Beginning your motherhood journey can feel like entering scary and unknown territory. While you might not have all of the answers yet for the best way to be a parent, you definitely know the type of mom you don't want to be. Before you have kids, it's easy to snicker at the helicopter mom or recognize how unbelievably pushy another mama is being with her own child, and it's even easier to make yourself a promise to never act like that.

Whether you refuse to be anything like you "dear" mother-in-law or swear that you'll never become the stage mom, these are the types of moms that nobody wants to be and yet everyone has as a friend.
