So very true. Instead of criticizing let's unite and give ourselves credit for doing what we personally think is best. Parenting is hard as hell.

Anyone who says parenting is easy has never been a parent.
We parents, especially moms, need to support each other and lend a hand/shoulder/ear whenever we get the chance.

The singer has previously revealed how she is raising her daughter Willow as gender neutral in order to prevent the youngster from feeling like she has to be defined by womanhood.
The 'Beautiful Trauma' singer told People: "We are a very label-less household. Last week Willow told me she is going to marry an African woman. I was like, 'Great, can you teach me how to make African food?'.
"And she's like, 'Sure mama, and we are going to live with you while our house is getting ready'."
We salute you, P!nk!
