No Guilt Mom

No Guilt Mom

Feeling overwhelmed as a mom? Tired of doing everything for your kids and wish… just wish… someone would step in to help you out? Welcome to the No Guilt Mom parenting podcast hosted by author, teacher & parenting coach JoAnn Crohn, M.Ed and co-host parenting coach & educator, Brie Tucker. Every Tuesday, we give you practical advice for moms and positive parenting tips - all without the shame and guilt. We make it fun. We’re from a generation where our moms were supposed to be able to do it all. They went to work and yet were still expected to take care of the house and kids. Our moms put everything extra they had into us kids and we realize there is a better way. The way to give your kids your best is to give yourself the very best - without the mom guilt. How to master positive parenting without doing absolutely everything. That means focusing on what you like to do. If you don’t like playing LEGO’s on the floor with your kids, you don’t have, too. In my parents’ generation, moms gave up everything for their kids and I don’t want to do that. Kids who learn how to be self-sufficient are happier kids and have happier moms. Welcome to the No Guilt Mom podcast!

Positive body image is something so many of us strive for, not only for our own well being, but also as an example to our kids. But what we don’t talk about is the struggle to keep that mindset when we know our body isn’t the healthy version we want it to be. And what a toll the pressure of “having it all together” can have on us.

A survey done in 2021 shows that more than half of all students report they’re struggling to complete schoolwork and almost half find it hard to focus in class. Why is that? It’s very possible that the standards for teaching in the U.S. are a bit behind the times. Kids have different educational needs, and yet, for the most part, our educational system hasn’t changed much over the past 200 years! One thing is for sure- one size doe...

When our kids are feeling upset, many of us have been told that we need to teach our kids how to self-regulate on their own. But if we take a long hard look into neurodevelopment and how that affects our body and behaviors, and our kids' bodies and behaviors, you can see that kids can’t always regulate themselves. But how do we help them learn to self-regulate then? 

In this episode, we speak with Dr. Mona Delahook, a Child Psy...
