Dear Moms: Please Stop Giving Me Advice

Featured BlogHer Network Post

Sometimes in our desire to be helpful we like to tell other women how to live their lives. But can we really say what's right for anyone else? I have a sister-in-law who loves to give unsolicited advice. Don't get me wrong. I love her dearly, but she doesn't always know what she's talking about. Jenn has a terrific short post about this problem at pancake theorem.--Mona

Dear moms,

I love you all. I didn’t grow up with one, but I still appreciate what mine probably would have gone through were she alive throughout my childhood. She’d have to deal with my eye-rolling, snark, mouth of a sailor, and inability to hide the disdain on my very expressive face whenever someone tries to mansplain things to me.
