I’ve written here before about the onus of healthy eating falling to moms. About moms feeling guilty. As things shift in larger culture, moms are telling me that they feel more “on the hook” than ever, and I feel it too.
Our grown up anxieties are spilling over onto our kids, and these days I don’t know how we’d ever completely exempt them from adult worries. Instead: I urge us to get our coping skills in place; feeling the feelings and making space for our kids to do the same.
I was on Facebook live recently, talking about holding space for our kids and I’d love you to check it out here.
Please don’t get distracted by the water I splashed on my shirt. Snort. #LetMomOffTheHook
