Pink Pleads With Fellow Moms To Be Easier On Themselves And Others

SheKnows

On the outside, it may seem like Pink has it all: a Grammy winning career, an estimated $110 million net worth, and a loving husband and two beautiful children.

However, like any other woman with kids, she has faced her own trials and tribulations. The only different thing about her is as a celebrity, every parenting move she makes is constantly scrutinized.

Earlier this month, Pink made headlines when she announced she would be raising her six-year-old daughter Willow as gender neutral. While some of the public has shown their support for the singer's avant-garde thinking, others have criticized her for potentially confusing her daughter in the future.

Despite the critiques, Pink has said raising her two children is both her top priority in life and greatest accomplishment.

"I’m much more mum than I am anything else. Absolutely 100%. They are my everything. It’s the two best decisions I ever made," she said in December 2016. "Every decision I make is a choice because it affects my family. I do bake sales and lemonade stands. I take my kid to school and try to get there on time."

So it's no surprise when Pink took to Twitter and told her fellow moms to stop being so hard on themselves and others.

On Dec. 27, Pink spoke about her encounter with a fellow parent on Twitter.

"A really sweet Mama came up 2me tonight at the grocery store and told me some nice words about how she gets strength from my parenting cause I’m not afraid to f*ck up in public," Pink wrote. "We cried together. It’s so hard."

"Y’all. I wish us mamas could give ourselves and each other a break," she added.

Along with her daughter Willow, she has a one-year-old son, Jameson, with her husband, Carey Hart.

Earlier this month, Pink opened up to Cosmopolitan for its January 2018 edition over her daughter's curiosity about boys, and the advice she gave her.

"She said to me the other day, 'How many boys can I have at once?' And I said, 'Excuse me?' I said, 'Probably none of them because they won’t deserve you,'" Pink recalled.

"They have to be kind, respectful. They have to be chivalrous, they have to be good to their moms," she added.

But the most important advice Pink gave Willow? To be herself.

"It's very boring to be normal," she said. "When she finds the thing that she loves, no matter what it is I'll support her in it."

What do you think about Pink's words of wisdom to her fellow parents?
