What’s Behind Mommy Guilt?
written by Dr. Liz Matheis, posted on Psychology Today
Mommy guilt. Ugh. It comes with the territory of being a mom. But why? Why is it so ingrained in us, as women and as moms, to care, with every ounce of our soul, until our physical battery is below 0 percent and, yet, still feel guilty? How many moms sit with themselves at the end of each day and say, “I did a great job today! I did the best that I could and that was more than good enough!” I’m going to guess that the answer is not many, if any at all.
