We had both written about the Instagram dilemma from different perspectives.
Once again, I was reminded that there are no "right" answers. Through trial and error, we all make the best parenting decisions that we can.
The choices that I make are not an attack on those who choose differently.
I am a more vigilant parent because of the dangers pointed out in her piece. I am grateful for her perspective.
Sharing our choices in a public way is a vulnerable place to be. As I read the comments on her post, I held my breath. I was fearful that someone would lash out at her for her choice. Images of the "mommy wars" myth danced in my head.
The comments were thoughtful and honest and respectful. It made me want to smooch every single commenter. It made me want to hold hands and sing songs!
So, to all of you that comment on our blogs, know that we are grateful. We are vulnerable and we are thankful that you read our perspectives and comment with grace- even when you disagree. Thank you.
