Finding a “mom squad”

This piece from Scary Mommy stresses the importance of becoming part of a “mom squad,” a group of moms who support each other. I agree! This piece also claims that “other moms don’t judge.” Wish I could agree!  Sadly, patients often tell me stories about being judged by other moms (interesting side note: Scary Mommy is also running a piece about “sanctimommies,” moms who persistently judge other moms). I think the important thing is to find a squad of like-minded and supportive moms, and tune out the rest. Not all moms are squad-worthy!
