‘It takes a village to raise a child’ is a famous African proverb that holds true even today. Mothers need the help of people around her to raise her child in the best possible manner. However, in today’s day and age when families are getting smaller since most people are working in the metropolitan cities away from their families, the only two people responsible for the child are the mother and father. The truth of the matter, though, is parenthood is a new challenge for everyone – one they could not have practically prepared for no matter how many books they read or how many stories they hear in advance.
That’s why all moms need to rally for each other. When families get smaller, your friends end up being your family. And when the going gets tough, it’s your mom friends who come to your rescue.
So here are some reasons every mother needs to be a part of a mom group!
Let’s find out!
Support like no other!
There are some concerns only mothers can understand. Talking to someone who is in the same boat as yours makes you feel better because you know that, at the end of the day, you’re not the only one dealing with these issues and that can give you the much-needed boost too!
Another mother may have already experienced what you’re currently going through. While you may be at your wit’s end, there will be someone to advise and guide you through it and that’ll be a huge relief for you! You may not follow their advice but just having an alternate course of action will put your mind to ease.
Prepare for eventualities
There is no handbook for being the best mom or knowing what your kid is going to do next. Talking to other moms will help you anticipate and prepare for situations that may arise with your own little one. This way, you won’t be caught off-guard when something unexpected with your child happens.
We all have bad days and sometimes, all you need to do is vent out. Nobody can lend you a better ear than the moms you’re friends with because they know what it feels like to be overwhelmed with everything that needs to be done – from the pending deadlines at work to taking care of your home to your child. Your mom’s friends will sit and listen to you when needed and give you a much-needed hug!
There’s absolutely no judgment
They are probably the only people in the world who’ll understand why you turned up for the playdate in sweatpants looking like a hot mess! If that’s not a reason enough, I really can’t give you a better one!
