Similac Viral Video Reminds Moms to Play Nice

PUBLISHED ON 01/23/2015

Sometimes, motherhood feels a lot like middle school. From the passive aggressive competition to the cliques, it's like we never even left the playground. And now, an unlikely source is calling us out.

Formula brand Similac is welcoming us to the "sisterhood of motherhood." And they created an over-the-top video to remind us just how ridiculous mommy wars can get.

"There’s something going down on the playground," Similac captions the video on YouTube. "Don’t they know that everyone has their own way of parenting? But when it comes down to it, we’re all on the same side. Help us put an end to the judgment by sharing this video with every parent you know."

We couldn't agree more. So, every parent we know, here you go:

Whether you're a yoga mom, a working mom or a babywearing dad, play nice out there. At the end of the day, it's our children's well-being that matters, not a defense of your parenting style.
