The Good Mother.

The Good Mother.

This mom admits to falling prey to the voice of the 'good mother' that exists inside all of us. Join her in her attempt to combat this voice: http://www.elephantjournal.com/2013/09/the-good-mother/

"I’m a good mother. Say it with me, even if your kid is wearing a yogurt shirt today like mine is. Say it if you have no idea what’s for dinner. Say it after you raise your voice because your kid won’t get in her freaking car seat. Say it out loud to yourself. Say it to your friends or your wife or your own mother."

Join the conversation. Tell us, what are you doing when you hear the 'good mom' in your head nagging the loudest?
