I don’t know about you, but I’ve struggled with a lot of mommy guilt over the past seven years I’ve been a mom:
“Am I doing enough?”
“Are my children eating right, getting enough sleep, getting enough fresh air and exercise?”
“Am I spending enough quality time with them?”
“Should I be doing more of X with them and less of Y?”
And then I’ve felt like a bad mom for having so much mommy guilt. Yes, I know, I’m hopeless!
In talking to other moms, I know I’m not alone. If you’re a young mom who is feeling discouraged in your mothering today, I wrote an article over on MomLife on 8 Ways to Be a Better Mom to Young Children. It shares some of the things I’ve learned–mostly through error–as a young mom.
I hope it can be a blessing to some of you who are exhausted and overwhelmed in your mothering!
