A prominent blogger has hit out at people who are quick to judge mothers, revealing that there’s no right way to parent or be a mom. According to Sia Cooper, motherhood isn’t a size fits all as what works for one family might not work effectively for the next.
Cooper, who runs a successful Instagram page, The Diary Of A Fit Mommy, equally claims that being a mom is hard enough. If allowing her kids to use technology amidst other reasons make her a bad mom, she gladly will wear the tag around proudly. When Cooper got pregnant with her first child, she had returned to blogging in an attempt to her pregnancy journey and progress.
The ex-nurse became a stay-at-home mom and dedicated her time to creating numerous content. Over time, Cooper had defended stay-at-home moms and had equally revealed her most personal health challenges in a letter to her younger self. She went viral for an honest, open letter to all moms and dads who have dubbed her a bad mom due to her parenting choices. 28K people and still counting have applauded her philosophy, and it’s genuinely quite inspiring to being oneself.
Cooper has two children named Everly, three, and Greyson, 5. She’s currently a personal trainer after numerous women questioned her plans. However, the blogger eventually saw a space that needed to be filled and acquired specialization in Women’s Fitness and Fitness Nutrition via NASM.
‘There’s no easy way out, and one has to listen to their intuition. It’s almost as if you’re damned if you respond, damned if you don’t. You know what’s best for your own family, so trust your gut and don’t care what anyone else has to say or thinks.’ Cooper reportedly said.
For Cooper, it’s tough being a mom in today’s world as social media makes it so easy to be judged and judge others. She has been countlessly judged for using canned goods and for having tattoos. In life, you can’t just win with some people. Accordingly, the mom-of-two believes that stumbling upon a person who judges you for your parenting decisions can put you in a tight situation; therefore, it’s best to do what you know is best for your home.
