It's often a term that often comes with a very negative connotation, and is synonymous with other derogatory terms such as 'attention seeker' and 'over sharer' - or at least it is to the haters. We're a waste of the seemly limited *sarcasm* space within the (absolutely limitless) world wide web. It's a term that makes me cringe when writing - and t's certainly not a term that I would voluntarily choose to describe myself, except, that's EXACTLY the category I fall into.

1. Low, lower, Lower than low...
Lower your standards. Otherwise you will most definitely send yourself a little crazy. When I say ‘lower your standards’ I mean a lot. Take your current standard, and halve it. If you have more than one child, halve that again, and again, and again. And if, like some mums I know, you have 6 kids, just be happy that they’re eating lunch... even if it’s just this morning’s breaky still sitting on the floor (because you’ve been too busy to clean it up).
