How can we better support each other through parenthood?
Today’s guest, Lisa Sugarman who is the author of Untying Parent Anxiety is here to help us get to the bottom of this question. Through her writing, Lisa reminds us that as parents, we often come up against similar hurdles when raising our children, but we seldom speak up about them to other parents whom are friends. However by not being open about our experience, we can sometimes isolate ourselves further, leaving many of us feeling that we are the only ones struggling. It’s for this reason that Lisa is such a big advocate for building supportive parenthood communities – spaces in-person or online that allow parents everywhere to feel seen, heard and understood.
On today’s episode, Lisa speaks about her own motherhood journey, the personal pressures she’s come up against as a parent and why she believes that finding a community during parenthood is one of the best things you can do for yourself.
