Mom Guilt


Hi Brooke. I have clients and prospective clients coming for book coaching who have young children. I’m hearing many of them express feeling mom-guilt for “taking time away from their children” to write. They note their kids will only be little once, and want to play with mom for a short number of years. Some also worry about setting a bad example for their kids in terms of “too much screen time.” I know these feelings stem from the thoughts they are thinking about what a “good mom” does. And I know to direct them to do models on those thoughts.

I was wondering if there is anything you teach in terms of mom-guilt? Or in terms of constraining your focus while kids are young? Or if there is anything you might say to them beyond guiding them to do models on it? Thanks!
