I love it when a client wants to share her insight from a coaching session. One of my clients recently identified the pitfalls of trying to be a Super Mom and decided to be a Real Mom instead.
She defined a Real Mom this way:
- Acknowledges she needs help
- Asks for what she needs
- Is resourceful
- Focuses on what is important to her kids
- Makes them part of the solution
- Lets go of being needed
It was great to see my client redefine her priorities by getting out of her own way and getting clear about her ultimate goal: teaching her children how to be whole and healthy.
This works for dads too!
