Hot Off the Press:
"Why Motherhood
is so Stressful

We know what it's SUPPOSED to be….
Now let's talk about what it's REALLY like.

  • Do you feel anxious, overwhelmed or unfulfilled?
  • Do you ever feel like you're not good enough?
  • Are you tired of being told how to raise your kids…and how you're supposed to feel about it?

As moms, we're constantly bombarded with messages dictating how we should raise our children—and how we're exxpected to feel about it. Whether it's a family member, friend or the media, everyone has a "formula" for every aspect of parenting.

But what if your experience doesn't mirror what everyone else describes? What if your feelings about motherhood are out of sync with the "norm"?
I feel like there's something wrong with me because I don't love being a mother the way other moms say they do. There's a lot about parenting I just don't like.
- Liz Z., mother of two, White Plains
In our status-obsessed society, it's easy to get caught up in a whirlwind of performance and achievement. We send our children to the "best" schools, enroll them in the "best" music/art/athletic programs and give them the "best" enrichment opportunities, so they'll be accepted by the "best" universities, get hired by the "best" companies and acquire the "best" things.

The result? Our kids are under constant pressure to perform, and we're stressed out by the demands of being the "perfect" mother. Buying into the notion that our children "come first," we drift further and further away from our core selves and lose sight of our wants and needs. Consequently, we feel self-doubt, experience self-blame and lead unfulfilling lives.

So, mothers: How can you live a life that's truly right for you?

The Authentic Mom puts you on the path to a more authentic, fulfilling life. Its mothers-only groups meet weekly in the greater Westchester, NY area, providing a safe place to explore the issues and pressures that make parenting so stressful. Limited to eight moms, these intimate groups offer the support of other mothers dealing with similar issues, along with the insights and guidance of an expert facilitator.
It's time we get together to speak openly and honestly about our true experiences of motherhood. Check out the schedule for The Authentic Mom self-exploration groups today. For more information, simply click here, or call 914-582-0801.
