44: Setting Boundaries with Loved Ones
Play • 57 min

"Daring to set boundaries is about having the courage to love ourselves, even when we risk disappointing others." -Brene Brown 

Why is it so hard to set boundaries with our relatives? Why is it important to set these boundaries? 

On today's episode I welcome Jenny Mehrer. She is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (On Instagram as @jennywestmehrerlmft) who joins me to talk about boundary setting with our loved ones. 

We discuss:

  • Why we have difficulty setting boundaries with loved ones
  • Why lack of boundary setting can cause friction in families
  • Why lack of boundary setting can cause behavioral issues in children 
  • First steps in creating boundaries
  • How we can communicate to our parents who differ in various parenting philosophies 
  • How to create boundaries during the holidays and surrounding COVID precautions

Tune in for this very important episode. Follow @jennywestmehrerlmft and @pedsdoctalk to continue the conversation!

Okay, We Annoy Ourselves Also
This podcast is always here to support moms in their righteous anger at all the completely infuriating and totally trivial things that people all over the world are constantly doing to annoy us. Usually someone related to us. But this week, we're looking inward– because sometimes we totally annoy ourselves also. In this episode we come clean about the things we do that are so irksome that we even annoy OURSELVES. (And then keep doing them anyway.) We also explore some of the confessions of self-annoyance from some of our listeners, like Alexa, who rarely refills the Brita pitcher and so then has to stand there getting old waiting for her next glass of water; or Rachel, who ruins her own life by only ever pulling out of parking spots in a single direction; or Karen, who loads the kids in the car and then goes back inside to do one more thing and who, for all we know, is still in there doing who knows what. Who knows why we do these things? We see you. We feel your self-annoyance. Special thanks to Heather, who wrote in to tell us that if you keep a small bottle of isopropyl alcohol in the car, and have anyone who feels carsick take a deep sniff, you can usually head the vomiting off at the pass. Really!  https://www.nytimes.com/2018/03/13/well/live/a-cure-for-nausea-try-sniffing-alcohol.html * Leave us a rating or review in your favorite podcast app! * Join us on Facebook: https://facebook.com/whatfreshhellcast * Instagram: https://instagram.com/whatfreshhellcast * YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/c/WhatFreshHellPodcast * Pinterest: https://pinterest.com/whatfreshhellcast * Twitter: https://twitter.com/WFHpodcast * questions and feedback: info@whatfreshhellpodcast.com Learn more about your ad choices.

087: “Nesting”: Co-Parenting Under The Same Roof with Julie Cole
In this episode of The KICK-ASS Stepmom Podcast, Julie Cole, mom of 6, blogger and founder of Mabel's Labels talks about divorce and her decision to adopt the “nesting” co-parenting style after she and her husband decided to end their marriage. If you’re not familiar, “nesting” is when two parents are no longer in a romantic relationship, but choose to co-parent their kids in the matrimonial home. Each parent attends the home during their allotted parenting time and lives somewhere else when it is not. I just love getting into a peek of the many different types of co-parenting relationships and this one was no different.
