Create your best parenting self

Every great parent becomes one by hitting rock bottom after a stormy and chaotic meltdown, right? I mean, that's typically the way that works really well for me.

Lately I have been riding the struggle bus as a parent. Finding myself lacking interest in waking up with the kids, sledging through the day, and not being the nicest mom around. It was going on for way too long and after a horrible parenting day, I finally had my meltdown.

I cried, told myself I was a bad mom, that I shouldn't be the one in charge of my children and deeply considered going back to work and having my husband stay home with them. I felt so guilty with the way I had been treating my own kids and was utterly drained and tapped out.
