Why I Watch Other Moms.
You are probably here because you are curious as to why I watch other moms be mom.Right? Why would I do something like this? I don’t do this to be creepy, or rude, I promise. I have come to find that watching other moms gives me lots of insight and inspiration on how other woman parent their children. I like to soak in why other moms do what they do. Does this just sound terrible? Why do I watch other moms?
This is why….
Why I watch other moms be mom…
You know how you talk on the phone, and by the age of one your child is doing as you do? They put your cell up to their ear and do that cute baby talk. (My little girl just learned to do this and it melts my heart.) This is because they learn from watching you. What you do everyday gives them an example of how they should act. All of us do that too… watch. We tend to watch others to see how they do things.I feel like there is so much I can learn from other moms. And a great way to do that is by watching.
To apply education.
When I see something that another mom does with her kids that can be educational I love to watch. I already know I want my kids to get an education. Maybe I can apply the same method with my child if I think it will be beneficial to them. I think learning on how other moms apply education to their kids is so awesome.
This is a touchy subject for a lot of mommies. We all can be very opinionated on where the line is when it comes to disciplining our children. What works for one mom doesn’t always work for another. So why would I watch where and how other parents draw the line? Because I see how it affects their kids. I see how some kids are well behaved and how some know there boundaries, and some don’t. This helps me decide where a good balance will be for me to apply with my kids when it comes to their mannerisms.

To Not Compare.
I just read a amazing blog posting by Liz Farris
If you have a minute you should read it for sure. You won’t regret it. She goes into a little bit on how all moms go through so many trials but we are all great moms in our own way. This is the best way to say it. We are all great moms.
I don’t watch moms to compare. I watch because it is so amazing that through different types of parenting you can get so many wonderful adults in world from all these opposite parenting decisions. Some moms always have a clean house, some moms can’t cook, some moms have stronger discipline methods than others. But in the long run, most of these children are still brought up to be kind, educated, and all in all genuinely unique beautiful people. I don’t watch to compare, I watch to not compare.
All these mothers around me are truly amazing! I find it a great blessing to be able to watch and learn from them. They have the greatest job in the world raising their children. Yes, I watch to admire all the talents they put to use everyday. Seeing all there talents gives me hope that one day I can achieve or grow the areas I lack in as a parent. But above all I enjoy watching how much they all love their kids. These moms would do anything for the children they have. It is so inspiring!
Why I watch other moms.
So yes, I watch other moms. And I hope I always will. They inspire me in so many ways to be a better mom myself. One day I hope I will have grown enough that another mother will look at me and admire how I parent my kids, or learn from my mistakes. I don’t watch to be creepy, or to judge. You know that now. So to all you mothers I have contact with, weather it be seeing in church or social, or seeing your personalities come through my computer screen.
Thank you and Lots of Love
