Parenting Yourself First

Parenting can be one of the most challenging journeys we will ever take. It’s a 24-7 type of commitment for the rest of our lives and a journey that can bring up all sorts of emotions, especially if we have unresolved stuff from our own childhood. Parenting can be also very rewarding and an opportunity to grow and heal the wounds from our experiences growing up and in our relationship with our parents and ourselves. It can expand our comfort zone and allow us to become the adult that our children need us to be while taking care of our inner child. Like many parents, I tend to become so caught up in my own agenda and the emotions that arise from being a woman trying to show up for everything:
