Mommy guilt is one of the most common feelings mothers go through at some time. Moms will feel guilt for not being able to provide the very best for their children. This makes them see themselves as inferior at being a parent as other moms. Just remember that you are not alone. There are many other moms who go through the same thing. Here are some ways to help combat the mommy guilt before it takes over your self esteem.

Be nice to yourself Ė Every mom has experienced a moment, when raising their child, where something happened to them that made the mom feel like it was their fault. This is probably one of the most popular forms of mommy guilt ever. Your child falls and bruises their knee; your immediate reaction is to berate yourself as a mother.

ďIím a terrible mother,Ē is how it usually begins. Be kind to yourself, because you are a good mother and nobody needs to be a SuperMom - it's not good for anyone. Things will happen with your child and no matter how hard you try to provide for the safest environment possible, things will still happen. It doesnít mean youíre a bad mother.

Release the need to control everything - Remind yourself that you are not in control of everything that happens to your child. A part of growing up is learning from mistakes. The harder you try to keep them from everything bad out there, the harder they will ultimately fight you on it.

Even though you are an involved parent and see after your child, there is no way you can prevent some things from happening. Just spend that energy on being there for your child to help them through life and not try so hard to control it.

Trust yourself - You are the best person for the tough job called ĎMommyí to your child. Donít second-guess yourself. When your intuition says that your child shouldnít be doing something; then learn to trust it and stand firm. Donít give in just because you donít want them mad at you. Your internal leads are there for a reason.

Donít cave in to guilt trips - Kids like to take their parents down guilt trip lane. We all want our children to have and do whatever they want, but itís not always the safest or best thing for them. When you make a decision, stick to your guns.

Donít allow others to influence your parental decisions - Itís typical for other parents to offer unwarranted advice. While itís nice to receive otherís opinions on something about your child, you are ultimately the one who will need to make the decision. If you are faced with this kind of circumstance; clearly tell them that you appreciate their opinion and will keep it in mind, but donít let them influence you too much on your decisions.

You know your child, better than anyone, so you are the one that will know whatís best for them. All parents as well as kids make mistakes, so itís important not to let yourself doubt your mothering abilities. Youíre raising your kids the best you can, so itís time to start believing in yourself.
