The Unforgiving Role of Motherhood

Date: Wednesday, November 24th, 2021
Time: 12:00 – 1:00 pm
Location: The webinar link will be shared with you via email prior to the session start time.

Being a mom is, in a word, HARD! Of course, there is so much joy in the relationship you have with your children. And, trying to keep our kids emotionally stable and able to navigate life as they grow, all while making sure the basics of life are provided can make motherhood an extremely exhausting role. The amount of information moms carry can lead to overwhelm, frustration and loneliness – especially if you consider yourself the primary parent.

What if you could get a handle on the way you parent, and enlist help along the way?

Come join us for this lunch hour webinar where you will learn 1) about the typically gendered roles in parenting and the impact it has now and in the future, 2) what successful co-parenting can look like, and 3) the ways to mitigate the challenge in being the mother you want to be. You will walk away with a list of methods that you can implement and help your mental, physical and emotional well being right away.
