“shhhhh. Don’t talk aobut what is difficult for your family right now.” (Except that this is my favorite thing to talk about.)
Far too many parents believe the misconception that it’s a bad thing to show your struggles. We’ve been handed down the unhelpful tradition of silence through our family or culture.

Our parenting pain needs to see the light of day to heal. This means getting the proper help, love and support in safe circles. So why do so many parents think it’s an act of betrayal or weakness to so? Listen in as I outline the two most common reasons. xoxo
