It’s easy to put your worth in your children’s failures and successes. In this week’s episode, Kathi and guest, Erin MacPherson, author of the Christian Mama’s Guide series, discuss being a part of the Bad Moms Club. While most moms are striving to be the best mom she can be, she is usually riddled with doubt, guilt and worry. If this sounds like you, take heart, you aren’t alone.
Kathi and Erin discuss ways to get through this journey of motherhood from birth through young adulthood. Some of the highlights include:
- “Don’t judge your parenting on one bad day!”- One bad day doesn’t undo all that parenting that you’ve poured into your kid/s.
- “Find your people that will still be a fan of your kid even when he/she doesn’t make the best decision.”- When our child has royally messed up, there is something about another adult who you admire seeing something besides “future adult delinquent” in your child that will give you hope.
- “Don’t put your faith in the sheep, put it in the Shepherd.”- We base the outcome of our lives on the actions of our children. Wrong. Our hope is only in God.
