My choice to no longer Trick or Treat has become a bit of a heated topic for me and family. I decided this year to put my foot down and stand up for what I believe and what I think is best for my son.
I was just 19 years old when I gave birth to my son.
I was young and totally lost as what I should do as a new young mom. Not only was I young, I was alone. Here I am, at just 19, with a child and his father is not around. It wasn’t just hard, but it was scary.
As a new mom, I was bombarded with all kinds of unwanted advice and suggestions. Though the thought behind the advice was what counted, it was still unwanted. I often found myself trapped. I didn’t know if I should raise my son the way I saw fit or be a people pleaser and do what others thought was right.
This is why, now, after 7 years… Trick or Treating is no longer for my family.
A“I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for AVEENO® Eczema Therapy. I received product samples as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.”
Did you know that over 30 million people in the U.S. live with Eczema?
This is something i was unaware of. And to think my son is one of those folks! =(
