Do You Know One of These Annoying Facebook Moms?

The "Jealousy-Inducer"


It should be the first rule in the parenting handbook to never compare your child to another, but Facebook can easily make us all feel like we (and our kids) just aren't up to par. First words, potty-training, learning to walk... is your feed full of kids who are always just a tiny bit more ahead of the curve than yours?

We all know babies have their own hits and misses. Some sleep as if they are hibernating for the whole season, while others will convince us that all babies are born nocturnal. Some kids love eating peas and carrots and organic green smoothies, while other parents would trade a limb just to get their kid to eat a bowl of mac and cheese. Still other parents might have a toddler whose idea of fun is sitting quietly reading books, while others have a kid who thinks playing is only fun if it involves high-pitched screaming while finger-painting on the walls of Home Depot naked. We should be allowed to occasionally boast about something our child has done, but it's good to stay humble (even though we do have THE best kids ever.)
