I don't know whether everybody is aware of Mom Shaming or not but if you are reading this, then I am sure you might be interested to know more about it.
Before proceeding, it is necessary for you to know what Mom Shaming exactly is- it is the conscious or unconscious effort to let down the upbringing of other mothers.
Whether you are a victim or a wrongdoer, the following Mom Shaming trends need to be stopped because there are many other social issues that are required to be raised.
Breastfeeding is the biggest issue under this because feeding babies in public become a tough matter for mothers. They are criticized for feeding while peeing in open is still not a shameful thing for men.
Wonderful! Another important matter under this is the problem of mothers not being able to feed their babies because of some biological reasons.
This comprises of three cases--
1) When a mom goes to work, she is criticized for abandoning her baby in the hands of others.
2) When a working mom stops earning, to look after her child, she is criticized for being a dependent wife.
Mom Shaming automatically leads to baby shaming by the same people, where the child is being compared and expected to be a perfectly normal child with no disabilities.
People are addicted to saying- "My child never does that" or "Oh my god, your kid still hasn't been able to do this?".
I mean what is it? Frustration or superiority complex? How can an innocent child be a victim of your comments?
This concept is directly related to a mom's appearance, where it is assumed that a well-groomed mother will be a better parent than the one who remains shabby or careless regarding her clothing.
What is it? Where is it written that a mother who remains tip-top will upbring a child to be smart irrespective of her motherhood?

Imposing things which you like on kids or see appropriate is not a way every parent adopts rather some mothers like being cool and friendly with their children by letting them act their age. But this way is not digested by all and they start commenting.
Parents of the same sex are not easily digested by everybody, in other words, anything which is not normal is not accepted by people and as a result, they are isolated from the society. In such cases, mothers have criticized that their child is not real.
Instead of appraising them for handling the home, child, and work altogether, people love to disgrace single moms for depriving the kid of the love of his father.
