What's the opposite of warrior mom?

I am not a warrior mom.  My kids learn differently than other kids, and I learn differently than other adults.  They enjoy different things, and act differently.  Again, so do I.  I am not searching for a miracle treatment, or practicing "skills" 24, 7.  We are just being us.  Sometimes I feel judged for that, like I don't want good outcomes for my kids.  That's not true.  I want all the best for my kids, but my idea of best differs from that of the warrior moms.  I want my kids to be proud of who they are, just as they are. I want them to be with people that make them happy, and do things that make them happy.  My goal is not the appearance of typicality.  No one in my family is typical, but our atypicality makes us who we are, and who we are is pretty great.
