Add in all the new demands of homeschooling, 24/7 interaction, and lack of time with friends, and parenting just became much more! Timely episode for finding necessary balance in parenting!
HIGHLIGHTS OF THIS EPISODE:
– Recognize that parenting can be crazy-making
– it’s OK to realize that you may be feeling burned out as a parent
– How to manage all the balls in the air at your house
– Things to consider when feeling pressed and pressured by parenting
– Why it’s important to do your personal emotional work to be the best parent
– Who says you’re supposed to be a Super-Mom, anyway?!!
Oh, more pressure! Somehow, the idea is often promoted that you’re supposed to be best, most, top, smartest, most effective, most productive, most involved, ever-present parent…in order to be good enough! NO! NO! NO!
Who really told you that you’re supposed to be a “SuperMom?”
Who’s deciding that?
Do you value what they’re up to or how they live?
Do you–should you–care what others think?
Have you examined what “good enough” parenting is FOR YOU?
Big topics worth talking and thinking through! If you don’t, you can get caught up in the generalized idea that you’re not doing a good enough job of anything! Ever been caught in that “slush bucket?”
Today, Kimberly Lou and I discuss where we get our ideas of what makes a good mother, even a great mother. It may not be what you’ve accepted, or been told and not examined. Freedom!
Kimberly has a valuable distinction: the difference between creating harmony rather than balance. You’ll want to engage with that thought in this episode. She has some other provocative thoughts that will help you clarify your thoughts, feelings, beliefs, and choices about parenting.
Oh, and Kimberly knows a few things about toxic relationships, too. Tune in.
