    • Self-Improvement

In this episode, we cover:
Why do we judge moms for using childcare?Accepting the type of mother we are, even if we are different from other moms, and find people who understand and support you. The mother needs to be as happy as her kids: changing the definition of "selfishness" to be "filling" self and caring for self. It's important to acknowledge and accept that ambivalence—even hating motherhood at times— is normal.Mothers are often stretched to the breaking point: asking for help is a sign of strength, not weakness. Laura G. Owens is a writer based in Orlando, FL. Her focus is mind & body wellness, social commentary, sharing hard personal truths and shattering shame.
