Stop beating up the Parents

Stop beating up the Parents

Have you ever had a bunch of plans laid out for how things were going to go for the entire week and then by Monday night had them all blow up in your face? Laura came back into the studio to discuss how within 24 hours of the start of the week she had gone from Mother of the Year to Mommy Dearest. Ok, well not really and honestly it was all in her own mind, but I think you understand what we are saying. Sometimes we try to be the best parent we can be and it turns out that we are actually our own worst enemy.

Are you like Laura in that you set your expectations so high that it almost makes them unattainable and then you beat yourself up after you don’t reach them? Laura talks about what has helped her through these times and how all moms can be better without being “good” at all.
