If you’re a mom, chances are you’ve experienced some kind of mom shaming. From feeding choices to the working mom vs. stay-at-home mom “debate” (quotes are there because c’mon, let’s be real: most moms don’t have a real “choice” about staying home or working because either child care is too expensive or bills don’t care if you want to stay home all day either) to the constant struggle of helicoptering or free-range parenting, it seems like when it comes to parenting, everyone has an opinion.
But not a new study says that mom shaming may have a scientific basis to it and has a lot to do with the fact that as moms? Most of us are worried that we have no idea what we’re doing in the first place.
This is why mom shaming might never go away.
