NEXT (New Zealand) - - Behind The Scenes - Jess

The ar­ti­cle on burst­ing the ‘self­ish woman’ myth re­ally hit the nail on the head. As a mum I find it quite hard to make de­ci­sions about my chil­dren with­out think­ing about what other peo­ple might think of me as a mother, or just do­ing things for my­self with­out feel­ing self­ish or guilty. To be hon­est, I’ve also def­i­nitely judged other women on their moth­er­ing choices or fam­ily sit­u­a­tion, and read­ing the ar­ti­cle made me de­ter­mined to stop and be kinder.
