….The Overbearing Advice of the People…..

As new mothers, there are days where we want to just mute our ears due to the advice we hear while in public.  It’s everywhere…everyone has an opinion even yourself.  I know I have opinions and don’t even realize how intimidating they are to others.  We tend to overstep boundaries without even realizing it sometimes.  Honestly I think it is very easy for others to judge when it is not their problem to deal with.

Every parent, especially mothers deserves a chance to get settled into parenthood.  WE ALL MAKE MISTAKES. Trust me there is no going around that.  If you don’t make mistakes you will never learn.  I know…I know….parenting is tough isn’t it, there are days where I question myself based on choices I have made throughout the day.  I think it is important for parents to realize it is okay to take advice, it is okay for others to give advice….but there is a BUT….we should all know when to take a step back.  Sometimes just backing off and just being there for the person you are trying to help is the best way to make the situation better.  I know it sounds silly but sometimes it ends better if you just say “Look I am here if you need anything, or if you want I have some great advice that has worked for me.”  Things like that can move mountains in a situation that seems grim from the get go.  It can change a negative situation to a positive one.  Advice can be intimidating when not asked for in the first place.  Just think about that the next time you feel the need to step in and give a little advice.
