Episode 46: Reframing Parenting and Showing Ourselves Empathy with Dr. Mona Amin

Brief summary of show:

Motherhood is by far the most difficult job in the world, would you agree?

Sometimes it feels like just when I have one thing figured out, another problem hits, or maybe a health issue arises. I know you know what I’m talking about.

But what happens when we let our own boundaries go? Or maybe when we don’t heal the things that have caused us trauma?

Joining me to talk about this is Dr. Mona Amin, a Board Certified General Pediatrician, Parenting expert, and mother.

She has been featured on, Romper, CondeNast Traveler, VeryWell Family, NBC News, and was named one of Insider’s Top Pediatricians to follow on social media for 2020.

She works in private practice and her passions include: early childhood development, focusing on the impact of healthy sleep, a healthy relationship with food, and healthy coping skills in the first five years of a child's life.
