    Parenting & Co-Parenting with a Narcissist

    Have you ever had an encounter with a narcissist, but you were unaware they were such until you got to know them? Did you already have children with that person before realizing they were a narcissist because they unleashed their charm upon you, and you were instantly sucked in? Well, if those questions became relatable to your situation, I have something to share with you.

    "Because I Said So!"

    "Because I Said So!"

    Everyone has heard it, most of us have said it, “Because I said so” has been a frustrating cop-out parents have used as a blanket excuse for anything they didn’t feel like justifying at the time.

    STEPMOM

    STEPMOM

    I remember it like it was yesterday, my mother telling me "Do not marry a man with a whole bunch of kids". I knew what she was trying to say, I had watched her over the years having to deal with so much. My Dad had 10 kids that called my Mom their Stepmother. It seemed like every month we had a new edition to the household. They would come and go like there was a revolving door and with opened arms she would accept them, she loved them all.

    Free to Be

    Free to Be

    Does anyone remember the iconic children's album and illustrated book from the 1972 called Free To Be... You and Me? While I don't remember this "Top 100 Albums of All Time" work, published when I was 6 years old, I know that the phrase "Free To Be" has resonated through my being for as long as I can remember. This work by Marlo Thomas and several of her friends tells ALL children that they can be whomever and whatever they can be. Here we are, 48 years later, still working on this same message.

    Being a first time mum with mental health

    Being a first time mum with mental health

    Being a First Time Mum and Mental health STOP. This is a safe place for you to stop for a minute and read. The words mental health are scary to admit and no one really likes to say they struggle with this but so many people do and I think it's a subject we all need to talk about more in a positive not a negative way.

    Momming ain't easy

    Momming ain't easy

    *TW: talk of pregnancy, motherhood* "They don't come with a manual". I mean, at this point, after literally thousands and thousands of years of people growing and raising babies, you think we might have some sort of easy-to-follow plan on how not to screw up a human child, no? Or at the very least how not to lose your mind while trying not to screw up said child? I think we could maybe all sit down and try to do that?

    Family

    Peaceful Warriors~breaking the cycle Do you remember your childhood? What memories haunt you, which comfort you? We were all so strong and confident, so ready to take on the world, we had power in our imagination, and we had nothing but strength in our hands and hearts. Our dreams were everything. Children are innocent, gloriously innocent, they still believe in the world around us, don’t take that from your children, let them play, let them get dirty, let them fall, then pick them up,and tell them to try again, how you speak to them holds a huge impact on their mental and emotional states. If a child is taught they are useless, dumb, inadequete that is what they believe, and that is who they become, don’t be like your parents, don’t drown them in your own issues, don’t talk about your bills, and your mortgage and how much you hate your job, the word hate breeds hate, it teaches them to be angry. Be better than our parents, teach them good things, teach them that there is no limit to what they can become or achieve. Show them mercy, and they will show others mercy. Don’t strike them, it takes away their trust, and you are their heroes. Don’t take that from them. Fathers are honest, strong, faithful and protective, mothers are loving, strong and kind they are teachers. Teach them that no matter what the truth is always better than being right.
