I started this website so that you can find out more about my new book, Big Picture Parents: Ancient Wisdom for Modern Life.
But there are few reasons why I am a very reluctant blogger:
1. I am not a parenting guru
I am a normal, human parent. I am often overwhelmed with fear, guilt, and confusion about my role. To my shame, I regularly yell at my kids and snap at my husband. I feel like my life – my house, my marriage, my kids, my heart – is too messy for social media.
But one of my key messages to modern parents is that we need to accept our human limitations – we are not perfect and we are not ultimately in control. All we can ever hope to be is “good enough”. In my book, I show how we can find freedom from the guilt and fear we experience as humans and as parents.
