Our role as mothers can become so overwhelming because of the many things that are expected from us. In Episode 8 of the Life Skills 4 Kids Podcast, we have an interesting conversation with Amy Taylor-Kabbaz as she talks about the challenges that mums go through, the concept of matrescence and the importance of self-care for mums.
Amy is a writer, a producer, a speaker, an international award-winning coach running numerous online programs to help mothers all over the world and, most importantly, a mother of three. She authored the best-selling book “Happy Mama: The Guide to Finding Yourself”, created the #1 iTunes meditations for children “Bedtime Explorers”, and hosts “The Happy Mama Movement” Podcast.
