    Parents: You Are Not A Cruise Director with Kailan Carr

    Parents: You Are Not A Cruise Director with Kailan Carr

    This week on the You, The Mother Podcast, Abbey welcomes Kailan Carr. Kailan is a mom of two who is passionate about screen-free activities and learning through play.  She is a former teacher with a Masters in Literacy, who founded Quiet Book Queen & Crafts in Between to help parents and grandparents provide screen-free activities for their little ones in an easier, more cost effective way. Kailan shares with us that we are parents are not the cruise for our children and why it is critical for child to be bored. So many of us fall into the comparison trap on social media or maybe with our friends and family about doing amazing adventures, crafts, and activities with our children and it can be really easy to think our children should be doing something great all the time. Kailan walks us through how we can get our children playing independently and how we can foster creativity and independence. Want to stop feeling the pressure to make every moment magical? Let’s talk about it!

    Hiring a Mother’s Helper with Taran Conwell

    Hiring a Mother’s Helper with Taran Conwell

    This week on the You, The Mother Podcast, Abbey welcomes Taran Conwell. Taran Taran Conwell is on a mission to dismantle the watered-down version of self-care in today’s motherhood. She advocates for millennial moms to ask for help, establish boundaries around their time, and regularly attend to their own needs. In a society that wants moms to do it all and be grateful for the opportunity, she’s empowering them to say no and take a freaking break. Taran shares her journey as a burnout mom of three and how getting help was essential for her ability to thrive. Creating our own village can look many ways, but Taran walks us through how we can incorporate a mother’s helper as an affordable option to get the break, connect with or partner, or get some things done on the to-do list. Do you know what a mother’s helper is? Let’s talk about it!
