Feb 8 2022 • 9 mins

As I often say, “Misplaced expectation is the mother of all disappointment.” And when you’re the mother with the misguided expectation, your children pay the price. As a survivor of childhood trauma you likely paid it too.
I know what it’s like to be conditioned to believe I had to meet “the standard” in order to feel love and accepted. I've also seen the look in my kids’ eyes when I’ve given them the same impression.
It’s gut wrenching and it doesn’t have to be your normal. In this episode we’ll talk about how to handle motherhood when the message in childhood was the adults in charge are hard to please.
