5 Parenting Tips Only A Millennial Mom Would Give

5 Parenting Tips Only A Millennial Mom Would Give

Parenting has never been a one size fits all thing no matter what generation you were born and raised in but I'm beginning to notice some patterns with millennial moms that weren't so common with generations before us. 

Self-care is essential. 

I'll give it to them. Gen X (and before) parents and grandparents were devoted! Not saying we aren't devoted as parents but I feel like the stress on taking care of yourself to be the best parent you can be is so much greater than before. I seriously have learned (and am still learning) that you have to live for yourself in order to be the best for your family. I'm not talking about going to the club every weekend and leaving your kids home alone. But even small things like stepping away and taking a break for a few minutes has helped me to keep it together throughout the day. Do what makes you happy because a happy parent raises happy children.

Serena Williams Forgets the 1st Commandment of The Internet - Thou Shalt Watch What You Say or Be Druggeth for Filth!

Serena.... 

In an interview with Australian magazine Stellar, Serena is quoted about her feelings on giving birth saying, "I am about to be a real woman now, you know? It's going to be something incredibly impressive to go through". 

Baaaaaaybeh! Fans and haters alike are BIG MAD at that quote. While I don't think Williams was necessarily trying to take away anything from women who don't give birth whether by choice or not, she forgot the golden rule of being in the spotlight, choose your words carefully! Nonetheless Williams had a fun-filled weekend celebrating "Baby O" and I'm sure the impending arrival of baby makes it so much easier for the champion to brush off the negativity.
