I have taken The Pledge!
The Mom Pledge is about bloggers standing up, speaking out, and coming together to eradicate online bullying of moms by other moms. The time has come for us to take the power back and own this issue.
I have never heard of online bullying of moms by other moms. To tell the truth, I never thought it was an issue. We are MOTHERS!!! We don’t have the right to act like children whether it be online or not. I recently saw another Mommy Blogger post about taking the pledge and I am joining the movement too.
Taking the pledge means a lot to me. Other than the points listed below, I believe as Mothers and especially as Bloggers we have the responsibility of showing our generation and the future generations what kind of behavior we expect of them. As long as we treat each other with respect then maybe others will do so in kind.
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.
