A producer recently asked me before a guest segment, "What one piece of advice would you give moms out there who are in the thick of it?"
My response was simple - find one thing to be really good at.
Don't try to do it all. Be the best at making pancakes. Be the best at bike rides, or bedtime stories or homework patience. But don't try to be the best at everything and burn yourself out. Because you will burn out.
As we come to a close on National Mental Health Awareness Month this message is so important for anyone on the parenting journey to remember. Your children don't need Supermom, they need a mom who is enjoying the experience of raising them.
