Mom shaming

You know, I am lucky enough to have not experienced this personally. Maybe it's because I try to only surround myself with positive people, or maybe it's because I don't do anything "shame-worthy."

I honestly don't know if there is anyway to actually accomplish this... Can a mom even be stress-free? My son is 1 1/2, and he is the light of my life. He's my truest love, my best friend, my motivation, my joy, my everything.
