In this solo episode, I share my own struggle with the Good Mother/Bad Mother narratives that play in my head, sharing stories from my early motherhood years, how I've changed and grown, and how I still struggle to re-frame the narratives that I receive from our culture, my past, my family of origin, and my own inner pressure to be a "good mom."
Most importantly, I talk about how being a Good Mom isn't about fulfilling a list of standards or rules, but how it relies on the unique relationship between mother and child and how to lean into that relationship in order to make those inner voices quieter and the bonds with our children stronger.
