Moving Beyond Mom Guilt with Rachel Bailey
Show Notes

If you are dealing with mom guilt, know that you aren’t alone. You are in good company with so much empathy from me and all the other moms who are trying to move on from it.  That’s why episode 52 of The Positively Living Podcast is about moving beyond mom guilt! 

In this episode of The Positively Living Podcast, Rachel Bailey and I are sharing the importance of understanding that we are all doing our best and guilt and shame do not serve us. We also discuss actionable steps you can take right now to help yourself and your children cope better.

If you’re ready to reduce stress and overwhelm by doing less, yet achieving more, I invite you to join me for a Strategy Session: a heart-opening, mind-expanding, goal-setting session that gives you the clarity needed to determine your best steps forward.

Rachel and I cover the following topics:

  • How guilt and shame work in tandem, and what  traps us and keeps us from taking action
  • What we need to know about children’s behavior, including ADHD and the executive function of the brain
  • How imperative it is to shift our expectations as parents, especially during challenge times (like a pandemic)
  • Ways to reduce the “yuck” and increase our coping skills

The key takeaway of my conversation with Rachel is that, as parents, must start with our struggles first. When we do that, we are much better able to be the parents we want to be.

Thank you for listening! Be sure to tune in to all the episodes to receive tons of practical tips to create space for what really matters in your life.
