Do you feel like it’s your job to keep everything together for everyone – kids, husband, house, and career?
Is everyone happy and carefree while you’re behind the scenes making it happen?
Do you think that everything should appear to be rolling along perfectly even when you feel like you’re coming apart at the seams?
Multitasking is your best friend yet, when you really allow yourself to take a moment and reflect on how far you have overextended yourself, you realize that something’s gotta give and seriously, that something may be you. What happened to the days when you could take a long hot bath and really relax?
This is Super Mom Syndrome. Our culture accepts, encourages, and even expects Super Moms. As a Super Mom you spend time hiding your struggles and suffer in silence convinced you are the only mom with this problem.
You worry about the kids: Are their grades good enough? Why do they refuse to do all of their homework each night? Are they really on media as much as you suspect and are afraid to admit? What will become of your family if they don’t turn out perfect?
You feel overwhelmed with the responsibility and that if you can just get it right, get your kids to listen to reason, or lose five more pounds everything will be perfect.
No one person is able to do or be everything for everyone. You know deep in your heart that if you continue on this track you are setting yourself up for burn out, yelling at the kids, illness, arguing with your husband too much or divorce.
The truth is change is possible. I can help you create the change you want. We can take those struggles you face each day and find better ways to help yourself as you help your family. We can identify the stumbling blocks to your progress and create new strategies for those kids, for those five extra pounds, for the overwhelming stress of each day and find new and more manageable ways to not just tread water and survive, but to thrive in your life.
