Moms, Share Your Momsplaining Horror Stories

Momsplaining: When one mom condescendingly explains proper parenting to another mom.

OK, so you know what mansplaining is. It’s when a man explains to a woman something they already know, usually in a patronizing way. Wait...did I just mansplain mansplaining? Ack! Moving on!


Anyway, there is something moms have to deal with that is almost as frustrating: momsplaining.

Yup, there are lots of moms out there who take it upon themselves to explain to other moms how to parent their kids.

Perhaps a mom approached you at the supermarket to momsplain that you were getting the "wrong" baby food.

“Oh, honey, you don’t want to feed your baby that brand. It’s not all natural. You want this one. And you know what else, you really should be..."

Or maybe another mom decided to educate you on something as simple as how you're supposed to hold a baby.

"Oh my! Give me your baby. Let me show you what you should be doing."
