Diva Dietitian takes the Mom Pledge
Today I am taking The Mom Pledge, which was developed by Author Elizabeth Flora Ross.
“I am a proud Mommy Blogger. I will conduct myself with integrity in all my blogging activities. I can lead by example.
I pledge to treat my fellow moms with respect. I will acknowledge that there is no one, “right” way to be a good Mom. Each woman makes the choices best for her family.
I believe a healthy dialogue on important issues is a good thing. I will welcome differing opinions when offered in a respectful, non-judgmental manner. And will treat those who do so in kind.
I stand up against online bullying. My blog is my space. I will not tolerate comments that are rude, condescending or disrespectful.
I refuse to give those who attack a platform. I will remove their remarks from my blog with no mention or response. I can take control.
I want to see moms work together to build one another up, not tear each other down. Words can be used as weapons. I will not engage in that behavior.
I affirm that we are a community. As a member, I will strive to foster goodwill among moms. Together, we can make a difference.”
And as I mentioned on my personal blog a couple days ago, these are principles that I hope we can all live by online as well as in our real worlds with Moms at school, women we work with and everywhere we go. For some reason, so many of us are competing and trying to one up each other. Instead we should be lifting each other up and helping one another out. There is just no need to be unkind to anyone & remember if somebody is unkind to you, you just never know what kind of day she was having. Two wrongs just never make a right. Thank you Elizabeth for starting this awesome Mom Pledge. To find out more about this and to spread the word, just click the picture above.
