My back to school resolution: To stop trying to facilitate everything for my kids

Last school year, I worked really, really hard to facilitate everything for my kids, in an effort to compensate for all the pandemic took from them. But it turned out all this facilitating was for nought-it didn’t help my kids, and actually compromised my own ability to take care of myself. As a specialist on maternal mental health, I was clearly not practicing what I was preaching.

So this school year, I’ve decided to renounce my role as facilitator. I wrote about my fruitless facilitating efforts for Moms Don’t Have Time to Write.

Hope your transition back to school goes as easily and smoothly as possible!
