A Message About Motherhood – The Capstone To Motherhood Month :: With Dr. Carmen J Harris

All of the month of May, the Wise Idea Podcast and our host Christopher J Harris, has focused on Mom’s, Motherhood and Mother’s Day. To close out this month, we invited and hosted Dr. Carmen J Harris, a mother of four, two decade long Educator and Administrator, and personal coach to numerous women. Although Mother’s Day has officially passed, we are still saluting all of the Mom’s out there and Dr Harris’ interview was an incredible close to this month’s focus on Moms.

A Few Key Ideas:

  • If you are a mother, who is your MODEL of motherhood?
  • Who’s in your Mom’s circle?
  • How do you need to parent differently than your parents (or the models that you saw)?
  • How do you balance making sure that your child(ren) have what they need but also have a productive struggle in life that defeats entitlement?
  • What boundaries do you set for your child(ren) – regarding time, devices, activities, etc.?
  • Do you provide your child(ren) allowances? Are those allowances for grades, chores, nothing in particular?
  • Have you enabled your child(ren) to know how to respond when they’ve lost?
  • Moms, are you PRESENT (not just physically) for your child(ren)?
  • Moms, are you aware of how to ADVOCATE for your child(ren)?
  • Dr Harris provided 3 impactful, yet simple questions that helps to cultivate open lines of communication with your child(ren).
