If you’re a mom, chances are you’ve felt like a bad mom from time to time. We all do it to ourselves, it’s hard to avoid. There’s a lot of guilt that goes along with mothering, and plenty of moms are very hard on themselves. But it’s one thing to think it yourself. It’s quite another to be called a bad mom for the choices you make as a parent or as a person. That’s not to say that there aren’t plenty of bad moms out there! But mommyshaming and judging has gotten to the point now where people will call someone a bad mom just because they don’t agree with her parenting or lifestyle choices. Fitness blogger Sia Cooper is fed up, and she shared an eye-opening post on Instagram addressing the issue.
Sia runs the super popular blog Diary of a Fit Mommy. You may remember her from when she annoyed a bunch of people as the Target workout mom. Sia is serious about fitness, and she puts a lot of effort into finding the time to keep up with her fitness and health routines. But some people feel as though she’s going too far, and they attack her as a mother.
