Episode 36: Self-Compassion & Giving Yourself a Break with Carla Naumburg, PhD

Authentic Living, Mindful Parenting, Self-Care, Women’s Empowerment

In today’s episode, Shannon and Ashley are bringing back one of their favorite past guests, Carla Naumburg, PhD. Carla is a clinical social worker, mother and author of the new book, You Are Not a Sh*tty Parent: How to Practice Self-Compassion and Give Yourself a Break.

Mamas give so much and we also need to tend to our own needs, so we can feel grounded, connected and supported in the midst of our chaotic, busy lives.

In this episode, we talk with Carla about why we suffer from Sh*tty Parent Syndrome, the difference between self-improvement and self-care, setting healthy boundaries and how to treat ourselves and our children with greater compassion.

This episode is authentic, funny and powerful.
