  • There needs to be less judging and more realizing that we are all in this together! It's hard enough raising kids... why not stick together instead of tearing each other apart!

  • Everyone Judges everyone.
    We all have our own views and we all have an opinion on someone else's.
    Even if you don't go out of your way to judge someone you still judge them by disagreeing or agreeing with their choice. Just by having a thought on it and assuming the inside and out of what they believe.

  • Jazz, there is a difference between disagreeing or agreeing and saying "I'm better because..."

    I make choices that are right for my family. I don't assume those choices are right for EVERY family. In that vein, if you make the opposite choice (or at least some of them) I don't presume you're wrong because you've opted to follow a different path than me. I assume you've made the right choice for your family which may or may not mirror my own. That scenario means we're simply finding alternate ways to raise a family but we can agree that both are legitimate, valid choices.

    The other scenario is when I look at your decisions and say "Well I did x, y and z for my family and you did not. Clearly you are wrong because you did not know that X, Y and Z are the proper parenting choices. Therefore you are not nearly as super a mom as I am." :) THAT is judging.
