This year, I plan to listen to 52 podcast episodes, read 12 books and maintain 1 blog. I plan to share all this amazing wisdom for our tender moments here. Enjoy!!
Podcast: Good Inside with Dr. Becky
Episode #5: A Plate of Shame
Good Inside with Dr. Becky is a podcast for parents, particularly Moms. Although the episodes are short, most are about a half an hour, they pack a big punch when it comes to practical strategies that can be utilized immediately. You may want to scroll through Dr. Becky’s many episodes, you’ll find wisdom for many tender parenting moments, whether it’s tackling bedtime, potty training, managing tantrums, mom rage, generational trauma or dealing with incredibly painful emotions such as guilt or shame. In this episode, the topic is shame and it’s a beautiful conversation I believe many will relate to.
It opens with a woman sharing her story of a recent outing with her family in which her kids were struggling, and a stranger offered a ‘plate of shame.’ What can we do when we are stuck in a shame spiral, when we feel we are failing our kids and causing others to be ashamed of us and our parenting? These are such tender moments.
I deeply appreciate Dr. Becky’s gentle and warm nature, the questions she asks and the wisdom she imparts. If you resonate with this conversation, share it with another parent and be sure to check out additional episodes from Dr. Becky.
