How to Stop Mommy Judging

Well Rounded NY

Here's the thing: motherhood is personal. All of it. Every decision, every feeding, every embrace... even every poop, for crying out loud. And it should be. So "not taking it personally" doesn't apply here. Motherhood is the most personal thing you'll ever do.

Everyone Should Be Required to See "Inside Out"

I want to take this opportunity to thank all those involved in the production and development of Disney•Pixar's film "Inside Out." The film is named "Inside Out" because it is about the inner workings of the mind, which controls how people behave.

It's amazing how many ways Biblical text can be interpreted and the fact that the same people are willing to interpret the exact same text differently for their own selfish and self-serving purposes, as the need arises.

You told your friend it was nice to see someone like me buy vegetables "for a change." You know, because you have been shopping with me before to see what I buy. You also made the assumption that I do not care about my health.

Why I Want My Daughter To Curse

I'm not ready for Sienna to have her mom's sailor mouth, but eventually, when she's a teen, I don't want her to be afraid of speaking the language of her classmates and once she reaches adulthood, I hope to be ready for her to speak such words in my presence as part of normal conversation because the reality is that cursing is ordinary and sometimes, often even, acts as a release for pent up stress.

Dear Abby, Yesterday a woman wrote to you asking advice about wearing a bikini. She was a plus-sized woman (about 60 or 70 pounds overweight), who wore a one piece bathing suit in public and a bikini top/shorts at home. You responded, and you did something that bothered me.

Believe it or not, the answer can be summed up in one word. Unfortunately it is the most misunderstood word in the English language. It is simultaneously the most fragile and the most enduring trait of human nature.

Would Your Parenting Pass the Scrutiny of a Video Camera?

I think the best thing any good parent can do is be aware of the research and the opinions of experts and use their best judgment. Just try not to pass that judgment onto anyone else.

When our four kids were growing up, I often reminded them that everyone has a story. I would tell them that no matter how grumpy, annoying or unkempt someone may be, there is always a story behind it. I reminded them to give people the benefit of the doubt.

I've always believed that I am one of the least judgmental people to exist on this planet; I'd swear to it in a court of law. But alas, during a day at the beach last week with my best friends and their significant others, I saw myself in a different light.

I find myself a little bit jealous of other women a lot of the time. When they are a little more together, a little more successful -- in their jobs, in wrangling their children, in their wrap dress -- than I am.
