- "Good moms" don’t get resentful of the time the children take away from them. I do. Can’t they see I am having “me” time. I know it looks like I am just surfing the web or chatting on facebook. But really it is quality me time…isn’t it? OK…I know it is me just searching, but never REALLY finding anything that rejuvenates and reenergizes me. But, technically since it is me sneaking time to do SOMETHING other than caring for my kids, isn’t that “me” time? So please, do not ask for apple juice, snacks, or a video right now. Can’t you see I am busy? See, I am not a "good mom"…"Good moms" would not feel that way about their children.
- "Good moms" don’t snap and yell at their children. Not when they are tired, or on the phone with the electric company, or when they are trying to have an adult conversation with one of their few remaining friends. "Good moms" talk nicely to their children and never yell or “snap” at them.
- An on top of all of this, "Good moms" do not feel guilty for what they should be doing, what they didn’t do, or what they could have done. Because of course "good moms" have nothing to be ashamed of or feel guilty about.
