Is It Possible For Snooki to Be "a Good Mom?"

By dadcamp |

It didn’t take long after Lorenzo Dominic LaValle was born for the snark to come out. The twittersphere exploded in a stream of sarcastic tweets after it was announced that The Jersey Shore‘s Nicole Snooki Polizzi had given birth to her 6 pound boy on Saturday.

Most of them were not kind.


When you look at her resume, and past behavior, it’s not a long leap to wonder if Snooki is worthy of this parenting job we all take so seriously. But … what if she is “a good mom?”

Now that’s a loaded definition the Mommy Wars have been debating for years, but isn’t it possible that Snooki can be “a good mom?”


The Mommy Wars are fought because we all have a different set of rules for what we consider reasonable parenting. I think you’re crazy for taking your kid to McDonald’s, you think I’m crazy for not taking my kid to church.

You see? Two sides of a coin that is, most often, one that is about loving our kids and doing the best for them. Even the most terrible of mothers still loves her kids to the depth of her soul.

So, can Snooki be “a good Mom?” By her definition of what that means, she’ll probably be a perfect mother, and some of my friends agree.

“I’m sure Snooki will be a great Mom,” Samantha Nickerson said. “Time proves all.”

“So what she used to party. I was a HUGE partier, as soon as I had my son I never wanted to leave him,” added Alycia Dawn Mari. “As long as she does what works for her family and that child is safe healthy and happy who cares?”

Is it possible for Snooki to be a good mom? Absolutely. But just as The Mommy Wars will never truly end, I’ll still think she’s crazy.
