Mom doubts

Yesterday I was talking to another mom and she was sharing how she is thinking of homeschooling her preschool daughter next year. She shared how she thinks it's the right thing for her daughter but she still has doubts because she feels like sending your child to preschool is the expected thing. I assured her that whatever she felt was right for her daughter was going to be right.

Sometimes it is hard being a mom. Sometimes you never feel like you're doing anything right. If my kid doesn't have those shoes I'm not a good mom. If my kid doesn't go to preschool I'm not a good mom. If I don't homeschool my kids I'm not a good mom. If I let my kids watch TV I'm not a good mom. If I don't feed my kids that food I'm not a good mom. And the list goes on and on.

Why all these doubts? I have determined not to let media, social pressure and others guide my mothering. And I urge all of you mothers out there to do the same. You know what's best for your children, the choices you make will be the best for your kids. So go on being a mother and don't doubt for one second that you aren't a good one. Don't let the father of lies even put that in your heart for one second. Pray to God for direction and guidance and go on being a great mother free of doubts.
