12: How Can I Transform My Mom Guilt?

A Coaching Session with Mandi Brown

In today’s episode, we welcome a wonderful brave, and honest mom as a special guest, Mandi Brown, who is joining us for a free parent coaching interview.

As moms we too often suffer from the heavy weight of mom guilt: Are we doing everything right? Do our children get what they need and not take any harm from our behavior or the decisions we make? How much am I allowed to prioritize my own needs? Is there a work deadline I’m missing? Our negative self-talk keeps running all day long.

It’s our mom guilt that takes our energy NOT our children! Our self-limiting beliefs take away the daily joy that our children bring into our lives and we constantly try to do better instead of feeling enough!

Mandi honestly shares with us that it only compounds when you also have a child with special needs. During this insightful coaching session, I explored with Mandi simple yet effective tools to transform our feeling of not being good enough in just a moment into self-appreciation and inner calm.

Get ready to be uplifted and equipped with practical and easy strategies for supporting your precious motherhood journey, and the well-being of your child and your own.

Simple Parenting Strategies to Transform Mom Guilt

  • Identify an activity in your life that you get lost in and that you can truly relax your mind in. One where you lose the sense of time and space around you. If you don’t have an activity you can identify it is worth finding one – especially one that makes you leave your home and holds you accountable to the activity – like a class.

  • While you are in that state of mind, when you don’t have any stress, can you come up with a phrase, key words or an image that would remind you of how you feel when you are not in that activity?

  • Practice bringing up this state of mind when you feel stress and be more self-compassionate in a way that allows you to honor, so called negative feelings, this helps our whole nervous system to calm down.

  • Can you identify a place in your body that you feel the stress? If you can lay your hands on that spot and bring that image to mind or repeat your words of affirmation and observe how your mindset begins to shift.
