Oct 19 2022 • 40 mins

Parenting burnout is real. But how can we actually face that reality (instead of suffering silently with it), accept that reality (instead of stuffing it down or feeling guilt and shame about it), and do something productive out of it?

In this episode, we are going to get into these hard questions and discuss the work/life balance of parenthood. Is it a real thing and if so how do I find some?
