All those other moms are doing it WRONG!

What is it about parents, and people in general, that we get satisfaction from criticizing and sometimes even condemning those that are different than us? When it comes to motherhood I've been on a few different sides of the spectrum. I took two years to be at home with my oldest and was a stay-at-home-mom. I've also given 60+ hours of weekly work to my profession and lived in the capacity of working mom. I've been the super into fitness mom and the hands-off anti-spanking momma type. Boy, did anti-spanking get criticized by our (Latino) relatives.

On all sides of the wide parenting spectrum, I often felt judged. Now this wasn't a constant, but it existed and the following video perfectly captures this competitive parent notion. It also puts things into the best perspective for those of us judging at present or being judged. And every parent falls somewhere on this scale...

Tell me you cried, too? Better yet, tell me you get it!
