Mommy Wars Are Real – Adoption.com

adoption educationParents are all too familiar with the phenomena called Mommy Wars. I was watching a Disney movie called Zapped with my older son the other day, and the main character accused her boy crush of pretending to be competitive with other boys in order to be friends with them. He turned the tables on her and said that girls pretend to be friends in order to be competitive. How many of us are guilty of that? We have the choices between organic or regular, formula or breast milk, stay-at-home or working mom, public or private school, and the list goes on and on. Every day people compete with one another in so many areas of life. Parenting is no exception. How far can we take it?

In the adoption community, just like anywhere else, people are often in competition.  How can we support one another and learn to not compare our adoption to the adoptions other people have?  Click here to continue reading the article at adoption.com.

  1. It really is too bad that we all compete with each other in some way or another. I remember being in gymnastics when I was a 7th grader and my dad came to one of our practices. Afterwards he asked why we were so competitive with one another. If we were on the same team it didn’t make sense to see who could do something better than the other one. At the time I didn’t really think anything of it, but looking back we were all trying to prove ourselves in some way.
