We’ve all heard it a million times before…”Secure your own mask before assisting others”, but that’s easy to do when you are strapped in and at cruising altitude and YOU don’t have control of the proverbial wheel; but what does that look like in real life? How do manage to “secure your own mask” when you have a million deliverables, a husband, and a child that won’t let you so much as use the bathroom unaccompanied?
The older we get, the more we realize that everything we do (or don’t do for that matter) is connected. How we treat ourselves manifests in our parenting. On this week’s episode, we chop it up with mental health professional and life coach, La Shell Wooten, as she drops some major knowledge and draws some very interesting parallels between mom/parent self-care and bully behavior in children. We discuss how we teach bullying by using physical aggression to exert control over our children. She puts it plainly, Motherhood is the God’s way of calling us to our higher selves and self care is the way to preserve ourselves and our families well being in the process. Trust us, you have to listen!
