    I love this! What great guidelines to break cycles and bring awareness to us and our children. I’ll be revisiting this post and working on the questions. What a shift when we recognize the “ broken social structures” and become part of the resistance. Thank you for your insights Beth!


    I often feel guilty about not doing anything besides being “home”, homeschooling (really unschooling, and feeling guilty about that because it’s actually awesome!) my 3 kids. They are my career. I honestly don’t know how people can do all kinds of other projects, work etc,etc and be able to be present and supportive of the kids processes and needs. It’s really not possible for me to do anything besides this. But saying that out loud often makes me wonder why I can’t do more like other moms. But then I see all the time how completely overwhelmed they are, and I know that what I am capable of is all I can do.

    “We’re only human, but we’re expected to behave as if we’re superhuman, all the while being treated as if we were subhuman.” Ooh, that is a powerful and true statement. Beth, I so value your ability to put clear, compassionate language to the swirling thoughts in my brain and tender pangs in my heart. I really appreciate the practical examples you walked through step-by-step here, too.

    Hi – this couldn’t come at a more
    timely moment for me. I have been struggling with huge guilt at working a lot and not being there for my son when he leaves for school and being unable todo pick ups over the past 5 weeks particularly. I also left him when he was younger for this and also went on a few social trips, I was on my own for a bit but he’s had an amazing step dad since he was 3 (he’s 10
    now) i’m forever feeling guilty for when I do things where he’s bored as i’ve put his needs second because i’ve had to work or chosen a social situation when desperate to see friends having had to work so much
    at the same time. He’s also incredibly self sufficient which is amazing but at the same time i feel that’s because i haven’t been around to much and he’s had no choice. His step dad does loads and they are very close. I hate this cycle of
    guilt and i hate feeling conflicted abit resentful at this constant choice situation
