Of all the buttons you see on this page, this is the one I’m proudest of displaying (with no disrespect to the others here, I love you all). When I started blogging a mere 2.5 weeks ago, I had my own little pledge. That I will always, ALWAYS write with integrity and respect. That I will comment with genuine honesty and always, constructively. And when I dove further into blogging and discovered a huge community of mom bloggers, I was amazed by the amount of support we have, that we give. That makes me proud. Women are not always bitchy and non-supportive. We CAN be better than that. And so I pledge…….
The Mom Pledge
I am a proud Mommy Blogger. I will conduct myself with integrity in all my blogging activities. I can lead by example.
I pledge to treat my fellow moms with respect. I will acknowledge that there is no one, “right” way to be a good Mom. Each woman makes the choices best for her family.
I believe a healthy dialogue on important issues is a good thing. I will welcome differing opinions when offered in a respectful, non-judgmental manner. And will treat those who do so in kind.
I stand up against online bullying. My blog is my space. I will not tolerate comments that are rude, condescending or disrespectful.
I refuse to give those who attack a platform. I will remove their remarks from my blog with no mention or response. I can take control.
I want to see moms work together to build one another up, not tear each other down. Words can be used as weapons. I will not engage in that behavior.
I affirm that we are a community. As a member, I will strive to foster goodwill among moms. Together, we can make a difference.
Have you taken the pledge?
