Why the Mom’s Code?

v. I’m Not Alone

It was during this period of struggle in Korea that I started to chronicle my own experiences and those of other moms. I learned several important things—

Do you feel judged when your kids do something wrong?

YES NO

Do you feel somehow responsible when your kids make mistakes?

YES NO

Have you ever resorted to doing your child's homework so they don't fall behind in class?

YES NO

Have you ever done their homework to get them to the top of the class?

YES NO

Have you ever admitted to your child's teacher that your child is struggling?

YES NO

Have you ever covered your child's struggles because you were worried about your child being judged?

YES NO

My daughter is struggling with reading, but I don’t want anyone to know, so I hired a private tutor instead, and I spend an hour every night reviewing stuff with her.

Recently my child did not get into the “it” private school and I had to listen to another mom, who is supposedly my friend, rave about how her child got into all three private schools she applied to. It made me feel so bad.
