Sister Wives followers don’t always confine their interest to Kody Brown and his four sister wives. In fact, their adult children also garner many followers. Maddie Brown Brush, Janelle’s daughter took to her Instagram to unload about comments on education and mom-shaming. Actually, she’s just sick of it, feeling how moms choose to get an education and raise their kids is their own business.
Sister Wives‘ Maddie Brown Brush opted for being a mom she says on IG
Many followers of women, and not just Sister Wives women, tend to criticize people for not getting an education. Those who become moms in favor of completing college often deal with nasty comments. That ranges from the 90 Day Fiance franchise, through Counting On, and other reality TV shows. Maddy Brown Brush addressed this on Instagram in a long rant. She posted up that she’s “sick of hearing people rag on moms who choose the mom thing, and moms feel ashamed for choosing the mom thing!”
In her post, Maddie also wrote, “Its not your business, its not your family and its not your place to have an opinion. Be supportive of moms! They are raising the next generation and whatever they choose is best, support it dammit! (sic).” Maddie argued that “some moms choose to do just the mom thing,” noting that’s what they feel is “best for their family.” Maddie’s angry that people shame moms. In fact, she mentions those who finish an education slowly while raising kids should not suffer shaming either.”
Fans of Maddie agree mom-shaming over education’s a bad thing
Many Sister Wives fans agreed with Maddie on her stance about education and mom-shaming. Here’s what some of them said in reply to Maddie:
- @Dan**: “There’s nothing wrong with old fashioned traditional values and having a family young and not focusing on a career.”
- @Smo**: “I chose to be a mother & [I] have never regretted it a day in my life! I know my choice was & is what is best for our family.”
- @Lit**: ” I totally agree with you. I am a mom of two who never went to college and I made it work.”
- @Tar**: “You do you and your family. Everyone else doesn’t matter!”
Others mentioned that even single moms end up with mom-shaming because they need to work outside the home. They all try their best to give their kids the best, the best way they know. Others noted that in their case, they work as they have a better education and dad stays home with the kids. They too, suffer mom-shaming.

Let's talk about something for a minute. Something that may have some controversy to it, but I feel EVERY MOM needs to know. Your education level does not define if you are a good mom or not! Just because you do not have a degree you are not automatically a bad mom. You shouldn't feel like you are either! So often I hear moms say, almost ashamed, that they chose to be a mom instead of an education. Our society almost has it so that we believe that. I struggle with it! I hear all the time that I would be a better mom, a better provider if I had an education. I get comments of how its such a shame that I had a baby and didn't finish my education. This is simply not true. Now I am not saying an education is a good thing to have, or that it isn't beneficial, but it should not define our abilities to mother! I am not sorry that I chose the option that was best for my family. No mom should be! Whether you chose an education or not, you did what was best for your family. Some moms choose to do just the mom thing, its what is best for their family. There is no shame in that and moms should not ever feel inadequate for not doing what so meone else though best. No mom that chooses an education should be shamed for choosing what I best for her family. No mom that does both, college slowly and stay home, should be shamed for it either! I'm so sick of hearing people rag on moms who choose the mom thing, and moms feel ashamed for choosing the mom thing! Or people ragging on moms for doing college and a career and moms feeling like they packed somehow! Its not your business, its not your family and its not your place to have an opinion. Be supportive of moms! They are raising the next generation and whatever they choose is best, support it dammit!
Is Mom shaming out of hand?
The whole point that Maddie Brush tried to get across is that whatever type of mom you choose to be, is your choice. She feels very strongly that nobody should accuse moms because they choose a lifestyle for their own family. Bluntly, as she points out, it’s nobody’s business.
