Getting out of the SuperMom Trap
Mothers are expected to possess huge hearts, big shoulders, a
minimum of 3 hands, all the answers and the list goes on! What many
mothers forget is they are not born with super hero powers to handle
all of those things at once.
Mom = Stress. Itís a fact of life. Reducing stress is of the
utmost importance to everyone, but especially mothers - and
precisely why I put together my guide for moms on
Getting out of the SuperMom Trap.
You know stress can lead to depression, heart disease, and an
unhealthy mom. Did you also know your stress, if not handled
correctly, can have a negative impact on your children too?
The most important things in a motherís life, her children, are also
the most influential. Children are sponges and everything Mom does
they will, at some point in time in their lives, mimic. If children
see their mother constantly stressed out, they will be more inclined
to follow those patterns. What you do today can determine the kind
of life your child will lead tomorrow, including how you make it a
point to reduce stressful situations.
Mothers tend to overload themselves, which in turn overloads their
children. Adults move at a much faster pace and their bodies are
more adept to handle the speed of life. Children, on the other hand,
are not able to function this way, which can lead to developmental
and behavior problems in the long run if constantly pushed to keep
up with an adultís quicker pace.
Studies have shown a mother who is under excessive amounts of stress
will hand out harsher punishments than one who is not. Prolonged
stress can cause a mother to get to the point that she feels
overwhelmed and will not stop to think before handing down
discipline. This type of behavior teaches children it is ok to let
your mood control your life as a parent
Children need to feel a sense of security and know that their mom is
there to help them work through and understand the stressful times
in their lives. If children are not taught what stress is and why it
is a part of their lives, they will never learn how to reduce it,
therefore leading them down a path of unhappiness and unhealthy
choices. Give them the tools early about how to deal with stress and
more importantly, how to reduce the amount of stress that occurs in
There is no one who lives an entirely stress-free life. In fact, you
shouldnít want your children to have a life with absolutely no
stress. The day will come that a stressful situation occurs and they
will have no idea how to cope with it, which is cause for an
extremely negative outcome.
As a mother you must show your children that stress does not have to
control your life. Motherís have a tendency to try and do it all;
even when they know they are not capable. STOP! Make a point, each
day, to reduce your stress levels. Eliminating just one stressful
situation can make a world of difference in the way you feel and how
your children handle stress as adults.
