Alpha Mom

What does Alpha Mom mean?

The top dog mom in a group of moms

An alpha mom is a mother who has a strong presence and influence over other moms in her social circles. She strongly believes in her own perspectives and opinions, often considering herself to be always correct.

When a group of mothers gather, an alpha mom is the one who naturally takes charge. She tends to control the group’s behavior and is usually the first to express her disapproval or anger.

Alpha moms may not be beneficial for group discussions, as they have a tendency to take over the conversation. This can lead to a lack of diverse opinions and ideas, as the alpha mom’s views tend to prevail.
