Avoid Supermom Syndrome and Just Be a Mom
seems to be something that needs to be done and there
is always going to be someone who can do more.
Many times, as a mom, you are going to struggle with
the idea that you aren't doing enough, and that there
is much more you could be doing, if only you had the
time. Supermoms seem to be everywhere. They can
do it all – work and cook and take care of their
children, and they never seem to need or want
anything at all. However, these people aren't really
real, and what they are doing might not be the best way to go. The best way for you to be a mom is to simply be a mom. Many times, you will find that being a mom isn't near as hard as you might think that it would be.
The first thing that you have to remember as you are dealing with the supermom
syndrome is that you are going to run into a lot of barriers. You want to be sure that
you are able to take care of your children, first and foremost, and trying to do too
much at once is often a good way for it to be ruined. Therefore, you want to focus
on the family first and foremost.
What a lot of moms don't realize is that the most important part of being a good mom
is not making sure that they get home baked cookies, get to their soccer games on time,
and also get everything in the world that they could possibly want. It often seems that
when someone tries to be a super parent, they lose site of what it really means to be a
parent. Kids aren't going to lose faith in a parent if that parent burns the dinner or misses
a soccer game. Kids are going to lose fait in a parent if a parent isn't telling them the truth,
isn't teaching them the ways of the world, or isn't listening to what they say.
Therefore, as a mom, the most important thing that you can do is always going to be to
make sure that you are there for your kids. Just being there is something that a lot of
moms excel at, and it is something that you want to try to do as well as you can. You
want to be sure that you are able to get as much out of your children as you can, but also
that they can get as much out of you as possible. This doesn’t mean that you have to do
everything and be the world's best mom. It means that you have to be the best mom you
can be – which means that you are there to guide your children through their lives.
Lots of moms lose site of the fact that their number one job should always be to guide
their children through their lives. Often, it seems that moms are trying so hard to show
other moms that they can do everything that they forget what they are supposed to be
doing. Stop trying to do everything that you can do. Often, the one thing that your child
is going to need from you is simply your time and your ear so that they can know you are
listening. Forget trying to be perfect in all of those other ways. See if you can simply be
there for your children and make sure that they know it. This is the best way that you can
be a mom.
