I would like to give a very warm welcome to Martina Pangrazzi (pictured above) as a guest blogger on MummyBear’sBlog.

Mums ~ value your own opinions!

I’m a mum of three – nine months old twins and a three year old and I am tired of hearing super cool sounding stories that give mothers the impression that they are the only ones that struggle to cope with having a child. We blame ourselves and we feel guilty when we’re not able to follow a picture of an amazing mother and we categorize our children as if there really was a manual for every child. We forget to value our own opinions and trust our own abilities and instincts.

Researchers, book writers and professionals are all trying to help; however, they can also confuse and mislead us. There is so much written about children and mothers, that it is hard for us to even imagine that we could think for ourselves, and follow our common sense.

Finding an attitude that maintains good health and well-being for both you and your children can sometimes be hard for even the strongest personalities.

As a mother, you are the most capable of finding out what makes your children happy, so believe in yourself as much as you believe in science and research or therapists and doctors!

Create your own rule book that will not only work for your children, but also for you.

Our children live in the present and whatever you’re giving them ‘NOW’ matters! Whatever you did wrong in the past, they do ‘NOT’ care about!

So you can have a fresh start every day!
