Common Myths of Motherhood
Myth: A widely held but false belief or idea.
There are a number of misconceptions about parenting that exist in our culture; images and stories of happy moms, smiling babies, and magical moments fill the media and our minds. Many parents, new and veteran, come to parenting with certain expectations of themselves as parents and how parenting will look in their families. The reality is often quite different. And sometimes when expectations aren't met, and we are adjusting to a new reality, anxiety, depression, or other unwanted thoughts can catch us off guard. When this happens, remember: YOU ARE NOT ALONE.
