What happens when you want to walk out on parenting?
So, today we’re talking about the less sunny side of parenting. And when we say less sunny, we really mean those dark, never-ending winter-like days that are bleak, lonely and cold.
Some of us live in denial of these days – and it’s easy to see why. In a world of social media where every picture seems to radiate warmth and snuggly good feeling, saying your experience is any different can open doors to shame and judgment.
Even when we admit it, it’s often as whispers while we’re alone. “I want to walk out on parenting,” is not something you’d usually proclaim at your mom and toddler group.
If you wanted to keep going, anyways.
But today we’re plummeting those depths in honor of us and in honor of you, because if you have no place else (and we sincerely hope you do – listen to suggestions in the podcast) this should be a safe space.
You all are working so hard at being kind, calm parents – and everyone needs a space to rage.
On the podcast this week, we’re shedding light on:
- Why parenting gets so hard
- At least three things you can try when things get tough
- How to find peace in parenting lightly when life is overwhelming
- One tool you must try to find hope in the hard moments
If you’ve ever dared think you can’t go on with parenting, or if you’ve stuffed those feelings down so long you can barely feel them, we ask you to listen in this week.
