Yes, our feeds are full of beautiful pictures of your kids in our clothes. But, here's the big thing about being in the parenting community, in particular, on social media: life is HARD. Parenting is HARD. AND, it is full of joy and beautiful moments. That's why I believe in sharing the imperfections of life. It does no one any good to feel like their life somehow isn't measuring up to the #instaperfect lives they see on social media. That's why we talk about the hard stuff. We strive to #helpatiredparentout and to be #raisingchangemakers together. We are not in this alone. When we share the truth, we lift one-another up. And isn't that what these silly platforms were about to begin with?
How do you engage on social media? Do you filter out all the not-so-pretty moments? Or do you share what you can to #keepitreal?
