Mommy Matters Blog Introduction

Being a mom is hard work. We love our kids unconditionally but that doesn’t mean that we don’t get stressed or overwhelmed from time to time (or many times).

This blog will be a source for all things related to motherhood. I will present ideas, tips, and strategies for how to manage our lives as moms.

I am a clincial social worker who provides therapy to children, adults, and families. I am also a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA). My BCBA training has allowed me to learn about how people function, how they learn, how they create and change habits, and much more. I am also an experienced freelance writer specializing in the topics of parenting, family, and personal health and wellness.

And the most important of all of my roles, I am a mother of three wonderful kids (at the time of this writing, my daughters are 2 years old and 7 years old and my son is 9 years old).

This blog is titled “Mommy Matters” because I want to help mothers live the best lives they can and help moms with the daily struggles they might encounter as well as build up the positive experiences in our lives as we do the best we can at parenting our kids.

I chose the word “matters” because YOU matter. Being a mom is such an important role. What you do matters, who you are matters, and you matter. Also, matters refers to the topic being considered, in this case, moms.

This blog will focus on any of the following topics:

  • Increasing our happiness as moms
  • Creating more calm in our lives
  • Managing our many responsibilities
  • Helping our kids
  • Creating daily routines
  • Building healthy habits
  • Self-care
  • Managing stress
  • Dealing with anxiety and depression
  • Setting and working towards goals, realistically
  • Relationship issues
  • Any other issues related to being a mom

Please feel free to let me know if you would like to see any particular topic addressed in this blog…The purpose of this blog is to help moms in any way that I can.
