Funny New Trending Topic: #momshaming

We’ve seen our fair share of trends on this blog.

We’ve taken a look at the Tiger Mom method, RIE parenting, and attachment parenting theories. We’ve praised the CTFD method and endorsed an end to the mommy wars.

And now there’s a new trending topic on Twitter called #momshaming.

The new trend began as #petshaming — showcasing cute photos of household pets with humorous ‘confessions.’

My thoughts? Been there, done that!

While I think #momshaming is funny, honest, and real, it needs a new title. To me, no good can come from shaming anyone. Moms have a tough job – and the above confessions are great – but maybe it should be called #momconfessions or #momskeepingitreal or #mommytalk instead?

My biggest #momshaming confession, you ask? Putting the kids to bed without brushing their teeth and a storybook because I’m dying to watch the latest episode of Homeland.
