The answers to these questions rely on the era wherein they’re asked. All over history worldwide, mothers have been acclaimed and demonized. Their instincts have been ruled and questioned always. And they are the ones feeling the most guilt upon themselves amid the periods where they spend the majority of time with their kids.
Read on 5 ways motherhood has changed over the years, Hope you’ll find it interesting:
1. More mommies have started working from as well as outside the home…
It’s without a doubt that more millennial mothers are bringing in a paycheck these days as compared to in the past. As many get the opportunity to back to their entitled job/role, due to lack of employment opportunities many millennial women(me included) are opting to stay at home with their children or choose to work from home.
2. Moms also spend more time with their kids
The reason if you may ask so is simply that they want to! This is one of the beautiful aspects of being a millennial woman as we are an empowered generation, yet we’re traditional too. Not only mothers, but even dads are also actually spending more time with their kids today as compared to in the past. And this increase happened because earlier mothers really spent very little time with their kids, due to the household chores. Today, moms spend less time on household chores as well as spend less time being engaging or alone with the chores…Thanks to technology!!!
3. All hail Dr. Spock
Like Dr. Benjamin Spock said to all the mothers, “Trust yourself. You know more than you think you do.” And through this, a perfection is born. Moms are doing everything and performing it well. The only rules are there are no rules!!!
4. The new #coolmom
Moms now feel empowered to raise their kids exactly as they want to raise them. They are choosing their own adventure for parenting their child. The perfect role of motherhood is not coming from books, magazines, blogs etc. There isn’t one expert since everybody is making themselves the expert. In the end, moms aren’t too young and helpless any longer.
Of course, there is still uncertainty and fear going into parenthood. No mother can completely set themselves up for what some would think about the World’s Toughest Job. Although in any case, we can push ahead with no judgment, with no bias, and with a little assistance from Google.
5. Except for other moms
Motherhood and guilt are anticipated to go hand-in-hand nowadays, when we stay at home, we fear we are not adding financially to the family or being/feeling relevant or concern over that kids won’t respect. When we go to work, we fuss over neglecting our kids. When individual feel terrific guilt for not able to do something they turn it outward becoming conceited and judging other moms far more unkindly than in the past, this has stemmed the mommy wars. Mom/Women have become their own worst enemy.
Well here’s a Mother’s Day gift for all mothers” “Everyone else believes you’re doing excellent so lighten up. Don’t be hard on yourself”. And those who still judge you, now you know why they are still judging you!!
Just Be Yourself!
Wish all you Beautiful Women a Very Happy Women’s Day!!
