Safety online

“Mommy bloggers” generally have a strong dislike of that term, but blogs and various social media offer moms a safe haven for expression.

When moms contribute online, the community becomes a place where they can express themselves honestly. After all, when few people know your real name, you can admit you forgot to pack the sunscreen.

If society didn’t hold up moms to impossible standards of perfection – and we gave ourselves permission to admit we’re not perfect – moms could have the same type of honest communications in realtime that they have online.
