The article discusses how as Mothers we are constantly labelled with one name or another depending on our parenting style. Of course none of the labels shreik EXCELLENT MUM to the world, but rather highlight one of your faults.
While I may at times be one or all of the other types discussed in the article, Helicopter, Bear, Tiger, Soccer etc. I am happy to now be classified as a Wombat Mum,
"She'd be very warm and fuzzy, and happy to get down and dirty with in a spot of free play with her scruffy brood. Not a fan of weight loss, heavy waxing or animal prints, she'd never win fashions on the school-gate field. But she would always be there to dig the kids out of a hole until they learn to do it for themselves."
How about you, what Mothering style do you think best describes you?
