Ep 90: Mum Guilt


This episode addresses what I feel gets stamped on our foreheads the moment we become parents. Guilt.

This guilt comes from the stories we tell ourselves about what it means to be a good mum, so, what are the stories you are really telling yourself and how are they currently serving you?? Plus, I answer a question from one of my listeners, who wants to know what to do about toys in the bedroom!

Here are the highlights:
(00:33) Listener question: toys in the bedroom
(05:11) The geography of parenting has changed
(07:31) What is mum guilt?
(15:15) What you do versus what you advise your friends
(18:14) How is your current behaviour serving you?
(23:26) Trusting your instincts
(26:21) Find a support group for your mum guilt
