So many mothers feel they have to do everything “perfect” as a mom. Where does this come from? Society? Our childhood? Our work-culture? In this episode, I welcome Michelle Kenney who is a former teacher and high school counselor, mother, and a recovering perfectionist and control freak to talk all about how motherhood perfectionism is ruining motherhood and how to combat it.

We discuss:

  • Why we get caught up in trying to be a “perfect” parent
  • How to approach motherhood instead
  • How to look at motherhood with a growth-mindset
