Ameé is not Mother of The Year. Nor is she is a parenting expert with degrees in child psychology. Ameé, in fact, failed at being a mother. <p>Her path to parenthood started with genuine intention and optimism. But unable to understand and manage her inner battles, her marriage ended and she left her husband of ten years as the custodial parent of their two small children. <p>For nearly seven years, Ameé was the "Weekend Mom" until circumstances changed and a wiser, willing Ameé was reunited with her kids and became a full-time single parent.

This week's episode features Dr. Jonice Webb.  She is the author of the best-selling book Running on Empty: Overcome your Childhood Emotional Neglect. And has just published a follow-up to the book Running on Empty No More: Transform Your Relationships With Your Partner, Your Parents and Your Children.Because like many people out there – when you use words like trauma and neglect – they feel too strong to describe what was, yes, a challenging childhood, and so it is easy to reject looking into any subject matter around the topic, especially if you are a person who feels that you have overcome adversities and challenges. But if you are a person who is still committing acts of self-sabotage such as bad romantic relationships, or have feelings of anxiety or depression frequently, and you have never been able to put a finger on any particular event or experience in your life that may have contributed to them, the concept of childhood emotional neglect just might be the key to unlocking the mystery. In this episode, Ameé and Dr. Webb discuss the following: What is Childhood Emotional Neglect? The common types of parents who are more apt to create this emotionally phobic or neglectful environment.  Now, how does someone feel like an adult if they did experience this lack of emotional connection from parents? What are the outcomes & behaviors typically seen?How does a person who has experienced childhood emotional neglect parent their own kids from an empty tank? Do you have to confront your own parents to heal from CEN? What's the first step to healing yourself from CEN?  Resources:Dr. Jonice Webb's WebsiteDr. Jonice Webb's Facebook PageDr. Jonice Webb's YouTube ChannelDr. Jonice Webb on InstagramDr. Jonice Webb on Twitter
