My dreams have come true. Today I’m speaking with one of my very favorite parenting experts, Dr. Laura Markham. Her philosophy of peaceful parenting and her expansive website helped me through some VERY challenging early parenting years and I’m so grateful to have learned about her for the sake of my relationship with my kids. She has an approach that might seem too good to be true at first glance, but she stands firm that by using empathy, emotion control, and appropriate communication, and you can kiss yelling and timeouts goodbye!

Today, we chat about her own motherhood experience, how she got into clinical psychology and this new type of research, and what she hears about most from parents. It literally felt like I had had a therapy session when we ended the call. I hope you have some tangible takeaways from this episode to help you to continuing building a positive relationship with your child.

Rank #18: Episode 65: Letting Go of “Shoulds”

Podcast cover
Read more

How do you think you’re doing as a mom? At the end of the day do you focus more on what you did do or what you didn’t do? Isn’t it sad that so many of us focus more on the things we didn’t do or didn’t do well, when we may have done SO many things right? On any given day, I fall into the comparison trap and find myself sabotaging my thinking by repeating what I “should” be doing. What if we gave ourself more credit and instead of focusing on what we think we SHOULD be doing, we gave ourselves grace and felt confident in the things we ARE doing. Let me know if this episode resonates with you. What are the things you think you SHOULD be doing?

Rank #19: Episode 58: Motherhood Identity with Ashlyn Carter

Podcast cover
Read more
Do you ever struggle with feeling like “you” since becoming a mom? Being a mom changes you, there’s no doubt about it, but it doesn’t mean that you stop being a person with their own needs and wants. For some, this transition happens more naturally, and for others it can prove to be quite a struggle. And with each new season and stage of parenting, I think your identity continues to evolve. Today I’m talking about this topic with my friend, Ashlyn Carter. She’s a mom of three and just recently started a Vlog documenting her life as a mom. We talk about transitioning out of the professional world and focusing on how to continue pursuing your passions. She shares how an unexpected pregnancy ended up being the perfect event to shift her perspective, and much more. You’re going to love Ashlyn.

A mom’s job is never done. It seems like our to-do lists and obligations are never ending. There is always someone that needs us at any given time. There’s truly no other job like it! As much as we might struggle with getting everything done and finding joy while doing it, there are some things we can do that might make things go a little bit smoother. These ideas that I talk about today are from my own life, as well as from the suggestions of our dear listeners. You all have such great ideas to share and I thank you for contributing. Many times it’s not about a big overhaul change we need to make, but about the subtle tweaks that can make a big impact. What are some things you do to help with feeling overwhelmed, time management and organization?

Also I mentioned that I’ve been using Rodan + Fields for my skin. If you want more info on their skincare products you can contact Marissa here.
