Listen in as popular parenting podcaster Abigail Wald coaches real mothers grappling with parenthood just like you, and walk away with simple yet profound #mindflips that will completely redefine how you see motherhood, and what you are capable of.
Myth #3: Parenting is Personal, Not Political
In part 3 of the 4 Top Myths of Motherhood, we debunk Myth #3, that parenting is personal, not political. Abigail explains that parenting is indeed "doubly political" - not only is our parenting deeply affected by politics, but our parenting can also affect politics in turn. Together, we will look at ways politics affects parenting. And then we will shift our lens to look at the power we parents have in creating the world we want to build for the next generation.
Myth #2: It’s Our Job to Give Our Kids Consequences
In this episode, Abigail takes on the holy grail of parenting: the idea that kids need consequences and that we have to be the ones to give it to them. She shares with you the story of a daddy and some Sunday morning pancakes and through that, she introduces you to her concept of pre-work, which helps you turn the inevitable moments of discipline into connective moments of learning.
Myth #1: Does Having Rage Make Me a Bad Mom?
The first in a 4- part series examining the myths of motherhood. This week we’re looking at rage and what it means if we have it. So many of us good mothers (me included) have found ourselves in moments of explosion, shocked that we have a dark side to our love. In this episode, Abigail explores 3 core sources for this rage and shares how rage is actually a gift as long as we know how to use it. Listen in if you dare.
How to Take the Break You Deserve
Parenting can feel relentless, so we get used to over-riding our own needs. We think "who else is going to do it if I don't" but perhaps the better question is "if I don't take care of myself, who will?" I give you my "tap out strategy" so you can take the break you need even if you're single parenting. Because we both know you can't give to others (including your kiddos) if you don't give to yourself.
A MindFlip to Help Your Marriage
There's a sneaky little thing we often do to our partners that really sucks. We think it will help or make us feel better, but all it really does is create a divide. Listen in as Abigail reveals what this one thing is and what habit we can put in place instead.
Making the Best of a Covid-19 Mother's Day
While brunch at your favorite restaurant, or a day at the spa may not be in the cards for you this particular Mother's Day, you can take plenty of heart in the fact that one thing Covid-19 has not cancelled is motherhood. Turns out we are indeed among the most essential workers of all. So while your crew will most certainly pour some love on you, there are a few gifts ONLY YOU can give yourself. Listen in as Abigail shares a three-part framework on how you can do just that.
Customer ReviewsSee All
I’ve been listening to Abigal since she was on Hand and and Parenting. Several times during my daughters toddler years that was my life line. Her mind flips are perfect - less than 10 minutes which means I can go listen to her even in the middle of my day or especially in the middle of a hard moment. Abby - thank you for helping me grow and learn and become the parent I want to be. Please keep being such a loving and thoughtful light to the world!!!
Very very useful advice
I have been listening to Abigail for some time now with her previous podcast with Hand in Hand Parenting. I love the way she explains things, the metaphors she uses because it always hit home with me. I am constantly looking if there are new episodes available and even though short episodes are nice sometimes, I could listen to her much much longer. Thanks for your help in this parenting journey.
