In her funny, honest, and uplifting debut, Ditch the Mommy Guilt: A Blueprint for the Modern Mommy, psychiatrist Dr. Leesha Ellis-Cox dispels the myth of the “perfect parent” and guides the path to becoming an effective and happy mom—one who overcomes her flaws and the inevitable mistakes made during parenthood through positivity; self-love; gratitude; support; and, most of all, a guilt-free conscience that neither compares nor judges.
The “Ditch the Mommy Guilt” Course
Transformation is a continual process. To shift from stuck to unstoppable and from guilt-ridden to guiltless, moms must first take an inventory. We must examine sources of our mommy guilt, identify our true parenting style and parenting beliefs—no matter how unsettling— and get real about our hang-ups. Only then can we begin our transformation.
During this eight-week-course, we embark upon this journey to guilt-free parenting together. We breakdown mindset, learn developmental ages and stages that will inform and improve our parenting techniques, and discover how to forgive ourselves and our missteps. In the end, we come to a place of acceptance. No longer will we question every single parenting decision, but we will build our mommy tribe and foster our own resilience through self-love, enduring grace, and unapologetic motherhood.
The 31-Day Devotional
God’s word provides the blueprint for life, marriage, and parenting. To experience the full and abundant life that God has designed for us, we must spend time in His word daily. In an era of social media, instantaneous gratification, bullying and school shootings, and sexual immorality, parenting seems harder than ever and our children face even greater challenges. Moms, restore your spirit with this 31-day devotional filled with scriptures that remind us our children are a blessing from our heavenly Father. We can turn to Him and rest in His love, truth, and grace so that we are equipped to carry out all that he has for our children and our families.
It’s not just a fun catchphrase, it’s a movement. Mommies, wear the shirt and ditch the guilt!
