S06|04 - When Parenting is Hard

Mar 06, 2023

“If the pain was deep
you will have to let it go
many times”
-Yung Pueblo

Parenting can be really challenging at times… even when we are working so hard at it. This episode is for those times. When we feel the heaviness of parenting… when we feel a little bit in the dark (Sue Monk Kidd calls is the Holy Dark), when we feel like the world is spinning. THIS episode is my message to you. I hope it brings you the comfort and guidance you are seeking.

NOTE: if you have suicidal thoughts or need mental health help, please reach out to a medical doctor and someone you love, as this advice is not meant to be a replacement for that.

On today’s show:

  • 3 stories from my life when parenting was hard, and what that looked like
  • my current/ongoing challenges in parenting and how I deal with them
  • uncovering your triggers (learn more about this HERE)
  • using the 2 keys of self-regulation and self-compassion (it may sound simple, but it’s much harder to do… I get teary over here)


Coaching has changed my own life, and the lives of my clients. More connection, more healing, more harmony, and peace in our most important relationships. It increases confidence in any parenting challenges and helps you be the guide to teach your children the family values that are important to you- in clear ways. If you feel called to integrate this work in a deeper way and become a parenting expert, that’s what I’m here for.
