Wholehearted Parenting – DO YOU REALIZE HOW AWESOME YOU ARE?

I’m thrilled that you’ve joined our conversation today! Although some Dads may relate to this show, we’re really going to be talking about Moms. Specifically how critical Moms can be of themselves. I’m in the process of writing a book and am devoting a full chapter to this topic.

I believe women are more critical of themselves than men are, and mothers are particularly hard on themselves, both as women and Moms. So I decided that it was time to have this conversation, to bring it out into the open, and begin talking about specific ways then we, as Moms, can be kinder and gentler to ourselves.

I’ve invited my guest, Kathryn Thompson, to join my conversation. Kathryn is a writer who lives outside Seattle with her computer genius husband and three kids. She is passionate about collecting Drops of Awesome, the concept that you can change the world one tiny positive choice at a time, and that you need to recognize and celebrate those small successes.

Kathryn’s has been blogging professionally since 2005. She was a founding blogger at Parenting.com and her blog has been featured everywhere from the Seattle Times to the Today Show. Kathryn is the author of “Drops of Awesome”, a guided journal to help you discover your inner Awesome, based her viral blog post of the same name.

Join us and begin creating your own “Drops of Awesome”!
