The Genuine Mom Blog

Let’s talk about parenting. There’s millions of parenting experts, and tons of people tooting their own perfection horn on social media. It can become so overwhelming as a mom, to find your rhythm and your voice.

My guess is that you’ve become overwhelmed by trying to appear like you have it altogether more than once before. And, how could you not? There’s these unbelievably high standards being set by social media influencers, more and more! So, I want to let you in on a little secret: Those people with the beautiful social media feeds, and the hilarious tik toks. Those people that appear to have it altogether – don’t.

You don’t need to compare yourself to them, because their posts just create an illusion that they’ve got it altogether, when in reality – none of us do! We all struggle, we all make mistakes as parents, we all have bad days, we all (sometimes) hide ourselves away in the closet and stuff our faces with chocolate (or ice cream, I prefer ice cream). Sometimes we yell at our kids, and sometimes we practice peaceful parenting.

No one is perfect, so don’t stress when you have those days that you feel like you just can’t measure up. Because what you’re trying to measure up to – isn’t real. It’s a measuring cup with a hole in the bottom. You can’t see it, but giiiiirllll let me tell you, it’s not gonna fill up!

So, relax! You’re doing SUCH a great job at this mama gig! I can’t wait to dive deeper into more amazing topics with you! I love all the mamas! And I’m here for you! So, take a deep breath, you’re in the right place!
