For Moms

Being a mom isn’t always easy. Between managing the day-to-day responsibilities of caring for children, the sleepless nights, and all of life’s other challenges, most moms wonder if they’re doing a ‘good job’.

If you have had hurtful experiences in your past - either as a child or teenager, or more recently as an adult - these experiences can add unique challenges to parenting young children.

Mothers in Mind covers a range of topics to help moms learn how to manage stress, increase self-esteem and respond to their children in a sensitive, caring manner. Some of these topics are explored in this For Moms section, which provides parenting information specifically for moms who have young children and have had experiences of violence and trauma in their lives.
