Failing Motherhood
Realistic Expectations with Amanda Gurman
Show Notes

Expectations are premeditated resentments; future disappointments planned out in advance.

How often are our expectations of our kids or ourselves - too high?

Amanda Gurman of the Honest as a Mother podcast shares her journey to discovering how to ease up and lower the expectations she'd been handed.

Through trial and error, she's come to terms with the kind of mom she is - and has embraced it.

She shares practical ways she's allowing for her own needs to be met and we discuss how to avoid raising entitled kids.  We also highlight ways the pandemic has challenged this and what to do about it.

I hope you let relief wash over you as you receive a signed permission slip from both of us to lower your expectations of yourself and just be YOU.
