Podcast Episode 262: Why You Should Focus on Your BUT with Marielle Melling

Let’s talk about the elephant in the room: parenting is messy (full of “B.U.T.”s) and we’re all looking for parenting tips for building strong relationships.

But here’s the thing, dear moms: amidst the chaos and mayhem, there’s beauty to be found. In this heartfelt exploration, we’ll dive into the art of embracing imperfect parenting, finding joy in the journey, and nurturing strong, authentic relationships with our little ones, all while discovering your B.U.T. (bottom underlying truth).

Raise your hand if you’ve ever experienced a less-than-stellar parenting moment (raises hand enthusiastically).

Newsflash: perfection is overrated, and shame is so last season. Instead of beating yourself up over every spilled milk or missed bedtime, let’s celebrate the messiness of motherhood. Because guess what? Those imperfect moments? They’re the ones that make the best stories, the fondest memories, and the deepest connections.

In this podcast episode we’re talking with our longtime friend and collaborator, Marielle Melling. Marielle is the founder of Lovin’ Life with Littles, author of Peace Amidst the Mayhem, and her upcoming new book The BUT Book (releasing June 3, 2024). She helps parents simplify the hard stuff of motherhood, so they have more calm, stronger relationships with their kids, and more joy. On top of all of that, she’s also the busy mom to five kids ages 5-16!

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

  • To ditch the shame that comes with “imperfect” parenting moments and find joy in the mayhem that is motherhood (especially if you’ve got littles!)
  • How to take a step back and identify what is causing your less than favorable parenting behaviors and how to redirect yourself
  • The role of regulating your own emotions in parenting and confronting difficult issues early on with your kids 
  • The importance of knowing who you are and how you want to parent in order to build strong relationships with your kids
