Earlier this year, I launched “Profession Mother: A-mom-to-moms rubric” or your question and answer, one mother to another column on motherhood, children and everything in-between. What I failed to do, however, is commit on how often I will write on all issues mothers face and how you, my readers, can ask your questions on the one and only Profession Mother.
So, here it is: because I am a mother myself (my baby girl just turned one in November), a counseling private practice owner (Inside Family Counseling, LLC), a blogger, an author of Mental Health Digest electronic magazine, a wife and a therapist, I cannot commit to posting twice a week or even once every week. So let me start with twice a month, i.e. once every other week, and see how it goes. In order to do that, though, I need your help!
I need to hear your questions, comments, concerns. So here is my appeal to YOU MOMS, regardless of whether you are a mom-to-be, a new mom, a working mom, a stay-at-home mom, a single mom, a step-mom, an adoptive mom or a grand-mom, remember to make room in your busy week to celebrate yourself and your most important job, that of raising human beings as functional and productive members of our society. To do so, I ask you to read my blog posts and please, tell me, were they helpful? Did they inspire you to do something nice for you or your family ? What questions did they raise for you? What did they make you think of?
This is the best way for me to be there for you and your family, and to answer your most pressing questions about motherhood, child rearing and everything in-between. Let’s create a space together, where you feel heard, noticed, appreciated and celebrated! Because, remember, WHEN MOM IS HAPPY, EVERYONE IS HAPPY!
So, to get you started, here is my very first question for you:
What makes you feel proud to be a mother? For me right now, it’s my daughter’s very first Bulgarian word, “ta-to-o” (“tatko”), which means “daddy.”
Looking forward to your responses!
