Modern life has left many mums feelings overwhelmed, stressed and feeling down as a result of trying to ‘do it all’. The role of ‘mother’ has significantly changed over the past 70 years. The role is no longer clearly defined. Whilst the modern era allows women to have the same rights as men), many women have had to adopt both the traditional male and female household and career roles - so life has in fact become harder for many career women - especially mums.
Many mums find themselves feeling stressed, tired, fed-up and riddled with guilt. The helpformums website has been designed to help mums reduce anxiety/fear and depression which is often the by-products of all the pressure many mums experience in modern life. The Perfect Mum book deals specifically with all the issues many mums talk about amongst themselves, but often feel embarrassed to admit in open forums. These issues include:
How do I keep the intimacy in my relationship?
How do I meet a new partner as a single mum?
How do I stay fit and healthy as a mum?
How do I advance my career and still feel like I’m being a good mum?
How do I feel confident as a mum when everyone else seems to be coping so much better?
How do I make new friends as a mum?
How do I keep my identity in my new role as a mum?
How do I manage my finances with reduced work in motherhood?
The philosophy behind help for mums is to assist mums - just like you - to first understand that most mums feel the same way. Then to assist you to find the support and tools you need to:
Create closer friendships
Be successful financially
Attract and maintain a compatible partner
Feel healthy and energetic
Feel good about the extremely important role you’re playing in your child/ren’s lives
