A New Perspective For Moms




"I struggle with my temper."
"I wish I was better at taking time to sit down with my child."
"I wish I was more confident."
Sound familiar? Motherhood comes with doubts. From the moment you hold your first baby at the hospital, and wonder if you've got her cradled the right way to the day your child calls from college with all the questions. There is no map. We're raising little humans here, and it is scary. And some days, the only voice in your head is the one screaming, You don't know what you're doing.
Except you do.
The women in this video were asked a simple question -- to describe themselves as mothers. They expressed those concerns listed above. Then, their kids answered. It's like when Dove had women listen to what other people remember about their faces, only it's not selling soap and is just about parenting (which really isn't a "just" at all).
Press play. Send it to all the mamas you know. Most importantly, believe it.

I have these fears already and I'm not even a mom. I'm sending this to my sister though. Every mom needs to hear this!

I watched this last night...I have all those similar doubts...and after watching this video I looked at my daughter who was running around, laughing, playing with a ball...that's when I realized I must be doing something right. :)

i watched this a bawled like a baby. I want someone to ask my kids what they think of me when I am not around so I can hear what they have to say! :) Such a sweet video. I am glad those mommies got to see that they are too hard on themselves, as we all tend to be sometimes.
