As I've been out cruising through the blog world over the past few weeks, I've come across so many interesting ones that it's been hard to keep track of all of them! I found one on twitter (or maybe she found me) that's called The Mom Pledge. I glanced at it before, but I finally sat down tonight and really read it.
From the website: "The Mom Pledge is about bloggers standing up, speaking out, and coming together to eradicate online bullying of moms by other moms. The time has come for us to take the power back and own this issue."
Because this is something that I believe in very strongly, I am taking The Mom Pledge. Bullying in any form - whether it be amongst children, teens, young adults, or adults - is unacceptable. I have been fortunate so far in that I haven't personally witnessed it on the blogs that I visit regularly, but I know it's out there. How can we expect our children to grow up to be respectful of others if we as their parents can't even model how to do it?
So, to all of my other moms who blog - please, go visit The Mom Pledge and take the pledge yourself. Join the community!
