S01E06 How to escape the Hot Mess Train Wreck

 

We hear a lot about the "Hot Mess" parenting style, and while it comes from good intentions, is it really helping us at the end of the day?

I've been a Hot Mess, and I'm so grateful that this model was an option, rather than just failing at being a "good mom." After awhile though, being the Hot Mess didn't help me anymore - it just made me feel disempowered. In this episode, I share my story about how I got out of being a Hot Mess parent, and took back the agency in my own life. Spoiler alert: it's 100% OK to be on the Hot Mess Train - but we don't have to be on it FOREVER if that's not what we want. I'm choosing instead to get on the train of agency, empowerment, and showing my kids that adulting actually doesn't have to be all that messy all the time.
