The Mom Pledge

I AM proud to be a mom. I will conduct myself with integrity in all my online activities. I can lead by example.

I KNOW my children learn from my attitudes and actions. I promise to model respectful, compassionate behavior. It starts with me.

I PLEDGE to treat my fellow moms with respect. I will acknowledge 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 treat those who do so in kind.

I STAND UP against cyber bullying. My online space reflects who I am and what I believe in. I will not tolerate comments that are defamatory, hateful or threatening.

I REFUSE to give those who attack a platform. I will remove their remarks 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 we are a community. I will strive to foster goodwill among moms. Together, we can make a difference.
