VibrantWanderer January 24, 2011 at 9:10 am Thanks for these tips! I have stumbled on a few of the same strategies through the fumblings of new notherhood 🙂 While there is a place for open, honest, and detailed discussion, many times that’s not what people are looking for! I heard a lovely phrase recently: Mamasté – the mother in me recognizes and honors the mother in you. 🙂 Laura January 24, 2011 at 1:51 pm I love that phrase and will have to remember it! Thank you! Lauren Hobo_Mama January 25, 2011 at 3:16 pm Mamasté! I love it. Thanks for this article, too, Laura. This is something I have struggled with, and like you said, sometimes it’s a genuine question that I almost miss in my defensiveness! Thanks for the tips on how to respond (or not). Cascia cltalbert January 25, 2011 at 6:04 pm Great tips! I haven’t come across anyone judging my parenting, except for relatives, but even then I usually just ignore it and try not to turn it into a controversy. Sara @ Halfway Crunchy halfwaycrunchy January 26, 2011 at 4:13 pm Fantastic tips! I know that finding an online community was so helpful for since I couldn’t find many local like-minded mamas.
