There’s a lot of online chatter about social media presence as an extension of self.

My heart breaks for the moms who heavily invest time in carefully curating posts.

It’s not only short-sighted to prioritize “impression management” instead of reading to her son or engaging her daughter in conversation…it’s just plain sad.

By relying on others to build her confidence as a mom, she loses opportunities to build up herself by being an attentive parent.
