We have a parenting crisis of epic proportions.


Remember, our mindset quite literally changes our reality and a majority of parents have been conditioned to see parenthood and childhood through such a toxic lens.


We have been conditioned to believe that as parents, we are not the experts for our children.


We have been conditioned to believe that indoctrination is education.


We have been conditioned to believe that their poison is medicine.


We have been conditioned to believe that those who are aware are your enemy.


We have been conditioned to believe that our children should be convenient, fun and easy in order to enjoy Motherhood.


We have been conditioned to believe that what God intended as gifts are actually an inconvenience.


We have been conditioned to believe that every stage of childhood from the “terrible twos” to the “threenagers” are periods of pure misery instead of time for parents to value.

We have been conditioned to believe that the parents who talk POSITIVELY about their children and parenthood are somehow not being transparent or honest about their experiences.


We have been conditioned to believe that the “life ends when you have kids” mentality is normal, but it is so toxic.


We have been conditioned to believe that the “mommy wine culture” that has infiltrated mom circles is acceptable. (I love a good glass of wine or beer, but not because of them!)


It is not only sad, but what is it teaching our children? And what mindset are we reinforcing in our culture? From “the professionals” to Gen Z. And then we wonder why there is an entire generation of people who don’t value childhood innocence.


Having kids is hard. Raising them well is harder. I am not saying otherwise. And sharing honest motherhood in those seasons or frustrating moments is imperative. Some days we are just surviving and there is no shame in that, but when complaining about our children is all we do, what message is that sending?


We must safeguard our hearts and minds and help other parents do the same. Motherhood is sacrificial in all the best ways.
