An ultimate guideline to help mothers learn how to empower other moms. Here are ten helpful ways that will help you know how to strengthen other mothers and enjoy motherhood.
We agree: motherhood can be challenging at times, especially when you are a new mom with no one to talk to. And that’s exactly why blogs like Zipporah Brathen exist to empower other moms! I sat down and came up with the following ways to support every mom out there.
So, let’s get started.
1. Complement them
There’s no doubt that positive complements help boost motivation.
It’s perfect to complement other moms and not criticize them. Appreciate them and tell them what a good job they are doing by taking care of their little ones.
2. Listen to them
It would be helpful if you give another mother time to express her opinion. Don’t shut others out when they talk. Instead, look them in the eye and listen carefully to what they have to say. That little something may be all this mom wants. Someone to listen to her!
2. Offer some help
May be the mom nearby is a new mom. It would be good to help her with some tasks, if possible. Help her walk the path of healing that will allow her not to be stressed.
3. Have fun together
Don’t let everything be about motherhood. Enjoy your hobbies together. This is one of the best ways to empower each other as mothers.
This helps to show that no matter what responsibilities come with being a mother, you can still enjoy what you were doing before.
4. Avoid competition
This is one of the biggest mistakes we women make. We want to make others feel like they are worthless and make them envious. Please, this is not the right way.
We should come together and strengthen each other as mothers.
When you meet another mom, stop telling them how good you are or how bad they do things. It’s not about competing. Instead, offer opinions that can help and empower that mom without making her feel less good.
5. Be there for each other
Form a small group where you can often meet, share experiences and support each other on the journey of motherhood.
That way, you can look out for each other and know when one of you has a particular problem.
