Our time and energy are consumed with the wellbeing and care or our children and significant others.

More
Topic: “One of the greatest tragedies in life is to lose your own sense of self and accept the version of you that is expected by everyone else.” As someone who suffer(s) from Postpartum Depression, there’s the mask that everyone is fine, everything should be fine. We create versions of portray to the outside world, when deep down, we are suffering. We act out of character. We are tired. Hopeless. Overwhelmed. Moody.

More
Topic: In prior episodes, we’ve discussed Free-Range Parenting. There are other styles including Helicopters, Tiger Moms and the like. Today we will be discussing Snowplow parenting. From the cited Today’s Parent website, this is a fairly newer ‘parenting technique’ that has caused controversy regarding its practice.

As moms, we strive to create a ‘mom village’, that supportive community of neighbors and friends to occasional cry with, vent, and assist with children when you're in a pinch....We ask, need and yearn for it, with arms wide open. Sometimes, the arms feel heavy from waiting so long, and so we retreat. Maybe, it’s too abundant that we treat because it’s too much to sort out (maybe?). It takes a village to raise a child, and it cannot be done alone. That moment of vulnerability ...Is it me? Am...

Hopefully, the fruits of motherly/parental labor manifest as they become morally sound, independent adults (by society standards). For some, this transition for a mother can be a overwhelming experience. How does one successfully navigate the college...

You’ve studied hard, and have found yourself at a decent job. You’ve accepted the work environment may not be “diverse”. However, we continue the work grind battling the microaggressions and curious questions surrounding your culture.
