Do you have a favorite child? (Ooh! That’s a scary question, isn’t it?)
Maybe you might sometimes feel that you don’t even like your child?
How can you say you are a good parent if you even entertain these feelings, if only for a second or two?
Even before you can address these ‘terrible thoughts you push them away into the depth of your being - hoping that they will never resurface; leaving yourself racked with the Mum guilt.
In this episode, Triinu explains how she has bonded with one child better than the other - and the impact this has had on all their relationships.
We discuss the ‘Mum Guilt’ - and how the first step to happier family life is forgiving yourself.
Want to know more? Then grab a cuppa - and keep listening!
More about Triinu :
Triinu is a happiness coach from Estonia.
She’s a mom for two amazing young boys who have given her two such different experiences of motherhood.
Her coaching journey is mostly influenced by her postpartum depression and how it has affected her whole life and her relationships. Her declining mental health as a young mum led to break-ups, alienation from friends, feelings of depression, feeling unloved and guilty for not "loving" her son the "right way".
“Now I am so eager to help women, moms especially to change their perspective on mom guilt and being a mom in general.
I believe there's no such thing as a bad mom. Every mom is special and every mom needs to be valued for her efforts.
Most importantly - There's no such thing as failure, there are only lessons. You choose your attitude towards them.”
