Finding Your Tribe: Shouldn’t I just Know How to Parent?


Did you ever think you'd need help in your parenting?

Elle and Abigail figured they might need help initially, but never years and years into their parenting. This week they discuss the moment they knew they needed help, how they reached out, and the differences they saw when they found their parenting “tribe.”

Elle talks up the value of support in a shared community, and Abigail champions finding a mentor. There should be no embarrassment or shame in asking for help, but yet it's something both hosts admit is hard to do.

Join us this week to talk about the moments when parenting feels hard, and how to find the support you need.
