Happy Mothers Day


As a mother to four children, I totally understand the stresses that Motherhood can bring! If only you were a fly on the wall in my house this morning as I battled to get the kids to school on time while also trying to organize myself and clean up the house and be ready to leave for work!

I believe that as Mothers we all share a similar journey, a journey of trying to raise children who are happy, confident, resilient, healthy, active, capable (and the list goes on and on). There are so many expectations that society and more importantly we put on ourselves as Mothers. How can we not expect to feel overwhelmed, overworked, guilty and out of control on a daily basis!

Here are some tips that I have learnt and are still learning (and yes at times the hard way) to help me to deal with everyday stresses:

1. Stay true to yourself and what you believe, you know your children better than anyone else and therefore you know what is best for them. It is ok to say no if you are not comfortable with a situation.

2. Let go of all that negative self-talk and negative talk in your life about your Mothering skills. Believe in what you know and do, as no one will love and honor your children more unconditionally. Trust in your “Mothering Instincts”.

3. A huge one for me is to let go of the guilt that is so ingrained in been a Mother, we feel guilty about everything from not been there for a performance or sporting event, to seeing your child hurting and not been able to help them, to leaving them in care or with a sitter whilst you go off to work and so on. There is so much guilt associated with all of these things. Guilt that we are not being the best Mother or making the best choices for our children! I believe that a happy Mum will lead to happy children – if you are stressed out then your children will also be stressed out. Make an effort today to take breath and let go of some of that guilt – enjoy your children and let go.

Next time you have that opportunity to have break or do something for you, then jump at it with two hands and enjoy it, because it will make you feel calmer and more relaxed which will then feed down to your children.

Now make an effort to something today to relax and enjoy your children and remember that you are the Best Mum for your Children!

I would like to wish you all a Happy Mother’s Day and I hope you are able to enjoy it with your loved ones.

Until my next blog, enjoy your children.
