All moms raise their kids differently — and these 19 posts are celebrating that.

Being a mom is a beautiful thing, but let's face it, it's also one of the toughest jobs out there.

I mean, moms raise tiny, fragile humans and make sure they grow into happy, healthy, well-rounded grown-ups. No pressure or anything, right?

Well, there can be some pressure. (Or a lot.) Being a mom is an incredibly important, life-changing obligation, so it's only natural for moms to occasionally question how they're doing.

The hard part comes when moms question how other moms are doing. Oftentimes, it leads to harsh criticisms, and that's not great. At the end of the day, moms have so much on their plate that the last thing they need is another person making them feel bad for their choices.

No wonder this so-called "mommy wars" thing is getting way out of hand.

Well then. GIF via "Dance Moms."

Think about it: How many TV shows out there continue to feature mean moms making fun of well-meaning moms? How many "experts" claim that their way of raising kids is the best? How many social media posts shame the methods of other moms? The answer is always far too many.

And while mommy wars may get their fair share of attention, remember that there are so many other powerful voices out there — moms who celebrate that it's perfectly OK for different moms to have different opinions on parenting. Moms that have each other's backs.

So if you're feeling a little overwhelmed, just remember, there are lots of others moms out there who want you to know just how amazing you're doing.

Just check out these 19 awesome posts showing love for all the mamas in the world:

First off — all moms are badasses, and we know it.

Every single one of them is special.

In fact, here's a toast that shows just how special they are.

Here's to the mom who's having a hard day, here's to the mom who may have no one to share that hard day with, here's to the mom who can't wait for bedtime, here's to the mom who is scrapping by today. Here's to the mom who left the tv on a little too long and here's to the mom who wonders if she will ever do this thing right. Heres to the mom who freaking nailed it in the morning and failed in the afternoon. Here's to the mom who smiles at the other mom she doesn't know , here's to the mom who helps the other mom who forgot a diaper and wipes, heres to moms who bail other moms out when they forget that it's pizza lunch and don't send money, here's to the mom who has other moms backs even though they do it completely differently, here's to moms who know this thing is hard and knows everyone is doing the best they can ..... just here's to moms who support other moms.

Yes, parenting is a lot to handle, and it can all seem overwhelming.

But let's not judge other moms on the job they're doing...

...and the comfy fashion choices they're making.

Whether you're a young mom doing her thing...

...a mom who's also her kid's best friend...

...a hands-on mom teaching the ways of the world...

...or a single mom raising the bar...

...other moms have got nothing but love for you.

Some nights may be crazier than others.

Turning up on Friday night like whoa

Motherhood can be quite the roller coaster. But when you have other moms riding that roller coaster with you, it makes all the difference.

It's exhilarating, exciting, and scary at times but ultimately, it's the ride of your life. So show the moms of the world some love, and let them all know just how amazing they're doing. In the end, we're all part of the same family called humanity.

And by the way, HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!

Los Angeles is experiencing a homeless epidemic that was years in the making.

Over the past six years, the unhoused population in the city has risen 75 percent. The city's lack of homeless shelters and affordable housing has forced many who can't afford L.A.'s sky-high rents to live on the streets.

According to LAist, since 2000, renter incomes have decreased by 3 percent while rents have gone up 32 percent.

While the city has launched a $100 million-per-year program to help the problem, rapper, entrepreneur, and actor Jaden Smith has found his own way of responding to the crisis: love.
