us to heap a new plethora of worries upon ourselves.
Comparing ourselves unfavorable to other moms? Made 100% easier by all those perfect moms and blogs on Facebook. Judging other moms for their choices? Just a click of a button away. And, all the “advice” that makes you feel like you are doing every. single. thing. WRONG? You can’t get online without being smacked by 100 articles, each containing a list of 14 things you MUST DO to avoid ruining your child’s entire life.
It’s rough out there, mamas.
So I think a little COMIC RELIEF with a side of HILARIOUS TRUTH is in order! That’s why I love this video from funny mums Cat & Nat. Not only did this make me laugh ’til I cried, it laid down some SERIOUS truths about how our own moms managed to raise some pretty awesome kids without ever reading the back of a food box and saying, “IS THIS ALL NATURAL?” or refusing to let us wander out of their eyesight and play out in the neighborhood. Watching it, I totally cracked up, but I also thought about what I can do to be a little more “90s moms” and a little less “hyper aware worried nervous mom”.
What do you think? Were the 90s a better time to parent, or was ignorance just bliss?
