National Motherhood Decisions Survey: What Moms Need

This past week I prepared and attended New York City Comic Covention and previewed some awesome new graphic novels for kids coming out soon or later this year. So be on the lookout for future posts on The Dumbest Idea Ever (a memoir by Jimmy Gownley); Battling Boy (a superhero boy battling monsters that looks like loads of fun and adventure); Dogs of War (a book about dogs and soldiers across three wars by Sheila Keenan), and more...

But in the meantime let me share and infographic this week...

In conjunction with the StrongMoms Empower program, the National Motherhood Decisions Survey was conducted to gauge how moms feel supported or judged. This infographic illustrates the survey findings, which include: 95 percent of moms have felt judged or criticized; one in three moms makes parenting decisions to avoid criticism; nine out of ten moms notice a positive impact on kids when they feel supported.

  3. Interesting.... and plenty of food for thought there.

  4. This is absolutely true. It goes for young mums surrounded by older and "Wiser"(?) women who never stop telling you how you have to behave.
    Fortunately I am happy with my children even if they do something different from what I used to do. Every body has the right to make one's own mistakes.
