TPJ 113: Selfish Parenting

Update: 2022-04-062


Too many parents are burning out – doing everything for everyone else in their families and feeling completely drained by the end of each day. It doesn’t have to be this way!

The truth is, what children need most are parents who feel good in their own skin, are well-cared for, and have great energy to tackle the day. The last thing they need are parents who feel resentful towards them for their own exhaustion.

In today’s episode, I’m going to share 8 tips on how to infuse a little more ‘selfishness’ into your life, prioritizing yourself in key areas so you can feel like a healthy human again!
