Backlash Against Alpha Moms

USA Today reports that those highly educated, achieving Alpha Moms are experiencing some backlash from "slacker moms" who don’t like all the pressure to be perfect. In describing the "anti-Alpha movement," Sharon Jayson wrote: "Those moms have it together sometimes. They may forget to send back permission slips or lose track of their turn for team snacks. They don’t necessarily have the catchy name, though some call themselves Beta Moms or even Slacker Moms as they urge their peers to chill." (May 2007)
