Podcast Episode 252: Mama’s Mental Gymnastics: Why Dads Need to Stop Sitting in the Stands with Paige Connell

Picture this: it’s the end of a long day, and you’re mentally exhausted. You’ve managed the schedules, remembered the doctor’s appointments, organized playdates, and somehow, the mental load feels like it’s crushing you.

Welcome to the world of motherhood, where the invisible weight of responsibilities often falls disproportionately on women. But it’s time for a change.

It’s time for dads to step up and share the mental load.

Today we’ve got a guest who is NOT all about maxing out when it comes to squatting your mental load as a mom but rather sharing that weight with your partner. Paige Connell is a working mom of 4 and content creator who brings awareness to the mental load of motherhood and advocates for equitable marriages.

You’ll laugh and (likely) agree wholeheartedly with our message that it’s time for change and that we are the ones who will bring it!

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

  • How to share your stressors with your partner when  you feel like you’re taking on too much of the mental load at home
  • Identifying what you and your partner want to prioritize as a parenting team
  • Ways to have meaningful conversations with your kids about sharing the work of tasks at home
  • The importance of letting go of the guilt that often accompanies working Moms
