I saw the new campaign that Elizabeth Flora Ross has started called The Mom 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 been one of those people who sat back while others were bullied and not stand up for them or step in to try and say enough was enough. I know I should have said something, I should have stood up for those we were being bullied.
I am taking the pledge, I will not tolerate anyone bullying one another. I will not let my friends be hurt by words, and other mean things.
It is time for MOMS to start acting like MOTHERS and what exactly are you teaching your child(ren)? It’s OK to bully others? It’s OK to make someone feel like crap? I don’t think so. In fact I think it’s sad that other moms think this behavior is ok. To sit and poke fun of other people, to go after companies that other bloggers work with and tell them not to work with them and for what? To sit on facebook and twitter making fun of other mom bloggers.. it’s sick and these people need to grow up.
Ive lost friendships over online bullying but I also can not justify being friends with people who think this behavior is ok either. I have to stand up, for myself and most importantly for my children.
I am taking the pledge and I urge you to as well.
