Mom is 'saving lives' by normalizing less-than-perfect reality

This mom showed off her less-than-perfect house to help parents feel less self-conscious about their homes. Mom and TikToker Emily Feret (@emilyjeanne333) makes videos regularly showing off her sometimes messy life and home. Emily then speaks directly to the camera, saying, “I like to normalize being normal. Life without the filter!”. Emily points the camera at a light fixture on the ceiling of her laundry room, which isn’t working. She then shows the camera an unmade bed, and says, “Here you see my bed! Notice the sheet is off the corner, yet again”. Although the video is light in tone, exposing the realities of parenthood means a lot to Emily’s followers
