Podcast Episode 170: Do You Parent Through Fear?

This week on the podcast, JoAnn & Brie tackle the thing many of us do, but aren’t even aware of – allowing fear and anxiety to take the wheel when parenting. It’s easy to shrug this off as a case of helicopter parenting, but there is so much more to it. This “parenting through fear” is driven by our deepest dread that something awful will happen if we leave our kids to their own devices and they make a wrong choice.

Fear is overwhelming. Not only does it impact moms’ wellness, but in preventing kids from having any distance, autonomy, or the chance to make mistakes and get hurt, our kids are taking on this anxiety. They’re being taught the world is a scary place that they’re unable to navigate on their own. You think you’re doing your best but you could be setting them up for future resentment and failure to launch.

You love your kids and want them to thrive. That’s why you’re here! So listen in to learn the warning signs that indicate fear is your driver, and 3 easy ways to nip this behavior in the bud and start positive parenting with confidence!

In this episode of the No Guilt Mom podcast you’ll learn:

  • How to tell if you are letting your anxiety and fear control your parenting.
  • What are the common signs that you are parenting through fear.
  • 3 things that you can do to stop parenting through fear.
