Raising A Happier Mother (Hardback)Anna Mathur (author)
Imparting the wise message that mothers need to care for themselves before they can care effectively for their children, psychotherapist Mathur's timely guide provides invaluable advice and techniques for parents.
This isn't a parenting book. This isn't a guide to being a perfect parent (spoiler: they don't exist).This is a book about you.
We can only anchor, nurture, nourish and instill confidence in our children when we extend the same support to ourselves. After all, how can we effectively tend to our children's needs when our energy reserves are depleted? How can we lead by example and teach our children the importance of healthy self-esteem if we are struggling with these things ourselves? There are a thousand and one ways to parent, and only one way that's authentic for you.
Drawing on her work as a psychotherapist, alongside her own experiences as a mother, Anna shows that caring with our children begins with caring for ourselves, and it's time to replace exhaustion with empowerment. Far from being selfish, self-care is an essential quality of a happier mother good parent. The greatest gift you can give to to yourself and your children, is to give yourself permission to thrive.
