‘Stuck in a rut’ is a well worn phrase. There are times when we all feel stuck, whether it's with your parenting choices, your work, or your partner. But first realising you are stuck, and then knowing how to get out of it, isn’t easy.

In today’s episode of Mum-to-Mum Monday you'll find out how to get unSTUCK and turn your difficulties into a source for energy and positive change. With a simple methodology to unblock the things that are holding you back, you'll enrich your family time, your work and every other area of your life.

My guest today is SuperMum, Shira Taylor Gura.

Shira lives in Israel with her husband and 4 children who are 15, 12, 9 and 6. After becoming a mum, Shira started journaling and shared her experiences on a blog with those who were close to her. She talked about the issues she was facing and how she resolved her problems. Over time, her blog unwittingly gained a massive following and Shira realised that huge numbers of people were also benefiting from her teachings.

Shira went on to create the S.T.U.C.K. Method™, a simple 5-step process to help to unravel everything from minor annoyances through to big complex issues. Using her qualifications in Psychology, Occupational Therapy and Integrative Yoga Therapy, Shira can change your habits of thinking to create a richer and more rewarding life. Her book, Getting unStuck, has become the 2017 International Book Award Winner in Self-Help and an Amazon new bestseller in emotional self-help.

In today’s episode we talk about how to get unSTUCK so you can get onto the path you truly want to be on. We step through every part of the S.T.U.C.K.™ methodology to arm you with a toolkit that will make you happy and fulfilled in your everyday life.

I am delighted to have Shira on my show today. She shares her expertise for how to get unSTUCK and stay unSTUCK even in the most challenging of situations to find a place where you laugh, empathise, and enjoy life to the max.

Running a business in tandem with bring up a family is hard work. Some days you'll feel like you're making slow progress and failing in all areas. Other days you'll feel like an unstoppable train of productivity when everything goes your way.

My guest today is SuperMum, Dana Malstaff.

Dana set up Boss Mom - a community for mum entrepreneurs who are raising a family and a business at the same time - when she was pregnant with her first child. She went on to grow the company and write the Boss Mom book during her second pregnancy. In the 4 years since Boss Mom started, Dana has supported over 20,000 mums to build and grow their own businesses. Dana lives in San Diego, California with her husband, son and daughter who are 2 and 3 and a half.

In today’s episode Dana will help you discover the winning idea on which to base your business, and the 6 important pillars to make it a success. She walks through the routines needed to grow your company while fulfilling the demands of your family at the same time. We also talk about the downside of trying to have it all, including battling the dreaded mummy guilt.

Go Conquer Motherhood!

Your natural mothering instinct usually means you put your childrens' needs before your own. But sometimes that can be to your - and their - detriment. Looking after yourself first helps you to be a better parent and a more positive role model to your children.

In today’s episode of Mum-to-Mum Monday we'll be talking about the huge impact that your own physical and mental wellbeing has on the way you parent. I for one know that on the days where I've got my head together and feel calm, happy and rested, I'm a far better mummy. And, as if by magic, those are the days when my children respond to me more positively. It's a win-win situation.

My guest today is SuperMum, Clare Crew.

Clare lives in Adelaide, South Australia. She is an Educator, Speaker and Mum to 3 children aged 5, 8 and 9. Clare always wanted to work with children and is qualified in neuro-development. She earned a degree in Early Childhood Education followed by a Masters Degree in Special Education.

When Clare had her own children she thought that, with all the learning and experience she had working with children, she would have parenthood sorted. But her children taught her that there are some things you just can't learn from books.

Parenthood led Clare on a journey of transformation where she realised that the well-being of mums is just as important as the well-being of children. In juggling her children with a small age gap, practising self-care was a critical component in making sure she became the parent she wanted to be.

Clare now uses her academic knowledge and hands-on experience to empower parents and teachers with real-life strategies for supporting children's success. She does this through her blog, via the Thriving Children Podcast, and in her consulting work.

In today's episode, you'll learn that your own mindset and well-being is a fundamental part of being a great parent. By making yourself a priority rather than always putting yourself last and making do with the dregs, not only are you thriving as a mum, you're helping your children to thrive too.

I'm delighted to welcome Clare to my show today. She teaches us that, whilst there's no correct formula to parenting, looking at your own needs and answering them, helps you serves your entire family in the most productive and successful way.

Go Conquer Motherhood!

Jun 5, 2017

I was born into a traditional, 2.4-children-style family where Dad went out to work and Mum stayed at home. And I've mirrored that 'normal' set-up now I have a family of my own. Mum plus dad equals children. Simple. But because of that, it's easy to be blinkered to other family structure. 40 years later, blended, same sex, solo parent and adoptive families are equally celebrated.

In today's episode of Mum-to-Mum Monday we'll be talking about unconventional families. Growing up in a same sex family with two mums; bucking the trend of the traditional 1980's expectation; adopting children of a different heritage; and how unique family set-ups work in todays world.

My guest today is Jesse Toksvig-Stewart.

Jesse grew up in Surrey in the UK with her two Mums, Sandi and Peta, and her siblings, Megan and Theo. In the late '80s this family structure was seen as unconventional. But to Jesse, it was normal. And it was all she knew. Later in her childhood when her mums split up, Jesse and her siblings divided their time between the two households. Her family has recently been extended even more, when Sandi remarried another woman, and gave Jesse a new step-sister.

The family is close, and Jesse still lives near her mums house, with her boyfriend, Adam. They have recently warmly welcomed a sister from Pakistan heritage into their fold, whom Peta has adopted.

Wanting to map the early years of her step-sister, adopted sister, and little nephew in a baby book, Jesse realised they only catered for the conventional. Looking back at her own baby record book, she saw it was full of crossed out words and hand written headings.

Jesse was saddened that although times have changed and the world is more accepting, the printed world was lagging behind. There was no memory book that catered for her own special family, so she set out to create her own. A baby record book that celebrated her new sister’s unique place in their family, and in the world.

Alongside her illustrator friend, Kat Willott, they created an open record book called ‘My Amazing Family and Me' to welcome all children to families, no matter how they arrive, when they arrive, or how unique their family setup is.

In today's episode, we go deep on everything from same sex parents, adopted children and dealing with the sideways glances, to discussing the issues that children from unique family circumstances face, separation anxiety, and how we can all help out in the way we respond to them.

I'm delighted to welcome Jesse to my show today. She teaches us that families are built on love, not genetics and that understanding, tolerance and acceptance should be at the root of all families, no matter how unconventional their beginnings.

In his book, 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, Stephen Covey wrote, "Begin with the End in Mind means to begin each day, task, or project with a clear vision of your desired direction and destination, and then continue by flexing your proactive muscles to make things happen".

Having a clear vision for the future applies to all areas of your life, parenting is no exception.

The mothering 'project' might be long, but having a goal for what you want to achieve with your children gives you clarity from the barrage of demands, the tedium of getting dinner on the table and the worry about their school work.

Today on High Five Friday, Michelle Dawson talks about the importance of parenting with the end in mind.
