If a woman tells others about a stressful day she's had at her workplace she will likely be given empathy and provided with solutions to solve her issues. The same doesn't seem to hold true in motherhood.
We've all heard the term "helicopter mom" to describe moms that are over-protective and overly involved in their children's daily activities. These moms frequently over-stay their welcome and hyper-manage everything.
When we listen to one another without condemning another's needs, we are all better. We provide a space that is non-judgmental, supportive and provides mothers with the same embrace that they give their families.
