ABC 33/40 – Birmingham News, Weather, Sports Rising above ‘mom shaming’. Yesterday, I had the honor of being interviewed by a reporter from ABC 33/40 for a story they were doing. Mom Shaming is the title of the story, and I enjoyed very much getting to put my two cents in about being a stay at home mom / part time blogger and photographer. In today’s society many mother’s receive prejudice for making the decision to stay at home or to go back to work. Each side faces judgement and flack for whatever they choose. In this segment, I talk about how I chose to stay at home and how lucky I was to have co workers, family, and friends who supported my decision. Some are not so lucky and are judged by many with whatever decision they choose. A psychologist explains some ways to help deal with those who are not supportive or willing to give you praise for your decision. I hope you enjoy the video!
I’d like to hear your own personal experiences with your decision to stay at home or go back to work. Did you face any hardships from co-workers, family, or friends? Are you happy with your decision or do you find yourself wanting to do the opposite of what you chose? Was your decision long term or did you just temporarily make a decision for your family?
