Parenting Successful Teens

Aug 15, 2019

Do you ever feel like no matter what you do, you are screwing up as a Mom?  This feeling of “bad mom-ness” almost seems to run in your head all day like a scolding Spotify playlist.  You want to have peaceful mornings but your teen won’t get up despite having an alarm + three wake up reminders.  And before you know it, you are driving to work feeling like a terrible mom. No matter how many great things you do there is a persistent feeling that you aren’t quite measuring up.

Where does this Bad Mom soundtrack come from?

I don’t need to spend any time talking about the impossible standards women hold themselves too.  And this pressure only increases when we become mothers. But how does it happen that society’s impossible standards become our own?


In this week’s episode of Parenting Successful Teens you’ll learn

  • How society expectations have been around since our mother’s mothers time and been internalized and passed down as a legacy.
  • 2 main expectations that society holds for moms
  • Why free advice on the internet is making us feel crazy and stressed out.
  • How contradictory expectations gaslight us.
  • Why we need someone to point out to us when we are playing the bad mom soundtrack.

Reprogramming your brain to remove society’s impossible expectations benefits both you and your family.  You can both have more fun and be a better Mom but it takes consistent support and accountability.

That’s why I want you to schedule a time to get some support.  Click here to set up a free 45 minute call. On this call, you'll tell me what's going on and I'll offer you a perspective you can't get on your own.
