Why Kids Drain You and What to Do About it
I think we have all had seasons in motherhood where we have felt utterly drained by parenting young children. Sometimes this season is only a day, and sometimes it’s years. It’s easy to feel like we’re supposed to and obligated to keep up all the time. In the times when we’re finally out of energy, some of us are left feeling defeated, frustrated, exhausted, or worse. A common question I get is, “Am I doing something wrong here? What can I do to make this more sustainable?” Sometimes it helps to step back and understand what’s happening first.
