Season 5 | Episode 302
19m | Apr 2, 2024

Parenting can be challenging, especially in a world that often values achievement and busyness over connection. Have you ever found yourself caught up in the trap of prioritizing tasks over building stronger bonds with your children? It's a common struggle. Today, I have a heartfelt conversation with Erica, a mother who shared her deeply personal experience of transitioning into motherhood through adoption. Her journey highlights the pressures of perfectionism and the impact of her own dysregulation, which many of us can relate to.

We talk about the transformative power of prioritizing connection over control and how it has positively impacted Erica's relationship with her daughter. From embracing vulnerability to dealing with guilt and shame, Erica shares her story with honesty and openness and shares the steps she took to create a nurturing and loving environment for her family. I hope her story resonates with you and helps you on your own parenting journey.
