Moms pick sex over Face Book!


A picture is worth a thousand words. Or so the saying goes. For busy moms, a picture might very well be worth a whole lot more. Images are fast, easy ways to communicate. They simultaneously show, demonstrate, inspire, prompt and start a conversation without the need of a single word. Remember the first picture your toddler drew and handed you so triumphantly? It probably left you speechless. Images have a way of doing this.

While moms, without question, remain the major decision makers when it comes to household purchases, dads are becoming more involved in the process than in the past.

Moms value the opinions of other moms because they all face the same types of experiences-the good, the bad and the very messy. Marketers employ the use of celebrities for many products, especially those directed at moms and her family. It made us wonder about how celebrity moms are perceived and valued by real moms. Are moms becoming de-sensitized to the portrayal of celebrity moms in the media, or do they welcome it? We turned to our global community of moms in the Moms Human Experience Center to if celebrity moms are welcomed into the “real moms” world.

Posted by Patti Minglin on Feb 8, 7:24 AM

There was a recent article on ParentSociety.com that highlighted the things you should never say to a single parent, which included such gems as “I’m envious of your ‘alone time.'” It isn’t just people who get the single-parent conversation wrong; marketers have long been driven by the single-mom myths often depicting her as a frazzled woman who is overwhelmed with juggling kids, work, and romance and who often feels as if she is alienated from the rest of the “mom” crowd. But, according to a Women at NBCU study, 92% of single moms feel they have more social acceptance than …

How-To Guide For The Fair Treatment Of ‘Mommy Bloggers’
