Advocating for mothers can look like standing with a lost child and keeping them calm. Imagine if you knew that your child losing their way in a mall didn't mean fear and anxiety but rather communal support and understanding. Turning your head for a moment does not make you a bad mom, it makes you a woman, a looker, a dreamer, a window shopper, a feminist, a lover and a person. Turning your head shouldn't come with guilt, it should come with support in knowing that we all need a moment to look sometimes.
I am a mother, not a wizard. I share what is hard, what is scary and what is real. The rest I leave to you.
