How to Deal With Mommy Guilt


Last week I posted on how mommies spend more time with their children than mothers did in 1965. Unfortunately, we still have "Mommy Guilt."

That's where Devra and Aviva from Parentopia.net come in. These fantastic ladies (who have more than 450,00 parenting hours to their credit) have put together a website, blog, and book (Mommy Guilt: Learn To Worry Less, Focus on What Matters Most and Raise Happier Kids), to help moms, dads, and even grandparents stop worrying and just enjoy their time parenting.

There are 7 principles identified in Mommy Guilt as keys to guilt-free motherhood. Here are just a couple to get you started:
  • Parenting is not a competitive sport
  • Laugh alot, especially with your children

Have feelings of guilt but don't know who to talk to about it? The parentopia blog allows you to actively express your feelings and ask questions that either Devra or Aviva will respond to.

In addition, on the Parentopia website you can find excerpts from their award-winning book and external resources that can make parenting easier.

So stop feeling guilty and start enjoying parenthood to its fullest!
