honor roll

‘I missed my daughter’s honor roll assembly so I could go for a walk and burn off anxiety. It’s not selfish, it’s called self-love.’: Woman responds to mom shamers, ‘taking care of ourselves IS taking care of our kids’

“I was struggling deep with anxiety and had a long work day ahead of me. I needed a break. The next day, several moms at school asked me why I wasn’t there with my husband and my mom who was in town visiting. Women were judging me. So much so that they felt the need to privately message me to insult me.”

‘Sure, my boys got a bad grade. Or two. But kindness is more important than the honor roll will EVER be.’: Mom claims school success is all about character, not grades

“I want to know if my kid saw the new boy sitting by himself at recess and looked the other way. Saw the little girl with worn-out, hand-me-down clothes and laughed. If he was rude to his teacher when she got her own math problem wrong. In the grand scheme of things, who they’re becoming will have greater lasting effects.”
